Global Summit of Women

Global Summit of Women

The Global Summit of Women, also known as the ‘Davos for Women’ is an annual gathering of 1000 exceptional women from around the world, from Corporate, Entrepreneurship and NGO sectors.

Founded by the powerhouse Irene Natividad over 22 years ago, the summit takes place in a different continent every year. This will be  my 6th summit this year.

What keeps me coming? Fantastic speakers, break out sessions and the opportunity to network and learn from exceptional women leaders from all sectors and from all countries. This summit is truly global.

Each year, the summit has amazing gala dinners in the most exceptional places. I have :

  • had dinner with the First Lady at the foot of the Pyramids,
  • dined in the same room as President Obama in the Peoples Hall in Beijing
  • had spectacular dinner in the Zappeion building in Athens (national monument not open to the public), to name but a few.

This year in Malaysia is truly exceptional. After a superb day of top quality plenary and breakout sessions, we will have dinner with the Prime Minister and his Wife on the first evening and on the last evening, the most exceptional thing – we will have dinner at the Palace with the Queen of Malaysia. It really doesn’t get much better than that!
