Linda Cruse

Humanitarian Aid Worker

Linda Cruse

Said by Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson to be able to make the impossible possible, motivational speaker Linda Cruse is described on her own website as “the ultimate humanitarian aid worker hell bent on changing the world forever”.

Focusing on managing the aftermath of disasters around the world – such as typhoons in the Philippines, earthquakes in Pakistan or tsunamis in Asia – Linda is also a social entrepreneur and author. Her book Marmalade and Machine Guns details all her adventures and humanitarian work and she is currently senior fellow and entrepreneur in residence in the College of Business and Law at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand.

The founder of Be The Change: Business Leaders On The Frontline, motivational speaker Linda believes in giving people a helping hand rather than a hand-out, so she specialises in developing local businesses, creating genuine employment opportunities and ensuring the highest possible standards in education and health.

Although she is sometimes a thorn in the side of politicians and business leaders, Linda Cruse breaks through seemingly intractable situations to achieve success for stricken people where others may have failed.

Among the individuals who respect Linda’s efforts and results are Prince Charles and the Dalai Lama as well as such organisations as the World Bank, the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, Virgin Unite and The Prince of Wales International Business Leaders Forum.
