GLS 2017 Chicago Highlights and Feedback


GLS Blue Mountain

This Summit drew closer to the heart of Christian Leadership than any other.

Each year the GLS offers new ways to think about how you lead in whatever situation you are in – whether it’s business or church. I found I was challenged this year by what sort of leader people may consider me to be and I really enjoyed how many excellent women speakers there were.

Some conferences are inspiring and I come away feeling very excited but not always sure what to do! GLS was very inspiring but I also have an action plan. Inspiring, intelligent and instructional.

I thought this was an excellent conference. The input was as challenging as it was terrific. Every year the GLS offers something new and stimulating. After many years of visiting the Summit, it proved yet again to be an unmissable event.

Attending the GLS each year has consistently developed me as a leader and been transformational in my work. The faculty at GLS 2017 was first class and I returned from Willow encouraged, inspired and full of practical ideas with which to improve my own performance and that of my team.

Once again the GLS managed to inspire, encourage and challenge. Wherever and whatever you’re leading there will be something for you, your team and your organisation that will help you become a better leader – don’t miss it!

“Last year I took five experienced strategic leaders from outside the church to the GLS in Gerrards Cross. These senior students of leadership described it as the best leaders conference they had attended. This year I am looking for others to discover the GLS as a treasury for leaders. Join me in this.”

Lee Rayfield, Bishop of Swindon, GLS Chicago 2017
