“We have attended GLS for the last few years and have always found it to be one of the best conferences for equipping leaders, be they in the church, or in business, or other places of influence.
For this reason we have invited widely and a growing number of people have begun attending with us along with our core leadership team. GLS draws upon a wide range of speakers with varying perspectives on different skills required to lead well in today’s climate. Craig Groeschel, Carla Harris and Simon Sinek were particularly inspiring this year. All credit to the GLS team who have continued to provide the best equipping tracks for such a wide reach of leadership, and have done so despite the turmoil of recent events affecting the organisation. Blessings on them!”

“In life, I have two main spheres: voluntary at church, as a leader in kids’ ministry, and salaried at work, as manager of a multinational software development team. The Global Leadership Summit caters excellently for both. Each year, I gain inspiration, and ideas that I can bring into play at both church and work. Each year, my teams in both locations benefit. I can’t wait to see the growth and development that happens over this coming year as a direct result of attending GLS 2018, and look forward to attending in 2019.”

“Thanks for putting on the GLS. My wife and I, accompanied by one of our daughters attended the event in Bristol. Looking at the package as a whole we were mightily blessed by the majority of speakers (there are always one or two who fail to push the right buttons). We went away challenged and invigorated and can see that our walk with the LORD will be different as a result.”

“I attended the GLS at Cheltenham. I was so very pleased that I did. My husband works in finance and I always think of the Summit as being more suitable for him. I work as a Christian Counsellor and actually it was just as relevant to me. There were many thought provoking moments and much insight to be gathered. Much reassurance given about our mistakes being learning curves and opportunities for growth. Particularly humbling to hear about the risks taken by Pastors in countries where this sort of thing is not encouraged. We are so fortunate. A reminder to not take all that is available for granted. Thank you all for making this teaching so accessible to all.”

“Probably the best ever – in the dozen I have attended – in terms of overall standard across all speakers.”

“Every year I am challenged to get better as a leader. Each talk produced some challenging take-away’s that will help the Team and myself to get better for God’s Kingdoms sake!!!”
