#VGLForum Goes Virtual

What does successful leadership in this era of unpredictability and uncertainty look like? What do we need to change not only to keep up with transformation, but to create it?

The VGL Forum creates an open space online to discuss leadership issues with experts and leading managers, to exchange solutions and to enhance leadership skills across industries.

Most VGL Forum begin with a 15-minute presentation per speaker, and then lead into an interactive Q&A session with the audience.

Attending a VGL Forum is free.

Please read the VGL community guidelines.

My best collective zoom experience so far. The conference on Positive Leadership with the Vienna Global Leaders network last week was such an energizing experience. With people attending from all over the world. Tremendous organization speakers and format. The content keeps resonating in me.

Verónica De la Fuente
Connector and Catalyst for Intercultural Relations

I attended this amazing event on Positive Leadership! Why amazing? First the content, excellent topic, very good experts and also, practical experiences and their implementation in organizations, which makes it very reliable. Another fantastic aspect is the workshop model, extremely interactive and participative, with the possibility of reflecting and sharing with the rest of the participants, but also in an energizing and convivial atmosphere. After so many webinars and online workshop, this one more than tired me, it energized me.
