What is the Global Leadership Summit?

The Global Leadership Summit is a life-changing event. This amazing 2-day leadership conference features fresh, actionable content delivered by a world-class faculty. The GLS impacts 405,000+ leaders across 500+ U.S. Premier Host Sites in 135 countries, providing vision, inspiration, and countless practical skills you can put to work Monday morning. For the 2020 Summit, St. John the Divine will bring people together virtually by hosting an enhanced, interactive live web streaming experience, since we are unable to have a large, in-person gathering. This new GLS Online Experience allows you to attend the Summit live with other leaders, directly on your preferred device, from anywhere. Plus, you’ll automatically get 7 Days of Video-on-Demand to replay the Summit talks on your device.
