Invisible Giants is a book about leadership, choices in life and the potential in everyone to make a difference.
Author Lindsay Levin, who founded the social enterprise Leaders’ Quest in 2001, tells the stories of some of the remarkable people she has met in the course of her work.
The Invisible Giants of the book are individuals who have overcome a lack of education and resources
to re-energise their communities; and business leaders who strive to integrate purpose alongside profit. They are female
activists in slums campaigning to end the exclusion of girls from
school; and environmentalists who are tackling the effects of
industrialisation on the world’s ecosystem. And they are also the people
we meet every day, who are revisiting their life choices.
Invisible Giants are the figures who emerge, often against the odds, to inspire confidence and invest energy in those around them.
This is also the story of Lindsay’s own quest to ask: “what really matters?” and to figure out where the answers can take her.

Generous, deeply personal and beautifully written.
Tom Glocer, former CEO, Thomson Reuters
An inspiring journey with wonderful stories of exceptional people beating the odds to accomplish extraordinary things. It challenges us to think differently about the purpose of business and the role that leaders should play in society.
Bob Bechek, Worldwide Managing Director, Bain & Company
Truly inspiring. It’s not about privileged do-gooders who clamour for media attention, but “karmayogis”: people who bring about change in quiet and purposeful ways.
Anu Aga, Chairperson, Teach For India; Director, Thermax Limited
Lindsay’s quest takes us to Indian slums and South African prisons, but most importantly on a transformative inner journey – one which starts with curiosity and leads to courageous actions, changing the world one leader at a time.
Virginie Helias, Global Director, Sustainability, Procter & Gamble
Many have written about leadership. Invisible Giants explores its moral meaning. Lindsay seeks inspiration from grassroots leaders, and takes people to worlds they never normally encounter.
