Meet Our Founder and CEO – Brenda McGuire

Brenda McGuire is a #1 Best-Selling Author, an Award Winning Speaker and Trainer, and a Global Business and Travel Expert.

But she’s more than that. In knowing her, you’ll see why your success matters and how deeply she understands the challenges you face in the workplace and as an individual traveler…. and why she created WorldWideConnect.

This small town, Iowa girl followed her dreams to experience the world with all its amazing opportunities and unique challenges … and then, she transformed those experiences and cross-cultural connections into ways to help others find success and reach their travel and global business goals.

During more than 25 years of international experience, including living in 6 countries and traveling to over 80, Brenda successfully trained thousands of individuals and companies in more than 50 countries how to effectively operate across borders despite cultural, time zone, and language barriers.

 As the former Director of Global Workforce Development for a Fortune 500 company, she understands the need to prepare individuals and organizations to succeed and lead in a competitive global business environment.

Brenda’s passion for people and building their international success, both on a personal and professional level, led her to create WorldWide Connect in 2007 and in 2012, launch a second, successful international business, Global Gals, which educates, inspires and empowers women to achieve their travel goals and dreams personally and professionally.
