At Global Leadership Partners, we inspire leaders and transform lives. We partner with like-minded organizations around the world to provide world-class leadership-themed training for university students and business professionals. Our speakers are successful business leaders with extensive experience. Our training promotes values including courage, humility, integrity, and care for others, and we inspire people to a purpose beyond self. Participants leave our seminars inspired and equipped to make a positive difference in our world.
Our vision is to change the world one leader at a time. We believe everyone can be a leader, so we seek to inspire leaders of integrity to make a positive difference in their families, employers, communities, countries, and ultimately, their world.
We believe leaders who have courage, humility, integrity, and care for others are the best leaders—those more likely to make good ethical as well as practical choices. History shows these values transcend cultures, ages, and spheres of life, and improve quality of life for the world's citizens.
We focus our message on university students and business professionals from small and medium-sized businesses in countries around the world.
Taking a one-year leave from his Procter & Gamble career, Todd Geist and his family moved to Eastern Europe in 2009 to do volunteer work. While there, Todd was invited to create a leadership seminar for university students. After two successful seminars, Todd realized the transformative power of purpose-infused, values-based leadership.
Once back at P&G headquarters in Cincinnati, Todd used vacation time to return to Eastern Europe twice each year to present leadership training in partnership with local organizations. As requests for this training increased, two P&G retirees—Steve Simpson (2014) and Scott Liston (2016)—joined him.
In late 2016, Todd retired from P&G to devote more time to training aspiring leaders. In 2017, he, Steve, and Scott founded Global Leadership Partners to oversee the growing demand. Since then, countless reports of inspired leaders and transformed lives have kept the GLP team energized to continue this work.
