Welcome to the Conspiracy of Goodness Podcast! Our thought leader for today is Liesl Ulrich-Verderber, Chief Executive Officer of the Ever Widening Circles. She also founded the Amazing World Media and EWCed to collate innovative and inspiring videos that also trigger curiosity and creativity among their target audience.
In this episode, Liesl will talk about the variety of ways to see goodness in a world that brings us negative thoughts, ideas, and news. We categorize those ways under the umbrella term, Conspiracy of Goodness. It involves building a community based on vulnerability to allow people to be themselves while still contributing valuable inputs to their peers.
Let’s listen to Liesl and learn the truth behind the Conspiracy of Goodness!
