We’ve Got A Podcast! Sometimes a great opportunity just…happens. Some good fortune, plus Lynn Giovannelli’s networking skills, helped make a great opportunity happen in June when Lynn, Mary Frey, Melissa Johnson, and Susan Dowd worked with host Craig Pratt to record the first GIVING WoMN podcast.
Craig is a tech guy, working for ServiceNow, a company that transforms old ways of doing things into digital workflows; but his other passion is making a difference. He has an enterprising spirit and a big heart. That’s why he’s developed a podcast series he calls Next Level Leader. Craig says his purpose for the podcast is “to highlight ordinary people doing extraordinary things to help others live on the next level.” In addition to the podcast about GIVING WoMN, he has featured Loaves & Fishes and Avenues (formerly Avenues for Homeless Youth), a 2006 and 2013 GIVING WoMN grantee, along with other individuals and organizations doing important community work.
It’s exciting to be able to tell GIVING WoMN’s story in this NEW way, and we’re very fortunate that the podcast will be ours to use as we wish, beginning with adding it to our website. It will also be available on the podcast app on your phone and through Apple Podcasts by searching “Next Level Leader.” To make it super easy to listen, here is the LINK!
