Take a week out to rest, refresh and replenish
No matter where you lead, the Global Leadership Summit is a world-class experience designed to help you get better and embrace your grander vision—the reason God called you to lead.
Feedback from GLS Chicago 2016
“The GLS offered me practical principles of leadership that powerfully combine simplicity and clarity with wisdom and insight. What made it even more powerful is that the principles come from leaders who lead across the world and in a diverse range of settings and cultures.”
Ven John Kiddle, Archdeacon of Wandsworth
“Having just returned from the GLS at Willow Creek, I can confidently affirm that year on year I find the whole experience of this opportunity both challenging and affirming. This year’s conference was no exception. A faculty of great speakers, all at the top of their game, offered some rich material for my team to work on now we are back home. I unhesitatingly and strongly urge you to take your team to one of the GLS conferences in the UK. You will not regret it!”
Bishop Mike Hill, Diocese of Bristol
“As always, the GLS 2016 delivered high quality content. Patrick Lencioni was on great form on team members, Erin Meyer was fascinating on cross-cultural communication while Chris McChesney and Alan Mullaly brought great practical wisdom from the business world. A great two days with plenty of food for thought!”
The Rev Canon David Richards, St Paul’s and St George’s Church, Edinburgh
“The 2016 GLS was as good as any I have previously attended and continues to provide me with a rich source of practical ideas for my business leadership. It remains the one “must-do” entry in my diary each year.”
Steve Kent, Marketing & Business Development Director – Santa Maria Foodservice
