Throughout the course of history there have been many legendary individuals who have effected positive change through their strong leadership traits. We have often witnessed the difference one person can make to change the world for the better. John Adams (the 6th president of the US) once said that “ if your actions inspire others to dream more, do more and become more, then you are a great leader”.

And now, perhaps more than ever before, our world needs great leaders.

The good news is that this year the Global Leadership Summit - the world’s largest leadership conference - will be screened in Knysna. The Global Leadership Summit started in 1995 with 2300 attendees in one venue. It has since grown to attract 305 000 global leaders attending in 675 sites, in 125 countries and is translated into 59 different languages. This two day high-definition telecast event will take place at the Knysna Vineyard on the 21st and 22nd of October 2016. This year some 12 000 leaders from the business sector, churches, government and NGO’s will attend the event at 20 different sites across South Africa.

While some may be born with inherent leadership qualities, many need to learn what it takes to be a great leader. It takes forward thinking people from all sectors of society to help others navigate this fast-paced world. So whether you are a mother, a teacher, a pastor, a CEO or a head of an NGO, this conference will help you gain the tools necessary to lead and inspire others effectively.

The faculty of speakers this year includes John Maxwell, a big name in leadership seminars, Dr Travis Bradberry, expert and author of the book Emotional Intelligence. He discusses topics such as self awareness, self management, social awareness and relationship management in his talk. Another speaker is well-known Melinda Ann Gates, businesswoman,philanthropist and co-founder of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Other guest speakers include Erin Meyer (Cultural Mapping), Patrick Lencioni (Business consultant), Jossy Chacko (Pastor) as well as many others.
