Dominic W.

Impact Specialist

Master's DegreeThe Da Vinci Institute

Cape Town, South Africa


I work with leaders and organisations globally to shape better social, environmental and economic futures, most recently with YPO. Combined, YPO member organisations generate $9T in revenues (the world’s 3rd largest economy) and employ 22 million people. While at YPO, I played a key role in aligning the community with the SDGs, overseeing the formalization of the relationship between XPRIZE and YPO to "scale better futures" and contributed to developing healthier team structures for deeper impact. Using a systemic approach, my experience involves strategy (organisational); regional economic development; broadcasting and motion pictures; content and communications campaigns for organisational through global audiences; raising investment finance; and research. I’ve worked in public health to formulate value generating strategies; with the United Nations to articulate and facilitate investment opportunities in climate resilient infrastructure; and Film Industries to foster global competitive advantage. Owing to my love for broadcasting, I hosted a series of experimental conversations covering a broad spectrum of topics from entertainment and cosmology to business and politics. “First Name Basis: When people connect, the world changes” is a conversation about who we are and who we want to become.
