The Global Leadership Summit on August 5-6, 2021 is not only designed for those who lead businesses or organizations, but it is also designed to equip and encourage aspiring young leaders who desire to make a difference in the world.

In fact, the Summit has encouraged many emerging leaders dreaming about making the world a better place, not just in the future, but right now starting in their families, schools and neighborhoods.

“The first time I went to The Global Leadership Summit, I was in high school. My youth pastor, who had been attending the Summit for a number of years, decided to bring a couple of students who were leading small groups and participating in our youth group. I didn’t know why I was invited to the Summit at the time. But looking back, without me knowing it, I realize he was investing in us. The act of simply being invested in had an impact on me as a young student. I thought, Wow, I’m worth the time and energy to build into.” – Peter Kim

“Being invited to the Summit felt like a once in a long while chance… I want to lead other people to success. I want to be a leader that’s caring—someone who says, Hey, you’re struggling? Let me help you. I want to teach others their own leadership skills. I want to lead people to make a positive difference in the world. It’s very easy to make a negative difference in the world, but I want to lead people to make a positive difference.” – Noah Goodall

“It’s easy to go to a leadership conference and write yourself off saying, I don’t fit in because I’m not leading an organization, or I’m only 13. But because I heard that message over and over—everyone has influence—I saw my life in a different way. I realized my life isn’t just about me. If everyone really has influence, leadership development matters, even as a 13-year-old.” – Hannah Gronowski

If everyone really has influence, leadership development matters, even as a 13-year-old.

“I still remember when Craig said, ‘If God has chosen you, then He alone will provide all you need.’ That was my turning-point moment. What can I do when God chooses me? I believe God is never wrong. From that moment on, I no longer doubt God. I am confidently stepping out and trying to believe that under any circumstances I lead, the Lord will provide all the capacity and skills I need.” – Grace Christa

Our youth are our future. And in order to build the future for the better, we need to invest in the next generation of leaders who are and will be the change makers of that future!

The Global Leadership Summit

GLN Staff Writer

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.
