Monthly insights on disruption and innovation

Disruptive Conversation Press

Ep. 16: Are ordinary people the source of disruption? A conversation with Al Etmanski


In this podcast, I interview Al Etmanski, social entrepreneur, and author of the book Impact: Six Patterns to Spread Your Social Innovation. In this podcast, Al shares many insights on his years of working to change the system of care for people with disabilities. Al proposed and led the campaign to establish the world’s only disability savings plan – the RDSP. He is an Ashoka Fellow, and a faculty member of John McKnight’s Asset Based Community Development Institute (ABCD). He was recently awarded the Order of Canada and the Order of British Columbia. In this podcast episode, he provides wonderful insights from his years of experience on how we disrupt sectors or systems.

This podcast was recorded over Skype. Both speakers were in different locations.
