2023 Overall Impact Entrepreneur of the year

“The funding is going to just make it real, the packs are going to go out. I had one goal and that was to get the Global Anthem packs into the hands of support workers, free of charge. That’s going to happen now.”

Richard Holmes is the founder of Global Anthem. His impact driven business tackles the traumatic and educationally disruptive uprooting of refugees, migrants and asylum seekers and the unmet basic need to communicate across multiple languages, countries and boundaries at both a humanitarian and official level. Global Anthem offers an alternative and augmentative communication system developed to bridge this gap utilising natural and intuitive hand gestures and the development of easy-to-use flashcards with a non-specific gender and race illustration that can be used across any language or culture.
