Watch the interview with our founder Amie Peacock on Filipino TV.
Amie Peacock is a creative global leader and the founder of BEYOND The Conversation (est. 2016), a grassroots organization inspired by the experiences of herself and the people around her battling loneliness. Her vision with BEYOND is to end social isolation and weave her community together through friendships. Her Southeast Asian upbringing has helped her share a unique narrative on what it means to foster a sense of belongingness within people, particularly marginalized groups, such as youth, new immigrants, and senior populations who struggle with loneliness and mental health issues.
Utilizing her entrepreneurial mindset, Peacock has inspired many to embody the spirit of friendship to help alleviate social isolation one connection at a time. She firmly believes that everyone has a right to a fulfilling life, and is uncompromising in her efforts to bring that message to life through her work in the community. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, Peacock, along with her community partners, has discovered plenty of unlikely connections and opportunities. With the use of technology, BEYOND has been able to reach a global audience, their own team representing 24 countries and 22 languages.
In 2021, Peacock launched a “Social Prescription” project that works to ease the burdens of healthcare burnout, lack of government funding, and high insurance costs. The ultimate goal is to weave family and community fabrics with modern technology to bring a more holistic approach to healthcare that also includes medicine for the soul: valuable friendships and connections. Recognized by GivingTuesday: Starling Collective Fellow for her leadership and influence, Peacock represented BEYOND as one of the 50 grassroots organizations around the world that brought extraordinary, positive changes to their community.
Her greatest joy and accomplishment of all is leading an intergenerational and inclusive team of 50+ individuals who, even in the midst of an ever-changing world, are ever-so inspired to drive their
collective movement for a happier and thriving community. Often quoted in major newspapers, radio shows, and TV news, Peacock is recognized by national media for her commitment to ending loneliness and social isolation. She has also been a guest speaker at Vancouver Foundation, an academic institution, as well as at healthcare summits on, both, a national and global level.
As Peacock believes, “To possess power is a privilege, it’s a gift to be given away.” Her heart sings the loudest when she devotes her efforts to mentoring leaders, some as young as 16 years old to 50 years old
