You’ll have the opportunity to test your ideas for the future, and you’ll be challenged to positively impact your community and empower those around you in new ways.

HOPE Global Forums speakers join a community of leaders who share our vision of an inclusive global economy. Speakers can foster an opportunity for this community of thinkers and visionaries to engage in a subject that is meaningful to you and help change the world for the better.


The HOPE Global Forums | Annual Meeting gathers some of the most extraordinary people in the world – convening an array of C-suite leaders and influencers from government, community and the private sector to outline an inclusive vision for the modern global economy. A vision where the poor, underserved and struggling middle class are viewed as untapped assets for economic growth, entrepreneurship and job creation.

Set in the cradle of the Civil Rights movement, the Annual Meeting provides an opportunity to share, learn and source new ideas and to expand your business while empowering your community. We invite you to enjoy three days of stimulating ideas, challenging debate, reunite with old friends and engage new colleagues in this unique and inspirational setting.


Attendees comprise an eclectic slate of stakeholders from across the spectrum of our integrated global economy. Last year, the corporate, financial, governmental, technology, academic, nonprofit, startup, diplomatic, philanthropic, media and faith-based sectors were all represented. Over 4,800 thought leaders and influencers representing over 60 countries attended.


Each year, we intentionally curate an eclectic mix of innovative and provocative thought leaders from across sectors who have incredible stories and insights to share.
