Jun 2, 2024

“I just want to make sure the right people get the right things in the right way. And I also want to make sure that people like you and me could have a direct impact on a disaster event that's happening overseas."


This is a special episode only available to our podcast subscribers, which we call The Mini Chief. These are short, sharp highlights from our fabulous CEO guests, where you get a 5 to 10 minute snapshot from their full episode.

This Mini Chief episode features Juliette Wright OAM, Founder & Director of GIVIT and Recovere.

Her full episode is titled Revolutionising misguided charitable giving, having a million conversations, and leaning into anxiety.

Juliette is an Australian social entrepreneur who has devoted herself to alleviating poverty and addressing crises since founding GIVIT in 2009.

What started as a simple desire to donate baby clothes evolved into the creation of a groundbreaking world-first platform that offers efficient and effective disaster relief across Australia.

Under Juliette’s leadership, GIVIT grew into one of the country’s largest and most successful donation platforms, garnering endorsements from government bodies and facilitating over 8.5 million donations and supporting over 4,500 non-profit organisations nationally during crises and disasters.

Juliette's experience in developing innovative IT platforms, navigating stakeholder and government relations and managing rapid growth, positions her uniquely in her current role as CEO of Recovere, a social enterprise that supports international communities to manage donations post-crisis.

Juliette has been recognised with numerous awards, including being named an Australian of the Year Local Hero in 2015 and receiving the Order of Australia Medal (OAM) in 2019.

In the full episode we talk about:

✅  The origins of GIVIT, which was born out of addressing the negative side of donations

✅  How she handles the “million conversations” rule of social enterprises and getting past bureaucracy

✅  Why and how she leans into anxiety in order to be happy, and

✅  Her new role with Recovere and solving the biggest headache in disaster events.

Deal hope,
