Engaging Voices Podcast

001: Welcome to the Podcast!

Welcome to the first episode of the Engaging Voices podcast! I’m so excited to bring you conversations from business and non-profit leaders and entrepreneurs leading positive change in and around Boston.

(Listen to the full episode below.)

In this inaugural episode I want to share a little about the Engaging Voices podcast, what you can expect when you tune in and how you or someone you know can become a guest.

Why & What of Engaging Voices

Engaging Voices is an interview style podcast hosted by me, Stacey Shipman and produced by my business Engage The Room. The podcast exists to tell stories of business & non-profit leaders and entrepreneurs paving the way for positive change in and around Boston. In addition to interviews, you may occasionally hear my voice, as I share insights and stories from own experiences leading and promoting positive change.

The mission is connect people. To ENGAGE not only the guests, but you, the listener in fun, uplifting conversations that shine a light on the positive change unfolding in and around Boston.

What to Expect When You Tune-in to Engaging Voices

Podcast guests come from a variety of backgrounds and agree to candidly share their story of leading positive change. They will talk about why they do what they do, challenges they’ve overcome, and what fulfills them most. They even share how childhood dreams play out in the work they do today. (This is my favorite part!)

Think of these conversations as less “how to” and more “who are you and why do you do what you do?”

I plan to tap into the energy and excitement that drives their work.

As a listener you will gain insights and inspiration about how to bring your own ideas to life so you, too, can lead positive change. And, if you hear a story that inspires you, reach out to the guest! That’s what this is all about.

Engaging Voices love to connect.

How and Where to Tune-In

There are so many Engaging Voices in Boston, my goal is to post a new podcast episode each week on Sundays. (We’ll see how that goes!) And you can expect these conversations to last around 30 to 40 minutes.

The Engaging Voices podcast will be available on Stitcher, Apple Podcasts, or where ever you listen to your favorite podcast episodes. You can even find us online at

How to Become a Guest on Engaging Voices

For those of you listening and thinking, “I know an Engaging Voice” or “Hey! I’m an engaging voice in and around Boston!” Awesome! I’d love to hear from you.

To be considered as a guest on the Engaging Voices podcast:

  • Contact me by email
  • Write EV Podcast Guest in the subject line.
  • Include a few sentences about why you want to be a guest and the change you are leading in the Boston area.

Then, we’ll set up time to talk to see if Engaging Voices is the right fit for you. If it is we’ll schedule your interview. It is that easy.

The Bottom Line about Engaging Voices

It is a privilege to hear and tell these stories of Engaging Voices leading positive change in and around the Boston area. I’m excited to bring these conversations to you. The world needs more Engaging Voices. People committed to leading positive change, willing to share their story and inspire others to do the same.
