As a community and thought-leader, George is always searching for other leaders that have experienced a spark moment in their lives that led them on the path to creating change. In Episode 309 of The Launchcast the LaunchDad interviews Janice Lintz, a person that changed hearing access in the US, disrupted the hearing aid market and now, along with her organization Hearing Access & Innovations, is working on global best practices. What you may not know is that this guest was booked on the show because of George's growing passion for hearing access advocacy due to his second daughter's hearing disability. This one gets personal and it's a must listen.
Hosted by entrepreneur and keynote/TEDx speaker George Andriopoulos.
