Welcome to Impact Conversations, the podcast dedicated to inspiring change-makers and those passionate about making a difference. In each episode, we engage in insightful discussions with NGO leaders, philanthropists, and social entrepreneurs who drive positive change in their communities. Tailored for non-profit teams and anyone looking to amplify their impact, join us each episode as we uncover the stories, strategies, and insights that inspire meaningful change in our communities.

This podcast was originally hosted by Social Impact Advisors, who recently merged with Laridae. It is currently on hiatus, but we will be re-launching it in 2024. In the meantime, we encourage you to tune into our previous episodes and enjoy the wisdom shared by leaders across Canada.
