Summit Impact Empowers Young Women in Vietnam

The ripple effect of what happens through The Global Leadership Summit drives the Global Leadership Network to continue to provide intentionally curated leadership resources and create high-impact events, while convening people globally around a vision for positive transformation.

Each story represents just a few of the thousands of stories that become a reality through a new learning or encouragement discovered at The Global Leadership Summit each year!

Be Inspired!

Here is an example of just one of those stories about Li Thi Hai in Vietnam who was inspired by the words of Dr. Krish Kandiah at The Global Leadership Summit in 2020 to take what she learned to empower young women.

“Our point of view determines whether or not a problem is an obstacle or an opportunity.” – Dr. Krish Kandiah


Our generous Summit audience, driven by a desire to see positive transformation through leadership, makes stories like these possible. In fact, when you give a donation to the Global Leadership Network, you don’t just touch one life—you touch hundreds of thousands of lives through the legacy of these stories.

Donations make it possible for the GLN to translate GLS21 into 55+ languages this season and provide leadership growth opportunities for even more people like Li Thi Hai.

The Global Leadership Summit

GLN Staff Writer

The Global Leadership Summit (GLS) is a two-day infusion of actionable leadership insights and inspiration broadcast to hundreds of host sites across the United States every August. In the following months, the GLS is translated, contextualized and hosted by local leadership committees at hundreds of locations across Africa, Asia, Latin America, Europe and the Middle East. This global event convenes a world-class faculty who share their distinct perspectives and expertise, inspiring and equipping people around the world with practical leadership skills that can be applied within their context, wherever they have influence, and used to empower positive transformation where it’s needed most. Attracting an audience that represents various industries, including marketplace, non-profit, healthcare, education, government, ministry and corrections, the GLS has become a unique platform, unlike any other, bringing people together to not only empower better leadership within the organizations they represent, but in a growing number of cases around the world, this event also acts as a catalyst for organic local movements initiating systemic, city-wide change. What started as a single event back in 1990’s, the GLS has grown to attract tens of thousands of people today.
