Global Thinkers Forum (GTF) is a global platform that brings together a diverse network of thought leaders to share their visions of the future, create meaningful conversations around them and effect positive change in the world. GTF’s mission focuses on three areas: accountable leadership, women’s empowerment and youth development. GTF is also a bridge-builder, creating opportunities for knowledge exchange, collaboration, strategic philanthropy and recognition. The Forum is non-profit, London-based and was incubated at Oxford University’s Said Business School in 2011
GTF launched officially in 2012 in Amman, Jordan, under the patronage of Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah and has partnered with some of the world’s top brands, organisations and foundations. It features a prestigious Advisory Board with high-profile thought leaders and decision makers from over 20 countries. GTF organises a wide range of activities including seminars, fora, roundtable discussions, workshops, networking events, mentoring programmes and its Awards for Excellence Ceremony.
As part of the Global Thinkers Mentors, GTF has created two programmes ‘Telemachus’ and ‘Athena’, that aim to add value to young people’s lives and also to the lives of women above the age of 30, through their close interaction with thought leaders and inspiring individuals.
