Episode 76 - Clare Risman, Executive Director of the St George's Society of New York
We talk to Clare Risman, former British diplomat and now Executive Director of the St George’s Society of New York.
We talk about the historic charity, their role supporting everyone from Titanic survivors, to creating a 9/11 Memorial Garden to the wide range of support they provide today.
We discuss running a charity during a global pandemic, how donors are treated like investors and ways of giving beyond just financial.
Clare talks about her time in Government, the adventures supporting the GREAT Campaign including trying to navigate a London Bus around New York, introducing Prince Harry to the Queen of Dragons and her adventures with the Red Arrows aerobatic display team.
A fun and interesting discussion about modern diplomacy and charity.
