Global Thinkers Forum (GTF) is a non-profit organisation with a core mission to promote values-based thinking and accountability in leadership. 

The Forum is London-based and was incubated at Oxford University’s Said Business School in 2011. It was launched in 2012 under the patronage of Her Majesty Queen Rania al Abdullah in Amman, Jordan.
Global Thinkers Forum has a network of influencers and partners that reach more than 70 countries around the world and engages leaders across business, philanthropy, academia, science, civil society, NGOs and government. GTF has partnered with some of the world’s leading brands, organisations and foundations and has an advisory board consisting of social impact focused leaders from over 20 countries.


Global Thinkers Forum promotes positive change by fostering conversations, collaboration and accountable leadership. Youth and women are catalysts for innovation and forward thinking, and we actively promote their empowerment and engagement through international mentoring.


Global Thinkers Forum’s vision is to become the world's most respected organisation in promoting values-based decision-making and in stakeholder engagement for supporting youth and women through mentoring.

I wish to invite you to partner with us, as impact can only be maximised through partnerships. In your country, your region, your industry, there are women and young people who can benefit hugely by being paired and mentored by an international expert. This is the way to transfer leadership skills, and knowledge.

So, let’s keep walking the talk, together!

My very best,

Elizabeth Filippouli, 

Founder and CEO, Global Thinkers Forum and Athena40
