In the wake of an unpredictable and challenging 2020, global leader Bishop T.D. Jakes is bringing leaders from all areas of business and the nonprofit sector together to get clarity on the way forward. The reimagined 2021 International Leadership Summit is now a virtual event. From April 29 to May 1, industry thought leaders like Tyler Perry, Steven Furtick and Judah Smith will speak to a variety of topics including technology, global economics, faith and more.
"It is going to take all of our leaders coming together to not mirror what happened in 2020," said Jakes. "From the racial injustice to the COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot continue to leave our world without strong, strategic leaders who can bring us forward and out of the depths of where we started in 2020. We need to all get on the same page and come together once again to bring unity, hope and decisive action to our world of chaos."
