The Truth Seminar

Doug Harland

One man’s journey into transformational leadership

In 1987, Doug Harland was blessed with a spiritual experience that confirmed for him the existence of a higher power and delivered insights that were both practical and applicable. As a result, his leadership style became more humane and he focussed on building a long-term sustainable business. To everyone's amazement, he transformed an old, derelict business, with origins in the Industrial Revolution (and previously written off as a lost cause), into a shining success. Doug believes our social and economic structures are ripe for review. The insights he shares here altered his relationship with the natural world and might just transform your life!



About the Author

John Tobin - author

Doug Harland lives in Toowoomba Queensland and is a passionate advocate for sustainable, social, and environmental change.

In 2016 he was awarded the Order of Australia Medal for establishing Sunrise Way a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility in Toowoomba. He worked tirelessly with a team of volunteers and the local community to raise over $2m in cash, donations, and in-kind work.  This facility has successfully assisted hundreds of young Australians to overcome addiction to live a normal life.  During the same period, he established the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia, which is now involved with $170bn of civil infrastructure projects across the nation. Prior to this he led an unexpected turnaround of an iconic 122-year-old manufacturing business. Working his way up from the shop floor to General Manager, he turned this derelict business into a profitable, well respected exporter of quality products to the rest of the world.

Doug has been president of The National Cast Metals Council, The Australian Foundry Institute and Australian Industry Group; has been a member of electricity, education, and health sector boards; and won multiple business and, environmental awards, including a Confederation of British Scholarship to study in the UK in 1977

The experience of a higher power transformed Doug’s life, and while not a religious person, he now views humanity as living in a spiritual vacuum, and believes there is a great need to move our economic focus from corporations back to the community.
