Australian Philip Wollen is a former vice-president of Citibank, who, at the age of 34, was named Australian Business Magazine's top 40 headhunted executives in Australia. In 2007 he won the Australian of the Year award. Soon after he departed Citibank, he became a vegetarian and has since been deeply engaged in the animal rights' movement.
His speech at the St James Ethics and the Wheeler Centre debate is passionate, thoughtful, layered, factual, and unapologetic. Even though I'm already a vegan, his comments rattled my soul and made greater my conviction. It's worth a listen. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQCe4qEexjc]
