Talking to John Shegerian, and sharing our very personal and raw story, was like sitting down with a close friend. Thank you to John and the entire Impact Podcast team for providing the space and time to bare a bit of my soul for your listeners.

One of the best things about my role as CSO at Verizon is the people. I’ve had the great pleasure of meeting some amazing individuals in the industry who challenge me, support similar goals and give a voice to the exciting initiatives underway in support of the planet. I recently got a chance to chat with one such individual, ERI Executive Chairman and host of the Impact podcast, John Shegerian.

We discussed Verizon’s two green bonds, our involvement in The Climate Pledge, how COVID-19 has impacted Verizon’s sustainability and supply chain initiatives and much more. This was my second interview with John and it was such a pleasure to share a bit more about our opportunities and our challenges with his listeners. We’ve stayed focused on our goals through this unprecedented year, reaching for them daily - the Verizon way.

I hope every listener can take away something that will allow them to focus on their own personal or corporate goals. I’m so thrilled to play a small part in the global fight for climate action and always happy to sit down with inspiring people like John.

Having done many podcasts and interviews over the years, I can say that John Shegerian brings an additional energy to his interviews. It’s very evident that John had taken the time to read my book and did his research, which was evident in the excellent questions delivered. It was an honor to be the first veteran on the show and I look forward to following the Impact podcast myself to hear from more of the show’s great guests.

Talking with John Shegerian on the Impact Podcast was terrific, and I even came away with important insights into my own business. I was really grateful for joining John, who has left such a big and important impact on the industry himself.
