The 1990spresented the outset of Global Vision and the onset of the free-trade based global marketplace. During that time, these first generation LTR trekkers became the traders that Canada, a trading nation, lacked. These graduates - some having paved a path in foreign lands - are comfortable in this changing world of work. Their careers, which continue to trend upwards, contribute to Canada’s emergence as a global player in a very competitive, crowded marketplace. They learned from so many others at Global Vision; the organization that made their real-life learning experiences possible and gave them the competitive advantage which was the start of their own career trajectories.

 

Now these grads are ready to give back! They want to pay it forward so others can have the same life changing, less traveled roadexperiences that allowed them to excel on the global stage. Global Vision Ambassadors (GVAs) showcased below span across Canada and the world and are available to assist and mentor YOU as you embark on your very own Global Vision journey. Whether you are looking for mentorship, help building a local network, advice, or just a fellow GV friend- they are ready to help and are just a phone call away!  


A handcrafted pin | An incredible honour

“In recognition of the continued commitment to empower the next generation of global leaders and further realize our shared vision for Canada and the world.”

On June 7th 2016, Global Vision (GV) was hosted by Deputy Speaker Bruce Stanton in the private Chambers of the Speaker of the House of Commons for the closing reception of the National Youth Ambassador Caucus (NYAC). During the reception, surrounded by #NYAC2016 Ambassadors, Members of Parliament, and government and business leaders, President & Founder of Global Vision Terry Clifford announced the inaugural Global Vision Ambassadors (GVA) and awarded them with the GVA pin. Handcrafted by Ms. Savannah Villasenor Shaw, each pin is unique and reflects the individual personalities and attributes of the recipient; it is an emblem to be worn with pride as it reflects the respect and admiration Global Vision and the Canadians they assist have for the wearer. 

Since Global Vision’s founding 25 years ago, Terry Clifford, C.M. has graduated over 30,000 Canadian ambassadors and developed global leaders. This honorary symbol identifies the exceptional Global Vision graduates who have been continuously committed to empowering the next generation of global leaders and further it realises their shared vision for Canada and the world.
