Talent Scouting

Exceptional talent often makes the difference between good philanthropy and great philanthropy. Vision-Five specializes in tracking down amazing people. 


Charles Harper is renowned as a global talent scout. As a “scientiavore”--or a person who feeds on knowledge and can never get enough of it--he reads hundreds of publications to keep abreast of cutting-edge developments in his areas of expertise.  He is therefore able to identify and to pursue the best talent for emerging philanthropic initiatives.


As a talent scout for the John Templeton Foundation, Charles Harper was responsible for the successful identification of many hundreds of highly talented leaders and participants for more than 200 philanthropic projects with excellent results.


Now, through Vision-Five, Charles Harper’s scientiavoric, or knowledge-based, quest for talent is offered to select clients wishing to do extraordinary things through their philanthropic activities.
