Linda used her extensive knowledge of private sector engagement to develop this unique program for business leaders, employees and individuals; enabling personal and professional development whilst simultaneously bringing meaningful change to the world.

Be The Change (BTC) takes passionate, inspiring and creative leaders and uses their professional and personal skills to solve some of the world’s seemingly most intractable problems. Developed in 2010, BTC participants have the opportunity to join Linda on a life-changing experience on the frontline (various locations worldwide). BTC is available as a stand-alone experience or can be wrapped around the Courageous Leadership online program. As a team, the BTC ambassadors devise a business plan to economically and socially uplift a village using a ‘hand up’, business-led approach; exploring ways of injecting vibrancy, innovation and new market opportunities into the community. An unforgettable experience!

Be The Change is available as a full leadership program or a stand-alone frontline experience.

“I would never have imagined that my professional expertise could have been so useful, applied in a vastly different environment to my day-to-day life. The transformation I witnessed in the remote Himalayan community will stay with me forever. Linda is an expert, an inspiration and a seamless facilitator. A must experience for anyone who wants to feel that depth of sustainable contribution and far better than any traditional development training experience.”
