    Season 5 Finale | Where should we even begin?

    Season 5 Finale | Where should we even begin?

    We are wrapping up a very special season. In #impact Podcast Season 5, we highlighted changemakers working towards the Sustainable Development Goals.























    #impact Podcast Season 5







    We are wrapping up a very special season. In #impact Season 5, we highlighted changemakers working towards the Sustainable Development Goals. 







    It’s been our longest, and most downloaded to date. 







    It’s also been our most global with new co hosts joining from across the world.







    We won several awards and celebrated engaging with our brilliant guests, our amazing listeners and our purpose-driven sponsors. 







    We experimented with virtual engagement activities that brought us closer to our community. 















    “I’m not alone in this. There is a community of individuals that commit to showing up even though it feels scary sometimes.”Regina Larko, Founder of #impact Podcast







    What started as a local podcast  in Hong Kong, has gone global.







    It has also been the season that saw the world go through a pandemic. 







    As Season 5 evolved, so did we.  We moved continents, we juggled time zones and adjusted to quarantine and home office routines. 















    We committed to showing up







    As Season 5 launched back in early 2020 so did Regina’s podcast coaching programme where she has since supported others to launch and grow their own beautiful podcasts.







    “I want to challenge myself to grow”Regina Larko, Founder of #impact Podcast















    We committed to showing up – even on the days where it felt particularly hard. 















    It has become a beautiful tradition to reflect on the journey with our co host Amanda Williams who has been moderating our grand finales ever since season 1. 















    We are so proud that we are still here, through it all, just like the brilliant individuals we got to speak to this season.







    We are so grateful that you are on this journey with us, no matter if you only just discovered #impact or if you’ve been one of our loyal listeners for many years. 















    Listen in as we take stock of what we achieved. We also look at what’s ahead, we talk about how we coped with it all, which moments stood out and somehow we stumble into the conversation not really sure where and how to even begin. 















    Press play to hear for yourself.

    Join us for a virtual LIVE Recording on Feb 16th. Register for free here to receive the invite.























    #impact Podcast turns 6!







    It’s hard to believe that six years have already gone by since the launch of our #impact Podcast! We’ve had the pleasure of interviewing inspiring changemakers and learning about their work to make a difference in their communities and around the world.







    At the beginning of this journey, we had a vision of creating a platform that would be a source of inspiration and support for those wanting to make a positive impact in the world. We wanted to give changemakers a voice and help them share their stories and insights with the world.







    Six years later, we have achieved that and so much more. We’ve had the privilege of speaking with incredible changemakers from all walks of life, from grassroots activists to NGO leaders. We’ve had conversations about a wide range of topics, from climate change to human rights, to social entrepreneurship.







    Our podcast has grown to become a highly-respected platform for changemakers. We’ve been featured in major publications and have been recognized for our commitment to amplifying the voices of those working for positive change.







    We are incredibly proud of all that we have achieved in the last six years and are excited about what the future holds. We are committed to continuing to be a source of inspiration and support for changemakers around the world and to helping them reach new heights. Here’s to another six years and beyond!







    Celebrate with us and join us for our upcoming 6 year anniversary LIVE Recording with a very special guest:

    Good Times, Good Food, Good Cause | ChariTable Vienna | Anne Babilon-Teubenbacher

    Good Times, Good Food, Good Cause | ChariTable Vienna | Anne Babilon-Teubenbacher

    “You are supporting something good and having a good time. It’s a win-win-win for everybody” Anne Babilon-Teubenbacher 























    Meet Anne







    Meet Anne Babilon Teubenbacher, the founder of CharitTable based in Vienna







    She is a partner at CPC, which is a management consultant for Change Management in her day job, currently on parental leave and she set-up the charity organsation ChariTable in her free time. Charitable’s mission is to “Give cheerfully” and in this episode you find out how they do exactly that. 







