IMPROVED WORK QUALITY

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).

A Glimpse of our past events

What attendees are saying...

We believe that everyone has the capacity to lead—because Everyone Has Influence. Whether you’re an executive, a student, a parent, or a community leader, your leadership matters! Invest in developing your leadership skills at the GLS.

Most of the content was first time listening to it. Very enlightening. Hearing from God-fearing people who have impacted and inspired many was very encouraging. Time to discover the leader in me!

- Hillary L, Attendee, Malaysia

As a first-time Summit attendee, I think one of the most impactful takeaway was realizing that I AM a leader, period. That I CAN and SHOULD start cultivating authentic and effective leadership qualities from this moment onward, because there's simply no such thing as learning how to be a leader only when I obtain a 'leader' title. Secondly and importantly, most leadership "trainings" often focus on generic principles and practical ways to lead one's team, based on a corporate/ career-based setting. But this Summit has opened up my eyes to see leadership in every aspect of my life (family, ministry, even one's PERSONAL leadership), and apply leadership qualities in a flexible, multifaceted way.

- Rachel G, attendee, Malaysia

Many pastoral leaders and many business leaders came to participate. Everyone felt that they had gained a lot. The pastoral care of their church and the management of the entire enterprise brought many new ideas.

- Xia Zhongjian, Taiwan Gospel Advancement Association, Malaysia

Learning never stops, and I have been so thankful to be able to allocate 2 days to join in Global Leadership Summit in KL.
Nuggets of wisdom pouring out of very experienced and distinguished leaders like Roshan Thiran, Datuk Seri Idris Jala on transformational leadership in 6 steps, Henry Kaestner, Daniel Pink with the 4 categories of regrets and the actions to remedy it, and Sahar Hashemi OBE on knowing 100% of you in being an entrepreneur. So blessed with so much more learning.

- Jasmine N.
