Global Membership
Global Network
Global Reach



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 on any issues of concern to them.


GLF is a not-for-profit foundation, registered in Switzerland and is independent of any government or corporate interest.
