Masami Sato


Masami Sato was born in Japan yet her desire to expand her horizons took her on a journey of exploration travelling throughout the world.

Her way of travelling was about connecting with people to gain insights and understandings of different cultures, lifestyles and environment. In the past 16 years, she has lived in Canada, Guatemala, New Zealand, Australia and Singapore and travelled to more than 30 countries in 5 continents.

Though originally educated to become an architect in Japan, her career has followed her diverse talent and extensive interests having been a teacher, a translator, an entrepreneur and a natural food chef (and a farmer!). Since 2001, she has co-founded and run commercial enterprises aiming to transform the way businesses are operated today.

And by taking a completely new look at the power of connection and business giving, she founded B1G1 in 2007—to create a world that’s full of giving. B1G1 now works with more than 600 businesses globally supporting projects in 30+ countries.

She is also an author of two books, ‘JOY - The gift of acceptance, trust and love’ and ‘ONE - Sharing the joy of giving’.
