Hello, Happy New Year and welcome to our first episode for 2021!
We couldn’t think of a better guest to start the year with than social entrepreneur Ronni Kahn, the Founder and CEO of OzHarvest.
Ronni is a South African who’s lived in Australia for many years. The story of how she founded and then grew OzHarvest is really quite something.
If you’re not familiar with OzHarvest, it’s Australia’s leading food rescue organisation, ensuring that quality, untouched food from supermarkets and big events gets delivered to provide meals for those in need and saving good food going to landfill.
Incredibly OzHarvest has delivered 160 million meals in Australia to date. Plus, it’s expanded overseas as well.
Ronni recently released her memoir, called A Repurposed Life and we explore her fascinating life and career journey in this episode including:
- How Ronni’s early life, from growing up in South Africa, to living on a kibbutz in Israel helped shape her ultimate purpose to end food waste
- How her earlier entrepreneurial endeavours with florist shops, pyramid-selling skin care, and a flourishing events business, helped her build her self confidence and enabled her to think bigger
- How OzHarvest has had to pivot and adapt through COVID, and
- Why Ronni advises you not to wait to give more than you get
If you’re looking to find your purpose, get some inspiration or hear how someone else has made career transitions then don’t miss this episode with the focused and impressive Ronni Kahn.
