Episode 122 – Elliot Connor

Welcome to another episode of The HERO Show. I am your host Richard Matthews, (@AKATheAlchemist) and you are listening to episode #122 with Elliot Connor — Reframing the Human Relationship with the Natural World.

Elliot Connor is an Australian popular science writer, presenter, and producer who is best known for founding the international non-governmental organization called “Human Nature Projects.” Through his NGO, Elliot supports volunteers across 104 countries as of this writing.

He is also the author of “Human Nature,” stating his life’s goal as “reframing our human relationship with the natural world.” Elliot’s work has been recognized with various honors and accolades, including Samsung’s 2020 Eco-Hero Award, Young Citizen of the Year and Young Landcare Leader titles.

Here’s just a taste of what we talked about today:

  • At a very young age, Elliot Conner is currently leading an international community within the conservation sector and acting as an entry point for the general public to become more involved with environmental volunteering.
  • How does it look for a youth like Elliot to penetrate the environmentalism space? Learn exactly what the challenges he faces regularly as he navigates between small teams and executives from all over the planet.
  • Find out exactly how non profit organizations, like Elliot’s Human Nature Projects, drive revenue to cover costs and make sure that they keep doing what they are passionate about.
  • The number one logistical nightmare for CEOs below the legal age when it comes to running the company.
  • Next, we take a peek at how Elliot’s organizational structure looks like and learn how a non-profit organization operates.
  • Take note of some of the tools that Elliot uses to run his international organization, Human Nature Projects, and the skills he had to develop in order to effectively lead a diverse group of volunteers all over the world.
  • Join us on a quick flashback to Elliot’s first job before he founded Human Nature Projects. What set him on the path to pursue his passion for environmental protection?
  • One of Elliot’s biggest hurdles at the beginning was his lack of confidence to start his Human Nature Projects. Listen and learn how he was able to communicate his goals clearly and become very successful in working with an international legion of environmentalists.
  • There is a whole plethora of environmental issues that Elliot and his organization tackle every day. The kryptonite that Elliot is trying to overcome is essentially in human nature itself.