    ANNE BABILON-TEUBENBACHER







    “You are supporting something good and having a good time. It’s a win win win for everybody”Anne Babilon Teubenbacher 







    Anne came across the charity gala dinner concept during her time living in Beijing, where she started to participate in the fundraising events by “ChiFan For Charity ” regularly. 







    After she moved to Vienna she kept receiving the updates from the Beijing-based organisation and felt that it was a pity that she could not be part of their China based events anymore. She thought to herself that she could set out to organise the event herself – here in her new home Vienna.







    It all started in Beijing







    Anne lived in Beijing for 4,5 years and that’s where she got to know the concept of Chi Fan For Charity. This is the origin of ChariTable Vienna. 







    Listen in to our conversation as Anne takes us back to Beijing where it all started and how a diverse group of women is working towards growing the event concept.







    The international women bringing the idea to life







    The founders of ChariTable:Long-standing friends, Anne Babilon-Teubenbacher (@annebabilon) and Denise Blievert (@deniseblievert)







    The ChariTable volunteer team currently counts 12 women from 10 countries (and growing!) that found each other in Vienna. With their diverse backgrounds they all contribute to turning the event into a platform that allows them to learn and grow together while giving back.







    Next event on March 24th 2023 in Vienna







    Their second ChariTable Vienna event night on Friday, March 24th, 2023 will raise funds dedicated to MAHER’s new shelter home in Kolkata, India. MAHER is an official UN-registered NGO, whose mission is to change the attitude of society, especially of men towards women. Empower destitute women, children, and men with opportunities for growth, education and happiness. In the Indian Marathi language, Maher means “Mother’s Home”: a haven of hope, belonging, and understanding.   















    What learnings from last year’s event will they bring to their upcoming Charitable event in March 2023, how do the volunteers manage their time to balance their life, work commitments and other responsibilities, what will the participating restaurants and guests get out of the experience, all while making an impact?







    Press play and you will find out.

    From first idea to scaling social impact | The Impact Competition

    From first idea to scaling social impact | The Impact Competition

    A huge thanks to our sponsor The Impact Competition. They fund case competitions that provide a financial incentive for teams of students to brainstorm effective solutions for the most pressing issues affecting the communities they live in.  Traditional case competitions offer a theoretical proposal that students are tasked with solving. However, the Impact Competition aims to solve local, real-world issues, and provides the funding for the students to see their solution in action.  Like when Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business partnered with local Non Profit Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County, The students came up with an innovative housing solution to help Habitat’s mission.In this episode, you will find out how this exact case worked, as well as how The Impact Competition got started in the first place. You will hear 3 voices that all played their part in filling that first idea of the Impact Competition with life, action and impact. 























    Seeing the big impact one idea can have







    Meet Lance Breitstein, a graduate of Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business who spent over a decade as one of the best short term equity traders on Wall Street.  At 32 he retired to start The Impact Competition.

    The Impact Competition funds case competitions which challenge students to find solutions for a different local non-profit each year. Students then implement the solutions using the Impact Competitions seed money. The Impact Competition currently runs this program for example at Indiana University, University of Maryland, University of Chicago, Johns Hopkins and more to come. 







    Essentially they are turning students into future donors, volunteers, and philanthropists while helping local non-profits in the process. 







    Why not me?















    This is what Lance asked himself as he started to share his idea with others. One of the first people who heard about his idea was Wendi Goodlett, back then she was working with the Kelley School of Business but has since taken on the role as President and Chief Executive Officer of Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County.

    Wendi worked as a volunteer on the construction site through the Women Build program of Habitat for Humanity for 11 years prior to joining the staff.







    She is committed to providing access to affordable and sustainable homeownership opportunities for underserved populations, while building community and engaging people in Habitat’s mission. 







    As the Impact Competition went into its first inaugural round at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business, Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County was selected as the beneficiary receiving seed money to implement the solutions that the competing students came up with.







    Empowering NGO’s not just with advice but hands-on support 







    It wasn’t easy to pick the winning idea, as the students came up with many great suggestions that all had the potential to help Habitat to realise their vision world where everyone has a decent place to live.

    Actually implementing change
