Global Leadership Forums

Dynamic events at the United Nations, World Bank, National Press Club and other locations engaging business leaders, investors, university, government and NGO leaders, and partners


Global Leadership Forums are dynamic, curated events customized with partners to highlight critical issues and to launch major initiatives.  Designed collaboratively with stakeholders and global partners,, the program helps to advance the Sustainable Development Goals, build collective impact, and mobilize scalable solutions.


Forums are based on the fact that cross-sector collaboration and collective impact are essential to address today's major challenges. Hence Forums are strategically designed to convene targeted leadership across public-private-nonprofit sectors with a specific action and theme for the program. The model also builds on Michael Porter’s strategies for shared value, cluster development and global competition, as well as global goals, such as the Sustainable Development Goals.
