We invite you to explore our work and join our network. Together we will achieve positive change on a global scale, one step at a time. One person at a time.

The Global Thinkers Forum was launched in 2012 in Amman, Jordan, under the patronage of Her Majesty Queen Rania. Within eight years we have hosted events in ten countries (UK, Jordan, Turkey, Greece, UAE, Saudi Arabia, USA, Pakistan, South Africa, Lebanon).

Our Advisory Board Members are decision makers from more than twenty countries.

We have hosted 45 events, six GTF Awards Ceremonies and given 53 Awards for Excellence. We have convened more than 300 world-class speakers and over 3,200 participants from 70 countries have attended, learned, networked.

We have published seven annual publications. We launched two mentoring programmes, Athena for women and Telemachus for young people. Our Mentors and our Mentees come from more than 45 countries. We have empowered through our workshops and public events more than 700 young professionals and entrepreneurs. We have partnered with more than 100 global brands and organisations. In 2018, we launched Athena40, an initiative which focuses on strengthening the role of women worldwide, and nurturing female leadership creating opportunities for women to be recognised, access new networks, knowledge and partnerships.

Together we can achieve so much more.
