Linda Cruse | Race 4 Good Spring 2017
Linda Cruse , the Global Humanitarian, who dedicates her life assisting in some of the world's most catastrophic natural disasters such as the Asian tsunami, the Pakistani earthquake, two Philippine super typhoons and currently the aftermath of the Nepal earthquake, conflict zones, high mountain nomadic areas and refugee camps, as well as aiding challenged communities worldwide.
Having been described as a cross between Florence Nightingale and Indiana Jones, Linda Cruse is the ultimate humanitarian aid worker intent on changing the world forever. She does this by way of a hand-up, not a hand-out philosophy while engaging not just the money from the private sector, but more importantly their experience, knowledge and wisdom to help solve the most challenging of problems that face these areas in need.
Linda has worked side by side with some of the worlds' most influential figures including HH The Dalai Lama, HRH Prince Charles and Sir Richard Branson and companies including Nestle, Cadburys, Thai Beverage, KPMG, Manpower, Merrill Lynch, Deloitte, GSK, Continental Airlines, Wyeth, Abbott, Allied Dunbar and Hasbro. Linda has also worked alongside foundations such as The Prince of Wales International Business Leaders Forum, United Nations High Commission for Refugees, Virgin Unite, the World Bank and numerous local grass roots NGOs.
GLOBAL RACE 4 GOOD . Race 4 Good is a 21 day challenge comprised of 5 teams of 10 (5 Business Leaders & 5 College Students) who are given a 3 week deadline with a $5,000 virtual budget to combine their entrepreneurial skills, business acumen, intelligence & innovation of the mature business brain with the passionate un-programmed brain of youth.
