The Stone Soup way is a new philosophy of business, development, philanthropy and living that combines age-old wisdom with contemporary insights and skills. It derives inspiration from the hugely important message embodied in the traditional folktale, Stone Soup.
So what is it all about?
Making the world a better place—for you, for me, for everybody—calls for teamwork on a massive scale and for real leaders to emerge from their communities, workplaces and homes.
Businesses, NGOs, community groups and really all types of organisation work better, more fairly and more effectively when everyone contributes what they can—and everybody has something valuable to contribute, from the most junior member of the group to the most seasoned.
People, nations and our world all need investment in terms of work, commitment and expectations. By working together and by expecting and demanding only the best of ourselves and others, we can create a truly meaningful revolution—one that will make our world a better, fairer and more hopeful place for this generation and for generations to come.

The future depends on what we do in the present.
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
Harold R. McAlindon
What chance gathers she easily scatters. A great person attracts great people and knows how to hold them together.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Go to the people. Learn from them. Live with them. Start with what they know. Build with what they have. The best of leaders when the job is done, when the task is accomplished, the people will say we have done it ourselves.
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
Take calculated risks. That is quite different from being rash.
George S. Patton
