Last month, I visited the Dominican Republic on a Fathom service cruise. It was great. On the cruise, I met fellow journalist Renee Farris, who (unlike most of the travel writers on the cruise) is also an impact journalist.
Renee is also a co-founder of United Cause Agency, a consulting firm that helps companies optimize corporate social responsibility programs.
Renee has shared with me some insights about using some of the latest technology for social good storytelling that I want share with you:
On Thursday, May 25, 2016 at 3:00 Eastern, Renee will join me here for a live discussion about storytelling for good. Tune in here then to watch the interview live. Post questions in the comments below or tweet questions before the interview to @devindthorpe.
