INTERNATIONAL

LeaderImpact Global Exchanges give business leaders an opportunity to give back by bringing their knowledge, influence, and expertise to marketplace leaders in other countries around the world.

Past trips have included destinations in Mexico, Colombia, Ecuador and Panama. For upcoming trips, see below.

If you’re in one of our global cities and would like more information about how to engage locally, please contact leaderimpact@cru.org.

During the pandemic, the Global Exchange program had to be put on hold. Find out how our International team brought the training and events online and the amazing results they saw. Watch the video

UPCOMING GLOBAL EXCHANGES

If you want to impact a country, you must first reach its leaders! The goal of this Global Exchange. Working together with the local leaders of Guatemala City to establish a sustainable platform to connect marketplace leaders is a wonderful opportunity! As a member of this team you will be involved in dinner parties, sector outreaches, business events and one-on-one interactions with Guatemalan leaders to impact their city.

Guatemala City serves as the economic, governmental and cultural center of the country of Guatemala. The city is also Guatemala’s main transportation hub with its international airport and the main point for most important highways of the country. In addition to a wide variety of restaurants, hotels and shops, Guatemala City has a modern metro transport system, is home to many art galleries, theaters and many other cultural attractions.

As a team member you will receive our best training to develop your personal faith story and improve your skills as a speaker. You will also have opportunities to share ideas with other Canadian leaders and your professional experience with local leaders. This opportunity is designed to increase your leadership confidence, build relationships with leaders in Guatemala and Canada, and to inspire you to make a difference back in your own city. We hope that you will join us in Guatemala City for this life changing experience.

PAST GLOBAL EXCHANGES

Asuncion is one of the oldest cities in South America. The “Mother of Cities” was founded in 1537. The friendly Paraguayan capital has long been a centre of music, poetry and the arts, but only in recent years has Asunción been able to escape its long history of rule by dictators.

In October 2018 we returned to our most visited international city, Medellín Colombia. Medellín is the second-largest city in Colombia, after Bogotá, and is known for its beautiful, temperate weather. For us, the weather is just a bonus compared to working with the amazing local team that loves Jesus, their city and the people in it.
