Purposeful Values... Contributing To A Better World - Paul D. Lowe And Natalia Blagoeva, Noha Hefny & Keshav Gupta

View descriptionShare

Paul is joined by three returning guests on this episode; Natalia Blagoeva, Noha Nefny and Keshav Gupta to talk about how certain values we hold can be holding us back and how others, or changing the undated ones we already hold, may help to make the world a better place.

Is it even a necessity to have values, are they really that important, are they just a luxury? Or are they core to being your authentic self, are they the force behind every action you take and how do they impact the way you see yourself and others? Is it time for us to go back to basics?


  • Context and culture change the meanings of certain ways of looking, like ‘ladies first’ being patronising. In some ways, more traditional values should be applied more in the world today.
  • We’ve reached a point where words have very little meaning when they’re used in branding, both corporate and personal, and we’re inventing new words so that we stand out from the crowd. Sometimes we see people that truly share our values but we also see a kind of hypocrisy where we say the same things but we mean completely different things. This is a problem with big organisations. Start-ups are usually much more connected to their values.
  • During the pandemic people realised that they need to stand up for what matters most and reconnect to their values that they stand for, to be there for their children, their partners, their communities and that these are the things that truly matter.
  • Love is beyond just partners or family, it’s love of humanity, love for the  planet, love for the people, connecting with others on a soul/spiritual level. It’s for the good of not just ourselves, but for our communities. But to have love you must have shared values or motivators.
  • I’m tired of seeing amazing people burning their wings and getting disheartened because they’re not able to achieve what they’re really passionate about. People need to collaborate and partner with people who share their dreams. It will help to scale our impact.’


‘We all have values that lead us, they’re much deeper and exist whether we talk about them or not.’

‘If you don’t know the values that are important to you, how will you do business with anyone?’

‘The basic, core values of humanity are the ones that really matter: kindness; compassion; empathy; love.’

‘We need to be able to talk to people with completely different opinions to us and move beyond either/or situations and trying to be right.’
