Lyndon Rego is the former Global Director of Leadership Beyond Boundaries. His work focused on extending leadership development to new populations and through new platforms, business models, and partnerships. CCL’s Leadership Beyond Boundaries effort, which spans some 20 countries (www.leadbeyond.org), is focused on making leadership development more affordable and accessible across the world. The LBB initiative has created new solutions for emerging markets and underserved populations, spanning local government, small business entrepreneurs, social entrepreneurs, NGO leaders, grassroots women and youth. Specific initiatives have focused on developing new platforms for leadership development such as toolkits and train-the-trainer programs, and leveraging scalable technologies such as mobile phones, iTunes, and Second Life. In his faculty role, Lyndon delivered leadership development, innovation, and train-the-trainer programs in the U.S., Africa, and Asia for audiences ranging from corporate and social sector leaders to rural communities and underserved youth.
Prior to joining the Center in 2002, Lyndon was Director of Marketing for Lipman Hearne, a marketing/communications consulting firm serving education and nonprofit institutions, Assistant Director of Marketplace: Handwork of India, a social enterprise that supports marginalized populations in India, and a public relations professional for a Charleston-based marketing firm.
