The Leadership Committee

Join Us

The Leadership Committee is a network of leaders who bring high-level influencers and decision-makers together from government, business, and nonprofit sector to carry out some of the most difficult projects in the world.

This extensive network involves current and former government officials, corporate and charitable executives, philanthropists, advisors, consultants and experts from all continents of the world. 

Specific projects span a vast range of industry sectors, including health, technology, communications, infrastructure, economic development, and humanitarian assistance.

What do we do?

Through our vast network, we bring the right people together to carry out some of the most difficult projects in the world.

We are working in Latin America to bring medical and maternity clinics to those in underdeveloped areas.

We are working to provide access to scholarship programs to communities overseas seeking to send their youth to universities in the United States, including through online curricula.

We are working on public-private partnerships, where major infrastructural advancements in the corporate sector establish and maintain philanthropic commitments to the community, with priorities for women and children's services.

And more...

What Should You Expect

Expect to meet people who want to find new partners, whether for charity projects and fundraising - or for economic development and community empowerment opportunities. These are people who have known each other over the years and have worked together on several projects, and people who are looking for their first opportunity.

Most have an entrepreneurial spirit.

We understand that projects, especially those bearing strong and longstanding positive impacts on communities, do not happen overnight. They require extraordinary partnerships and long-term commitments. Whether a project is completed over a period of months or years, expect high-level requirements for successful long-term involvement.
