Guillaume Wiatr ,

This show will motivate you to go from good to great

It’s easy to second-guess yourself if you’re running a small non-profit, but it shouldn’t be that way. This show gives a ton of new ideas, perspectives, and tips. Patrick knows how to get the best from his guests. I know because I was one of them in one of his most recent episodes.

Patrick rules the school!!

Patrick Kirby is hands down one of the best - if not THE BEST - podcast host on the planet! His love for non profits is infectious. As guest I could have talked to him for hours and as a listener I want it to go on forever. Follow this podcast!!

Good in the 'Hood ,

Highlighting the good works being done

It was a great joy to visit with Patrick Kirby, host of the Do Good Better podcast program. I appreciate the great work he and his team are doing to highlight those who are doing charitable works in the community and to help inspire others to do likewise.
