The Global Leadership Foundation exists to make available, discreetly and in confidence, the experience of former leaders to today’s national leaders.
It does so through its network of Members – former Presidents, Prime Ministers, senior government ministers and other distinguished leaders - drawn together by a desire to give something back to the world.
Working in small teams, in their personal capacity, Members offer private and confidential advice to Heads of Government.
GLF is a not-for-profit foundation, registered in Switzerland and is independent of any government or corporate interest.
