SPIN IT: Business & Crisis Management with Stephynie Malik

#15: Leveraging LinkedIn to Spread Positivity with Richard DiPilla

October 25, 2021

Richard DiPilla doesn’t use his LinkedIn account for professional growth. Instead, he uses it to share positive messages to his over 1.3 million followers.

Richard is the founder and CEO of Global Goodwill Ambassadors, a nonprofit public charity which utilizes global humanitarians to solve real-life problems in the most disadvantaged parts of the world. He also recently started a new initiative called the “My Body is My Body” program, which is a free child abuse prevention programn which anyone can access and use. 

In this episode, Stephynie is talking with Richard about how he brought more than 19,000 humanitarians together over social media and how he stays so positive in the face of so many problems all over the world.
