CIPS CONNECTIONSPodcast/Video Interviews by Stephen Ibaraki
Emma Hoch, Young Leader, Global Impact Officer, One Young World Ambassador, with PPLE expertise – transformational global change maker working towards positive impact across communities
This week, Stephen Ibaraki has an exclusive interview with Emma Hoch.
Emma Hoch is a young leader who creates impact by leveraging powerful networks. As the first YNG Global Impact Officer, she is in charge of the impact journey for 20,000+ YNG members. Her goal is to expose members to the world changing possibilities that the YNG/YPO network possesses and inspire them to take action for a cause close to their hearts, whether it is for the environment or helping refugees.
As a One Young World ambassador, Emma has spear-headed the collaboration between the two global networks, to enable YNGers to be a part of the next generation of thought leadership, and help them make the connections needed to amplify the impact they want to make.
Next to co-founding the first global YNG "Hack the Future" Hackathon, she is part of programs connecting refugees to YPO mentors, as well as advocating and supporting YPO companies to reduce their CO2-emissions. Her big passion is to connect the dots between young leaders and organizations, CEOs as well as experts.
Outside of her work in global networks, she is part of a young women team to improve conversations and connections between users and their loved ones through "Wondr", a mobile app, first launched as connection students on walks during the pandemic in Amsterdam, and is growing across Europe to help people with their holistic self development.
Emma is based in Amsterdam, where she is studying Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics (PPLE) at the University of Amsterdam. Next to her passion for changemaking and impact, she continues following her childhood passions of dancing and singing and has yet to decline an opportunity to be on stage.
