Our award-winning podcast, Igniting Change is back for another season!
What started out as a way to sit down (virtually) with our guests across the environmental sector to gain insight into why consumers aren’t making more sustainable choices, has evolved into discussions around the fascinating work each guest is doing across the environmental, humanitarian and financial sectors and how they are using tech as a force for good.
Humanity is facing a myriad of crises, and we are honoured to use this platform to spotlight the incredible work our guests are doing around the world to change millions of lives for the better.
It’s easy to read the news and feel overwhelmed, but the inspiring stories of each guest truly showcase the immense power technology has in lending aid to the biggest problems facing us today. It’s our aim to get the right people in the right room to create solutions to the world’s biggest problems. We do this through collaborative events, with past speakers from WWF, The World Food Programme, and UNESCO as well as research reports and of course, here on our podcast.
Our hosts from 3 Sided Cube include Richard Strachan, CEO, Gabby Crouch, Head of Client Success, and Puff Story, USA Co-Founder. Our hosts are absolutely FANTASTIC at driving a great discussion with each and every guest. While we operate under the motto of more is more when it comes to tech for good and could talk about it all day, it’s fascinating to hear about the interesting stories and lives our guests lead. With our hosts being scattered across the globe, this means that we are able to accommodate differing time zones to ensure that we get the very best podcast guests for you!

We started Igniting Change because we believe technology can create a better future. Working with organisations including the American Red Cross, Forest Watcher, the World Resources Institute, and LUSH, we are embarking on a mission to create apps that enable and nudge people, businesses, and NGOs to improve their efforts and make better choices.
If you are currently using tech for good within your organisation, we would love to talk about how you could join an episode and ignite change with us! Shout us a holla and let’s chat!
