Actionable LEADERSHIP insights and INSPIRATION!

Whether you’re a business leader, CEO, pastor, teacher, nurse, student, artist, parent, doctor, volunteer, entrepreneur, or simply finding your place, you have influence. Every day you impact those around you through your influence—for better or worse, in both big and small ways. During a season that may have depleted your energy, stunted your growth or left you in the dark, it’s time to rediscover a new hope for your future in order to amplify the positive difference you can make.

Your leadership matters. When you invest in developing your leadership skills, you also give back to everyone around you. You strengthen your relationships, build trust in your team, innovate toward a better future and face challenges head-on with fresh perspective—not only do you thrive, but your family thrives, your business thrives, your church thrives and your community thrives.

For more than 25 years, The Global Leadership Summit has delivered leadership insights with attendees reporting positive outcomes. (based on independent research by Excellence in Giving).

What ATTENDEES in the MiddleEast are saying

Each year the GLS is an infusion of fresh ideas, actionable concepts, leadership principles and heartfelt inspiration. Here’s why leaders prioritise the GLS.

Joel Indrupathi

“The stories, thoughts, insights, principles and simple practical applications we get to hear at the GLS make us better individuals. And then, becoming better leaders is but a natural and obvious advancement. Attending GLS makes all of us at our organization revitalized and re-energized as a team..”

Juan Vega

“GLS is a great opportunity to understand better how you can influence positively in others life, both personally and professionally. Also gives you actionable inputs to grow your leadership and people management skills. Highly recommended!.”

Dr. Jaison Mathai

“I look forward to GLS every time because I have been inspired and challenged each time I have attended the GLS. It’s a time to refresh, focus, recharge and at the same time to allow my vision to be enlarged.”

Lijo Joy Mathew

“I have been impacted and over the years become a better leader because of the tools & applications Ive received through GLS. They provide inspiring leadership stories and great frameworks to become a better leader”

Ella Cole

“I love that GLS brings together some of the world’s inspiring and influential thought leaders who generously share their rich stories and experiences that anyone could learn a lot from, whether you’re an entrepreneur or CEO. It’s truly worth my time and investment each year..”

Szilvia Olah

“My favorite event of the year. The summit deploys a great variety of leadership approaches and there is something for everyone. But what I truly enjoy is that it makes you think and question your own leadership style and the way you manage people. Do you want to experience cognitive dissonance? Attend the summit! I have bought few Team Editions back to my colleagues and they absolutely loved them..”

“My first GLS was a memorable experience. It challenged me to relentlessly pursue and live out my calling actively on a daily basis. GLS helps reinforce deep truths that are valuable regardless of life or societal status. We are all called to influence and lead. We are all a work in progress, and should pursue excellence by desiring to serve at our best capacity and potential. I encourage you to attend the next Summit and challenge yourself to expanding your global perspective as one who has so much untapped potential waiting to be explored.”


“Since the launch of GLS in Dubai, we have encouraged our Life Group Leaders to attend the summit. We have seen an improvement in their confidence as they lead their groups. Some have even come out of their comfort zone and embraced the truth that they have been called by God to lead. They are becoming better leaders in their communities.”
