The Right Kind of Loud for Good
Making a Difference
Making a Difference
When you invest in the Right Kind of Loud, we are making a difference together. Since the beginning of my career, I’ve been connecting with and supporting marginalized communities. The reasons are many. First of all, any of them could be me or you. It’s no coincidence my TEDx ends with my quote: The stranger next to you is you.
I learned Spanish while creating a performance with young people recovering from substance abuse in Mexico City. I’ve led creative writing workshops for incarcerated people in Dubai prison and mentally ill in Copenhagen. I’ve taught languages to refugees and asylum seekers with the Red Cross and confidence to foster youth in California.
These experiences remind me to be humble. They keep me learning. And the biggest gift of all, they make my heart grow.
When the pandemic started, I wanted to contribute. In the middle of upheaval and isolation we found ourselves needing connection more than ever. In April 2020 I started hosting zoominars with professionals around the world, holding a space for us to show up with what is. After 37(!) sessions I changed the format to Masterclasses with live Right Kind of Loud coaching, welcome to join us.
Many organizations have reached out in the virtual space, asking me to donate my time and expertise to support their mission. To mention a couple, last year I coached young entrepreneurs with their pitches for Tatawwar, meaning ‘to develop’ in Arabic. Powered by Potential, they gather teenagers from the Middle East to develop solutions for United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. I also volunteered for the Hult Prize who does the same with young professionals around the world.
This year I’ve teamed up with the social enterprise, Breakthrough. Breakthrough selects and trains prison leavers to bring diverse talent to progressive businesses. They run pre-apprenticeship programmes to train people in technical and soft skills, advancing their associates onto employment in tech positions and I am excited to support them with the Right Kind of Loud.
I’m also donating £2 for every purchase of my eBook – The Right Kind of Loud Online – Mastering meetings and presentations from your home office. By buying my services and eBook you are supporting the Breakthrough community. If you want to do more:
You are one of my very very few LinkedIn connections who have become more active during these challenging times, and you are actually using the pandemic as an opportunity to reach out, engage and help people to acquire and adapt their communication skills to the new online world.
Thank you Kim for all your efforts in connecting communities and keeping the conversation moving online!!
