Meet the Team
The Greatest Good platform has been co-designed with the generous support of a range of consumers, for-purpose organisations and service providers to the for-purpose sector. Their input, feedback, comments and suggestions helped to guide the ecosystem functionality.
We also had a number of individuals and organisations that contributed substantial time to test the platform to ensure it works how we all envisaged it would.
We are very grateful for all of the time and support that everyone provided in helping Greatest Good become a full-service ecosystem for conscious consumers and for-purpose organisations alike, allowing everyone to individually and collectively do their greatest good.
Greatest Good is run by a small team of staff and volunteers:
