In this episode, I’m really excited to have as my guest, Ashley Nichols, author of Tech to Save the World. Ashley brings more than 10 years of experience working with executives from the White House to Wall Street and beyond. In her consulting tenure, she has served a number of internationally-facing USG and multilateral clients including the World Bank, the Department of State, and the Millennium Challenge Corporation.

In her book Tech to Save the World, Ashley explores the idea that everyday people with a passion can use technology to build a better world. The book is a toolkit and a step-by-step guide, to be used as a resource for people who want to make a difference but don't know where to start.

In our discussion, Ashley talked to me about:

  • Her principles of Idealistic Innovation
  • The importance of enlisting support and collaboration for implementing ideas
  • That there is no such thing as a tech person, or why we can all combine our specialist skills with tech
