Austin, TX – Austin Bridge Builders Alliance (ABBA) believes that this year’s Global Leadership Summit (GLS) is a catalyst for change in Austin. The GLS provides vision, inspiration, and countless practical skills to leaders and influencers. This 2-day world-class experience is for people who are intentional about developing their leadership skills in a stimulating environment and who are looking for something that is creatively inspiring and intellectually rigorous. The Summit impacts more than 405,000 people in over 500 U.S. host sites and in 135 countries. This year’s Austin-area Summit is being hosted exclusively by ABBA at the Long Center. Featured speakers include Ben Sherwood, former co-chairman of Disney Media Networks; DeVon Franklin, award-winning producer and best-selling author; Bear Grylls, adventurer and television host; Jason Dorsey, President of The Center for Generational Kinetics; and many more.
“We’re excited about our partnership with the Global Leadership Summit because we believe that what happens in Austin impacts the world. Currently, we are one of the fastest growing cities and ranked number two in job growth in the nation. Austin is experiencing a new era of growth and prosperity that I believe rests on the shoulders of its leaders and influencers. At ABBA, our aim is to connect with those new and emerging leaders in the area to facilitate a fresh style of leadership in Austin. We provide innovative solutions to help leaders and influencers overcome the problem of isolation and stagnation. Our services connect, engage, and discover leaders across various spaces and platforms,” says Rich Carney, Executive Director of ABBA.
The Global Leadership Summit will be held this August 8–9, 2019 at the Long Center. SailPoint Technologies, Dirk and Katie Dozier, the Bless Foundation, Clean Scapes, Morgan Stanley, Austin’s Better Business Bureau and many others are partnering with ABBA to bring about this summit.
