A&K's Extraordinary Impact Speakers Series

Over the past year or so when hosting physical events has not been possible, we have kept in touch with you by a variety of means. One of these has been via our newly launched Extraordinary Impact Speakers Series, where some of our most admired friends and partners have appeared virtually to share their story. We recorded each series so you have the opportunity to listen and watch below:

Meet our very own Keith Sproule, Executive Director of Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropy

Keith Sproule was our first Extraordinary Speaker we had in 2020 as he shared important information on how Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropy (AKP) was supporting its 125,000 community members worldwide during this COVID-19 global crisis.

AKP has remained fully committed to supporting vulnerable communities since the pandemic hit and we’d like to share a virtual update on the life-changing initiatives Keith and his dedicated team have put in place.
