If you could have dinner with 1 person who you regard as a leader, who would it be and why?

Dumbledore because he is brilliant, his failings make him human, and I really want to understand the reasons behind some of the decisions he made, as a person in power.

If you could create your own social enterprise, what would it be and why?

I would create a social enterprise that trains and empowers young women to become civic leaders because that is an area where women are grossly under-represented and effective change only happens when a diversity of perspectives are considered.
