Frequently Asked Questions


who should attend the gls?

The GLS is where anyone who wants to grow their influence and impact can access world-class leadership training within their local community. It’s a powerful resource for those looking to build leadership skills and connect with other leaders in their community. Whether you’re in ministry, academia, marketplace, or a not-for-profit, the GLS offers ideas, tools, and inspiration that will raise your leadership capacity.


What is your refund policy?

Refunds for individual tickets will be issued up to 7 days before the event and are subject to a $45 cancellation fee. No refunds will be provided if the registered pass has already been accessed through the streaming platform.

Cancelling an In-Conference Promotion Purchase
(Free Emerging Leader Ticket with Pre-Order Purchase)

An Emerging Leader ticket requires activation by adding the name of the emerging leader to the free ticket. This must be completed by 07/15/2024. Any tickets that are not activated will be cancelled on this date. Free Emerging Leader tickets are for in-person only and cannot be transferred to an online event.

If you request to cancel your in-conference incentive, your free Emerging Leader Ticket will be cancelled in addition to the $45 cancellation charge. You may transfer your in-conference ticket to another person instead of cancelling.

Can one online ticket be shared between my colleagues at work?

One ticket purchase is required for each member of a team participating in the GLS, whether online or in-person. If you choose to have multiple colleagues gather to view the GLS Online Experience together, please purchase a ticket for each person. 

Thanks for playing fair. Our goal is to provide world-class leadership development for you and your team at a reasonable price. We believe that if everyone follows the same rules and pays their share, we can make this resource available to all Canadians at a low rate for years to come.

How can I host the GLS for my region?

Do you have a missional focus in your organization or church that desires to see values-based leadership grow in your community? We’d love to have you consider joining the network and the Canadian GLS Hosting Team.

The heartbeat of the Global Leadership Network is to convene leaders for personal, organizational, and community transformation.  Catalytic gatherings like the Global Leadership Summit are a starting point for connection and shared mission in your community.  Building this gathering into the annual rhythm of your region helps build relationships and grow momentum with impactful partners and leaders.
