As the largest network of business, government, education, and philanthropic leaders in the world, we seek to facilitate action through public-private-philanthropic partnerships said George Bickerstaff, Co-Founder of The Global Leaders.
Greenwich, CT (PRWEB) February 7, 2010
The inaugural meeting of The Global Leaders, a networking group of influential leaders in business, government, education and philanthropy, will be held at the prestigious Yale Club in New York City on February 9th. There are over 150 business leaders attending the event who have led over 700 companies, with more than $700 billion in annual revenue, $5 trillion in assets and 2.5 million employees. The meeting will also be attended by senior political, education, and philanthropic leaders.
The Global Leaders was started in 2009 to enable people to find and network with their global peers to facilitate business and philanthropic relationships through shared information, knowledge, and insights. Our hope is that the network we build will allow our members and their organizations to achieve their goals and objectives through collaborative wisdom, work, and wealth.
The Global Leaders aims to connect people across the four pillars of business, government, education, and philanthropy through intergroup communication, and one of the primary ways by which we achieve this communication is by providing opportunities, such as this meeting, for members to meet face-to-face, network, and discuss our collective and individual impact.
The Global Leaders has over 16,000 active members in over 150 industries and over 100 countries. Our members lead or have led over 10,000 global companies, with headquarters in over 60 countries that employ more than 28 million people. They have revenue exceeding $7 trillion and assets of over $56 trillion. As a reference, global GDP is $60 trillion.
The Global Leaders is growing at a rate of over 100 leaders per week.
