Why Attend?

Your influence impacts those around you every day—for better or worse, in both big and small ways. During a season that may have depleted your energy, stunted your growth or left you in the dark, it’s time to rediscover a new hope for your future in order to amplify the positive difference you can make.

Your leadership matters. When you invest in developing your leadership skills, you also give back to everyone around you. You strengthen your relationships, build trust in your team, innovate toward a better future and face challenges head-on with fresh perspective—not only do you thrive, but your family, business, church and community thrives!

For more than 25 years, The Global Leadership Summit has delivered leadership insights with attendees reporting positive outcomes. (based on independent research by Excellence in Giving).

As a leader; there is always space to learn more in an ever changing world. Being exposed to the world class speakers, I learnt to lead from a totally new perspective. My entire team looked forward to the time we spent at the GLS each year. We took it as an opportunity to set out goals and vision for year ahead. There are always pockets within the GLS that give each team member their own revelation, resulting in life changing moments.
Personally I learnt that leadership was not only about caring for your organisation to be successful, but also the development of the people you lead to become confident, healthy and fully equipped team members.

Pauline de KlerkDirector The Mangaliso Fund

The GLS provides an affordable learning experience for business leaders who own small and medium size businesses. It brings world leading faculty in leadership together in one conference addressing relevant leadership struggles in today’s world of work. It is an annual highlight for so many staff members who get practical tools from the best thought leaders.

Hermann du PlessisDirector, Themba Thandeka Leadership Institute

As a ministry leader, I have appreciated the input of GLS year after year after year. The content remains important to my personal development. I especially appreciate that GLS tackles subjects that are relevant to a changing society. GLS is a not negotiable in my calendar.

Jo HoodInternational CEO, Mainly Music

GLS has played an absolutely instrumental part in both my faith and calling. No arena has spoken as clearly to me about Gods cry for Justice and His plan to use you and I to extinguish the darkness on this earth. Add to that some of the best leadership insights and profoundly deep and introspective Holy-Spirit moments and you just cant walk out of the GLS the same way you came in. I'm eternally grateful for the inspirational hope and deep cutting conviction I have come to love at the GLS.

Colin EdmondsDirector, Trulife



Does everyone attending GLS require their own ticket?

Yes. We ask that you honour our request that every person who attends GLS must be an individual ticketholder. This ensures our ongoing viability as a not-for-profit and allows us to continue to offer access to the GLS  at a very affordable price. 

Which speakers will be shown for the GLS in South Africa?

The final speaker line-up for South Africa will be confirmed in August.


Please note that there are 2 versions of the GLS event. A Premier and a Business. The GLS Premier is a blend of inspiration, encouragement, skills transfer and faith.

The GLS Business is focussed on the business speakers.

How do I update each person's details in my group booking?

When you purchased your tickets from Quicket, you received a confirmation/receipt email. On this email is an option to print your ticket with a ticket number & QR code.

On this email there are links to manage and update your registrations. Go to the Quicket website and create a LOGIN with your name and email address then proceed to Your Tickets to update the information. 

Who informs my group?

The Group Leader will receive correspondence which in turn they will communicate to their group. Please be sure to update your ticket info and insert all the ticket holder names and email addresses so they can receive their own tickets for entrance to the GLS.

Are concession rates available?

We have intentionally reduced the ticket price for GLS to enable more people than ever to experience the Summit.

However we offer concession rates for underprivileged and under resourced leaders who still cannot afford the ticket price. Please email us to request concession tickets

Can I cancel my GLS ticket?
