• What is Global Thinkers Forum?

The Global Thinkers Forum (GTF) is a global platform that brings together a diverse network of thought leaders creating meaningful conversations around global challenges and trends. GTF’s mission focuses on three areas: fostering accountability in leadership, promote women’s empowerment and create opportunities for young people to develop. GTF is also a bridge-builder, and an organization that promotes public-private sector partnerships and opens conduits for collaboration and stakeholder engagement. The Forum is London-based and was incubated at Oxford University’s Said Business School in 2011.  It has been created with the vision to help our societies and leaders navigate a very complex world.

  • What are the mission and vision of GTF?

Global Thinkers Forum mission is to effect positive change through collaboration, accountable leadership and strategic thinking around some of the world’s key challenges. Women are at the heart of these issues and so is youth, around which we create exciting initiatives and dynamic discussions. GTF’s vision is to become the global organisation that is respected and sought after for answers to world’s key challenges.

  • What are the values of GTF?

Our values are at the core of our organisation and serve as a compass to everything we do.

  • What do you achieve with the GTF gatherings?

Positive change, development, progress, generation of new ideas, dissemination of fresh knowledge, create a new generation of competent leaders. Over our first annual event that took place in Amman under the Patronage of Queen Rania Al Abdullah, we promoted Women Leaders in MENA, we supported entrepreneurship, talent and excellence in the MENA region. At GTF we believe that there is an urgent need for inspiring, pioneering women Entrepreneurs, women in Business and women in the Media, who will act as role models and will positively impact societies by creating new excellence standards in Leadership & Governance. Global Thinkers Forum is identifying and celebrating the leadership of the future, the new leadership needed to lead our World through the 21st century.

  • Why did you select Amman for the inaugural GTF event?

In 2011 brought a series of social uprisings and political change in the Arab world. This was a turning point for the MENA region and many preconceived ideas have been changing across Politics, Governance, Business, Society. We strongly believe that extensive women’s participation is a necessary imperative for our world and the creation of just societies. GTF focuses on the role of the modern woman, not only in the MENA region but also globally. But we know that there is a growing number of women leaders in the MENA today. And we wanted to look for, support and promote capable, success-orientated, pioneering women. We have received the utmost honour to be embraced by Her Majesty Queen Rania as well as HRH Princess Rym Ali and HRH Princess Sumaya bint El Hassan, who have joined our mission and actively support GTF.
