Training and engagement to foster high-trust online environments.
The Trust Changers Podcast is Coming Soon!
The Internet is full of challenges, but it’s also a dream come true for access and opportunity. In the Trust Changers podcast, host Shaley DeGiorgio talks with individuals and experts about how the Internet is shaping our lives and what we can do to build confidence online. Trust Changers critical thinking, communicating, and collaborating tips are shared in every episode.
Topics include anything that might be funny, inspiring, teach a lesson, make a point, provide a warning, or make life easier, etc.—as long as it happened online. This is a family show, so we’ll keep it PG. Otherwise, it’s an opportunity to learn from each other and maybe add a couple of Trust Changers to our toolbox!
Do you have stories about an online experience that changed your life? For better or worse, we want to hear the struggles and the joys. To volunteer as a Trust Changers podcast guest, please reach out to Shaley DeGiorgio, via LinkedIn.

Attendees learn how to teach the curriculum, position themselves as influencers, build online engagement, foster trust, and align organization-wide technology-use expectations. Community-manager preparation includes 12 hours of training spread over 3 days, with 8–12 hours of independent work.
Certified Community Managers are key organizational partners. Whenever possible, they should teach Online Academy skills within sponsor organizations. By design, this (1) quickly spreads the full skillset across as many people as possible and (2) nurtures a culture of trust between community managers and all levels of the organization. Multiple community managers can exist within an organization—in fact, it’s encouraged!
AS A BONUS, community managers are invited to share stories on the Trust Changers podcast, thereby bringing attention to an organization’s dedication to a high-trust environment.
