Frequently Asked Questions

What is happening with the GLS during Covid-19?

The GLS in New Zealand is online this year and as the GLS is held via video-cast we are easily able to take the GLS online. We hope you will join us this year as we grow our leadership together in this demanding season.


You might like to gather your team, where possible under the Alert Level restrictions, for our live online event. Please see for the most up-to-date information regarding the Alert Levels in your region.


Team members working from home or other spaces can join the event as well. We encourage that you honour our request that all who attend GLS20 must be an individual ticket holder. This ensures our ongoing viability as a not-for-profit and allows us to continue to offer access to the Summit at a very affordable price.

Are the GLS speakers live in-person, or via video?

GLS events are held via videocast, and this allows us to present the speaker sessions at a fraction of what it would cost you to see them in-person. Additionally it allows us to host an extensive list of leadership experts all as part of the one event. Gathering alongside a sizeable audience of your peers along with seamless technology and a wow live event with MC, expert facilitation and live band helps you to feel immersed and fully engaged in the presentations.

What does my ticket include?

Your ticket to the GLS 2020 experience includes access to the premiere broadcast on the 15th-16th October, a digital participant notebook and on-demand access to the speaker talks for three weeks post-event.

What if I cannot watch the premiere broadcast live?

Your ticket includes on-demand access to the speaker talks for three week post-event. Alternatively, we have a digital Team Edition resource which gives you a year’s access to the talks.

How do I access the GLS online?

We will be using a platform to deliver the GLS to you and a link will be sent to the email you registered with for you to access the GLS. Please ensure your email is up-to-date. You can email to confirm this.

Which speakers will be shown at the GLS 2020 in New Zealand?

Craig Groeschel, Marcus Buckingham, Rory Vaden, Vanessa Van Edwards, Bishop TD Jakes, Amy Edmondson, Michael Todd, Dr Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, Beth Comstock, Kaká, Albert Tate.

Can I watch the speakers if I don’t purchase a GLS ticket?

Yes, you can purchase the digital Team Edition which has a year’s access to the talks. Details on how to purchase will be available soon. Please email to register your interest and you will be emailed when they become available.

Are there discounts for students or gold card holders?

Yes, discounted tickets at a price of $40 are available to students and gold card holders.

Are there group discounts available?

Yes! If you have a team of 11, you can purchase 10 tickets and we will give you the 11th for free! Just choose the Group Discount ticket option on Eventbrite (where the prices have been adjusted accordingly).

I purchased a ticket before the GLS went online, what has happened to my registration?

For every person who registered before the GLS went online this year, you have been transferred to our new registration system and to show our appreciation for your support and expectation of a live event, we would like to gift you the digital Team Edition resource.

Can I cancel my ticket?

Yes, but you must do so at least two weeks before the event and a cancellation fee will be incurred. Please email

We hope you and your team can join us in 2020 as we anticipate more than 1,200 leaders to gather nationwide, to inspire one another in vibrant leadership learning communities.
