  4. Hello Rishad,
    I first came across a quote of yours and now have found your blog that fits well with approaches and philosophies I have in using marketing for social change – see my blog/website for a selection. I am contacting you to ask if I can use the quote on the website and in print pieces for my consultancy, socialShift. it is: “The future doesn’t fit in the containers of the past.” That’s what I am all about – bringing innovation to the public health and social change arena (couldn’t have said it any better’). I hope to hear from you concerning the request, and hope we can stay in touch and create some sparks.
