UPCOMING GLOBAL EXCHANGES

If you want to impact a country, you must first reach its leaders! This is the goal of the Global Exchange to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Working together with the local leaders in Santo Domingo we hope to establish a sustainable platform to connect marketplace leaders! As a member of this team you will be involved in dinner parties, sector outreaches, business events and one-on-one interactions with Dominican Republic leaders to impact their cities and country.

Santo Domingo is the capital and largest city of the Dominican Republic and the largest metropolitan area in the Caribbean by population. The city is the cultural, financial, political, commercial and industrial center of the Dominican Republic. Santo Domingo also serves as the chief seaport of the country. A key element that has helped the city grow and compete globally is the telecommunications infrastructure and a sizable bilingual population that speaks English. Santo Domingo has areas of high development and a thriving middle class that contrasts with significant pockets of poverty that remain as challenges for the future.

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 the Dominican Republic and Canada, and to inspire you to make a difference back in your own city. We hope that you will join us in Santo Domingo for this life changing experience.

If you want to impact a country, you must first inspire its leaders. The goal of this Global Exchange is to identify leaders who share our passion to inspire their city and their nation, provide training and establish the foundation for LeaderImpact in the subregion of Urabá. As a member of this team you will be involved in casting this vision and participating in a LeaderImpact Forum Event as well as dinners with local Christian marketplace leaders. There you will have the opportunity to share your personal faith story and experience as part of LeaderImpact.

Colombia is one of the world’s seventeen megadiverse countries; it has the second-highest level of biodiversity in the world. Its territory encompasses the Amazon rainforest, highlands, grasslands and deserts. It is the only country in South America with coastlines (and islands) along both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Colombia is also the largest Spanish-speaking country in South America. Apartadó is a town located near the Atlantic Ocean in the Gulf of Urabá, a subregion in the Colombia Department of Antioquia. “Apartadó” means “river of plantains” in the local Indian language. The economy here is based on bananas, plantain, corn, cassava, cocoa, wood and livestock. Because it is near the Caribbean Sea and the center of the country, the government is encouraging industrialization in this region.

This opportunity is designed to increase your leadership confidence, build relationships with leaders in Colombia and Canada, and to inspire you to make a difference back in your own city. We hope that you will join us in Apartadó for this life changing experience.

Cartagena is currently one of the most heavily frequented tourist destinations in Colombia.

It is the second-largest city in the Caribbean region with a population of about 920,000. Industry, tourism, and commerce make up the main economic activities in Cartagena. As a former Spanish colony, Cartagena holds an important historical value for world exploration and preservation of heritage. The city of Cartagena is modern with sky-rises and hotels lining the beachfront but within its center is a walled Heritage Site made up of stunning Spanish Colonial architecture. Here you can find various churches and cathedrals, traditional musicians and dancers, and a beautiful representation of the city’s rich cultures.
