Learn from Kate Gilman Williams, 12-year-old animal activist, founder of Kids Can Save Animals, Club 15 podcast and author of Let’s Go on Safari! Seasons Leadership Co-Founders Susan Ireland and Debbie Collard interview Kate about leadership, advocacy having no age limit and the importance of saving animals.

Show Notes: Kate opens up about what inspired her to become an activist at the age of seven and shares the story of her first safari (3:03). Next Kate talks about how she expanded her role as an activist and started podcasting (5:00). The conversation gets serious about the urgency of helping save animals now (5:42) with Kate sharing that every 8 hours a rhino is killed for its horn and every 15 minutes an elephant is killed for its tusk.

Kate shares a story about how the kids at her school helped koalas (6:29) to show how kids everywhere can have an impact. She talks about the mentors that inspire her (7:00) including Jane Goodall and Sara Maston. Kate shares her mission (8:03) to save animals and to teach advocacy. She expands on this idea (9:22) by explaining that many kids get inspired by other issues to help as well and how she hopes her advocacy can provide an example of how kids can make a difference.

Finally, the conversation turns to Kate’s most pressing challenges (10:06) to get the word out and Susan and Debbie discuss how we are not all just one thing (12:04) but that we can, like Kate, have many passions. Kate encourages all people to get involved (12:04) in stopping the use of animals for entertainment.

Communicating my brand of values (If I can do it, you can too!)

What is your personal brand? Could you answer this question? Many of my coaching clients have shared their frustration at being asked this recently during job interviews.
