Episode 69: Small Triumphs and Large Hearts - the Definition of a Sourcing Hero

By Brittany Reilly | June 15, 2022

As the host of The Sourcing Hero podcast, Kelly Barner brings listeners a new guest every week. They share their stories, experiences, and expertise in a casual format – so everyone can learn from them and also to share a bit of their human side. 

Each guest goes through a pre-interview to talk about their background and pick their main topic… and then, Kelly warns them. 

Every episode ends with an exceptionally hard question that draws correspondingly fascinating responses. Guests are presented with two options: to share their definition of a sourcing hero, or to explain what they think heroism looks like in a business context.


In this episode, Kelly shares three of the most inspiring responses she has heard in the last six months, as well as a relevant quote from author Mary Roach:

“Heroism doesn’t always happen in a burst of glory. Sometimes small triumphs and large hearts change the course of history.”

Listen in to hear thoughts on heroism from Magda Theodate, Ashley Sieb, and Una’s own Kris Lance, and then try to answer those two questions for yourself.
