THE INSPIRING LIVES GLOBAL STORY
Inspiring Lives Global took birth in 2008 when Tiamara Williams set out on a journey to empower and inspire humanity to live their best life and create a better world.
As a talkshow host and TV producer Tiamara imagined her way would be via media, bringing to light the great positive changemakers on the planet. She started out by leaving New Zealand and heading to India to interview the most inspirational globally recognized Indians she could find.
Her criteria was people who were top of their game, living their truth with great integrity and committed to making a difference in the world.
She met with and interviewed Narayana Murty (Founder of Infosys, voted Ernst and Young “World Entrepreneur of the year”), Shabana Azmi – Bollywood actress and activist for the poor, Sri Sri Ravishankar Nobel Peace Award Nominee, humanitarian, peace maker and spiritual leader to 20 million, Kiran Bedi – living legend who transformed the worst prison in India, and in Bangladesh the Nobel Peace Laureate and Medal of Freedom Recipient Mohammad Yunnus.
Returning to NZ with the footage Tiamara realized that inspiring as these great leaders are in order to fulfill on her purpose the ordinary person making a difference needed to be represented. The world leaders were a true inspiration but to reach the hearts of humanity she needed to show the regular person taking action.
So she set out to make a difference in the developing world herself and with a crew in tow filmed the content of the 10 part TV series Inspiring Lives Global.
For a year Tiamara travelled the globe and in each destination she formed a team of ordinary people to participate in hands on projects. Together they took action on humanitarian and environmental projects.
Our mission was to uplift and inspire humanity to live their best lives and create a better world.
