“I want to thank you yet again for being allowed to participate in your 2021 Global Women Leadership Summit. Congratulations on a tremendous and inspiring event. I mentioned to my colleague, Dan, that every presentation/testimonial should be made available to youth and lifelong learners across the Diaspora, regardless of gender.” Participant.

On the 27th of March 2021, the Global Visionary Women Network (GVWN) and partners were proud to host The Global Women Leadership Summit 2021. Unprecedented times such as these call for us to adapt, which led to this year’s summit being a virtual one. By no means did this compromise the quality; with this year’s event hosting an inspirational line up of female speakers, which comprised of change agents, global pioneers, entrepreneurs and leaders who were brimming with wisdom, knowledge and passion which they imparted on the participants.

Dr. Sylvia Forchap-Likambi, the Founder/Global Chair of GVWN, and Founder/CEO of Voice of Nations, delivered an inspiring welcome and keynote speech which kickstarted the summit with an air of inspiration, shedding light on the theme of the summit: Leading & Thriving in Challenging Times & The Need for Vision-driven Leaders in challenging times.

The Global Visionary Women Network were honoured to have the Lord Mayor of Liverpool Cllr Anna Rothery in attendance, she officially opened the event with an exceptional keynote filled with insight on “Following in The Footsteps of Visionary Female Leaders”. Also in attendance was Her Royal Majesty – Queen Naa Tsotsoo Soyoo I, Matron and Global Ambassador for Global Visionary Women Network, who delivered a perspicacious keynote speech “Leading and Thriving in Challenging Times”.

The first masterclass was conducted by non-other than the astounding Dr Isaura Gonzalez, the Founder and CEO of Latina Mastermind. Dr Isaura discussed in a thrilling and engaging manner, “Enhancing Cross-Cultural Representation and Fostering Diversity in Leadership”. Following shortly after was an inspirational female leader, the Regional Enterprise Manager for Natwest: Heather Waters. Her masterclass on “Access To Finance & Funds For Female Entrepreneurs – Opportunities and Strategies”, imparted participants with the necessary knowledge to create opportunities from themselves and efficient ways in which to access available funding.

The day saw several Inspirational talks followed by Q&A sessions as well as a thought-provoking Panel discussion and Q&A session. The first inspirational talk was led by Liverpool’s youngest best seller and the Founder and CEO of Teyes Eyes Skincare and Cosmetics/cofounder of Likambi Global Publishing, Latoya Likambi. As an inspiration and role model to many young people globally, she was well suited to speaking on “Inspiring The Next Generation of Female Leaders and Innovators”.

The Panel discussion emphasised on the importance of “Prioritising & Optimising Your Health & Wellbeing – The Role of Emotional Intelligence in Leadership”. This was followed immediately by the Keynote/ Tedx speaker, Business Coach and Founder of Opening The Doors To Your Future Accredited Programme, Angela Preston’s inspirational talk on “Developing Resilience in Challenging Times”. By no means was this all about the summit; there were further activities such as the final inspirational talk by the Senior National Sales Director of Mary Kay for the UK, Yvonne Williams. This talk accentuated the significance of “Building Powerful Networks & Relationships to Outlast Crises”.

The inspirational and power-packed day begun winding down with an inspiring interview with Dr Annie Lim, the Founder of Women in Business World Summit, Dr Annie Lim International Inc AND the LIFE Children Foundation on “Creating Wealth & Multiple income streams”. The participants were gingered up and ready not only to lead but to thrive in the face of challenges.

The workshop was the final activity of the day, allowing participants to discuss amongst themselves and with the speakers/ group leaders” Key Principles, Strategies, & Take Aways from the Summit”. As attested to earlier, the summit received glowing feedback from summit delegates and participants.

The conclusion of the Summit was a period of networking, followed by acknowledgements and farewells, the esteemed guests gave delightful remarks, spotlighting the success of the Global Women Leadership Summit 2021.

“This is way beyond anything I have ever attended in my life. The speakers were amazing, very inspiring, authentic and full of wisdom. I left with so much to apply in my life and work. Thank you.” Participant.
