eNewsletter January 2012

Like most people, we find January to be a great time to reflect on where we're heading next. As we look ahead to 2012, we are heartened by the young people we meet, who are just setting out in pursuit of their dreams. Young people like our "Next Generation Leaders," who you can read about in this issue; and the schoolchildren in Tanzania who have inspired so many of you to give back, both through Grand Circle Foundation and on your own. As always, we are humbled by your generosity and thank you for helping us give the gift of hope around the world.

Recognizing Gutsy Leaders

We believe that true leadership can come from anywhere—from boardrooms to classrooms, from City Hall to city streets. It takes guts to change the world … and our leaders are helping to do so, each in their own unique way.


Roger Clulow

Regional General Manager, Africa, Grand Circle Corporation
The person in charge of Grand Circle operations in Africa didn't know what he wanted to do in life, so he decided to try out a career in travel. That was 20 years ago, and today, not only is he a gutsy leader professionally, he is also the driving force behind the region's community service efforts.
