Headline Event and Opening of London Tech Week


To inspire the most innovative thinkers through connections, using technology to build a just, equitable and resilient world.


GLIS exists to inspire the most innovative thinkers to use technology to drive business and champion positive change. 

GLIS aims to bring leaders together to share ideas, discuss trends and work on solutions. The topics and challenges discussed are constantly evolving and need long-term solutions. 

Therefore, GLIS aims to send our attendees home with impactful summaries of roundtable discussions and ideas of how to implement positive change.

  2. Leadership: Our leaders amplify and champion positive change, inspiring generations and leading with impact.
  3. Innovation & Technology: Spotlight trends and transformational opportunities within the corporate and scale-up space. Provide that stage to share innovation and influence the future.
