Why are we adding GLS Online?

In the current global health environment, we know people across the country are going through various phases of reopening and following local health code protocols and guidelines—others may feel uncomfortable attending a large gathering in August, even if their local regions might allow it. But we didn’t want to cancel the event knowing how needed leadership in a time of crisis truly is. So, the team at the Global Leadership Network immediately began working through various contingency plans and delivery models so that we could continue to deliver the leadership insight and inspiration you come to expect at the Summit.

We’re excited to share that the virtual event will be an enhanced online experience. Additionally, our 2020 faculty is on board with us and have expressed how eager they are to share fresh, practical leadership wisdom and encouragement to support you in this difficult season. Learn about the 2020 faculty >>

The new GLS Online Experience allows you to attend the Summit live with other leaders, directly on your preferred device, from anywhere.

Our simplified and reduced pricing plan makes it easy for you to bring others to join you who might otherwise not have the opportunity. Consider this, if you have a team spread out across the country, now you can attend together online! You can also join with friends in a shared virtual environment who would otherwise not be able to attend an event all together.

Don’t get us wrong, we have always preferred our in-person host site gatherings for their hospitable, interactive and relational atmosphere focused on the local community, and are glad that several of our host sites will still be able to host live, in-person events. However, we also recognize there are new opportunities to explore via a virtual platform and are excited about reaching and encouraging people in their leadership in an all new way!

Join us on this new journey!

Global Leadership Summit

The Global Leadership Summit (GLS) is a two-day infusion of actionable leadership insights and inspiration broadcast to hundreds of host sites across the United States every August. In the following months, the GLS is translated, contextualized and hosted by local leadership committees at hundreds of locations across Africa, Asia, Latin America, Europe and the Middle East. This global event convenes a world-class faculty who share their distinct perspectives and expertise, inspiring and equipping people around the world with practical leadership skills that can be applied within their context, wherever they have influence, and used to empower positive transformation where it’s needed most. Attracting an audience that represents various industries, including marketplace, non-profit, healthcare, education, government, ministry and corrections, the GLS has become a unique platform, unlike any other, bringing people together to not only empower better leadership within the organizations they represent, but in a growing number of cases around the world, this event also acts as a catalyst for organic local movements initiating systemic, city-wide change. What started as a single event back in 1990’s, the GLS has grown to attract tens of thousands of people today.

    Hello, I purchased a ticket for the 2020 GLS summit, but was not able to view all the speakers. I did also purchase a GLS summit ticket for 2021 which included ‘on demand’. Will I be able to access the 2020 speakers through that? thank you.
