What We Do

GLF exists to support political leadership and good governance around the world by making available the experience of former leaders to today’s national leaders.

These former leaders – who make up the “GLF Membership” – contribute to the work of GLF as private individuals, motivated by a desire to help current leaders tackle challenges that they themselves once faced.

GLF’s engagement with leaders is confidential. GLF Members work discreetly and out of the spotlight, offering private, frank pro bono advice on specific issues of concern to Heads of Government and on general governance issues.  These issues of concern are decided by the Head of Government, with GLF Members having no agenda beyond giving impartial advice, on a peer-to-peer basis, drawing on their own personal experience.
