Global Leadership Symposium
an immersive training designed for the next generation of world leaders to expand their worldview, examine the foundations of sound governance and economics, and learn how to partner with God in business using principles of business excellence.
Revolutions, new governments, tremulous economies, and shifting geopolitical alliances are creating times of uncertainty and unprecedented change. However, although the world is moving into uncharted territories, there has never been more opportunity for every nation to thrive.
1. Do you long to take part in shaping the future?
2. Do you have a passion to influence national and global issues?
3. Do you desire to establish creative solutions for sound governance and thriving economics in your country?
4. Are you called to be a modern-day Joseph, Daniel or Esther?
Situated in the heart of the historic city of Prague, the GLOBAL LEADERSHIP SYMPOSIUM challenges participants to develop a carefully considered and solid Biblical worldview while, simultaneously, immersing them in a vibrant learning culture that examines the dynamics of real-world challenges through formal instruction, dialogue, and practical case studies.
The symposium participants, a cohort of carefully selected, emerging leaders, will engage with and learn from established leaders and practitioners who are at the forefront of research, thought leadership, and strategic action in national and global arenas. They will hone the spiritual and cultural agility necessary to become effective influencers in the governance, business, and civil society of today’s increasingly complex, international system.
Immersed in this synergistic exchange among world-class speakers, subject-matter experts, and mentors, participants will enrich and expand their networks to include many other “Josephs and Daniels” —emerging and established— in diverse realms of influence around the world.
The GLS was a game changer for me. It shifted my mindset in so many ways. I had the opportunity to be exposed to concepts that have equipped me to make an impact on both the local and national level. The immersive style of the symposium stretched my capacity and preconceived ideas on many things. I needed strategic alignment between the gaps I saw around me and my role in providing critical solutions. This incredible experience is for anyone looking to get ahead of the curve and become the leader they were always meant to be.
The GLS is the best leadership training that could happen to me. Not only have I connected dots between politics, economics and business but also gained deeper understanding of the importance to understand nations history, their identity and possible future.
There were daily highlights as well as impactful aha-moments for me. Each day we had high-level teachers and combined it with practical activities. Learning the in-depth concept on how the history plays into the current governance was one of the most mind-blowing aha-moments for me. This goes along with the inside knowledge from speakers who are themselves successful global leaders in business and politics and others who are advisors to influential leaders around the world. Most importantly for me, I formed international and inter-cultural friendships and partnerships.
The main sense I had throughout the Global Leadership symposium was that this was IT – a step in the right direction. The symposium was an incredibly efficient growth accelerator of God, allowing me to encounter, process and move on from several issues that otherwise would have taken me months if not years to process. This was due to the thought provoking teaching, the inspiring speakers, and the incredible group of people I was surrounded with every day. I don’t know when I will ever have the chance to spend so much time discussing God’s will for business, economy, politics and whatever else with such a focused, diverse and wise group of people.
The Symposium was like nothing I’ve experienced before. Tomorrow’s leaders are shaped not only by what they learn, but by what they live and by who they grow with. The Symposium offered a powerful God-centered model for leadership, truly unique in its kind. I loved the dynamic experiential learning and fully immersive environment, exchanging throughout with other emerging Christ-centered leaders. Beyond offering a world-class foundation for transformative leadership, this Symposium for me, catalyzed a new learning journey and new lifelong connections which I will benefit from for years to come.
GLS transformed my life. I was challenged in the best ways, which resulted in personal and professional growth. For me, I was in a transition period and about to launch into a new role. After attending, I was equipped, empowered and ready to step into a new level of leadership. More than anything though is the community you will create for life. I now have a new global family of emerging world leaders. The quality of speakers, teachers and training is superb and you get a chance to put it into action. I cannot recommend this program enough.
GLS was a great event with amazing people from all over the world - speakers as well as participants. For a long time, I had the desire to know more about what makes nations economically thrive on a long term, the role of politics how I could distribute to that. GLS provided a lot of new and exciting approaches to this question, and I got a lot of inspiration and new ideas. Along with lively discussions and talks during and after the lessons, I realized that a few but determined people acting in unity are enough to change the world. At least my life is not the same after that. I am happy to be part of a wonderful international alumni network which became part of my family. I encourage everyone who wants to change the world to attend GLS and also become part of the family.
The Global Leadership Symposium 2018 in Prague was an eye opening experience for me. The quality and experience of invited speakers ignited even greater hunger in me for personal development, and for awareness of worldwide happenings, mainly in the political and economical area.
The expertise and personal stories of the speakers inspired me to take action in my own sphere of influence: first to be more innovative and bold, and secondly to expand it.
I totally recommend the Global Leadership Symposium to anyone who who is developing or building something in his or her life, and who desires to make an impact.
If you are in transition and would like to move to the next level, then I would definitely recommend the Global Leadership Symposium (GLS). When we need to move on in life, sometimes it is helpful to get out of our familiar routines and gain a new perspective. This is how the GLS in Prague impacted me. My thinking was changed from a church-centered perspective to a kingdom-centered one. I also received confirmation and encouragement about my God-given purpose.
I also recommend the GLS to those who are pursuing their calling in business or politics, and to coaches, consultants and mentors who are like the Josephs and Daniels for today´s world. You will be equipped and empowered not just by being at the feet of world-class teachers, but also by meeting your “tribe“. It was a life-changing experience to be intensively immersed in an environment of students with an excellent spirit. We developed friendships among attendees from 10 nationalities. To this day, many of us are actively in touch, supporting each other. If anybody feels that this is something they need, I would recommend to put your energy into it, plan ahead and save up money! It is totally worth it!
We have carefully designed our program with select speakers who not only possess a cutting-edge understanding of current international and global affairs, but who are also active in creating solutions to challenges that we face in our world today.

Are you an emerging leader who desires to make positive large-scale impact?
If so, I’m sure it has occurred to you that you might need to think a bit more systematically and deeply about how those values relate to national and even global systems and structures.
But have you considered that you might need to spend time thinking about and organising yourself to be able to apply your values within systems and structures that are often indifferent or even hostile?
More ambitiously, have you thought what strategies and roles might be appropriate for you in bringing those systems and structures into harmony with humane values?
The Global Leadership Symposium provides an excellent opportunity to do all this in a community of other emerging leaders like yourself, with input from experienced and distinguished trailblazers.
