Why attend The Global Leadership Summit?

We need good leaders now more than ever. You are one of those leaders.

The Global Leadership Summit (GLS) provides a wealth of leadership insight from world-class faculty ready to equip and inspire you—no matter where you have influence. 

Upper House is a GLS host site in partnership with Asbury Church and High Point Church. We believe that we can all grow as leaders equipped to build relationships, accomplish common goals, and advance transformation wherever we work and live. The Summit provides us an opportunity to grow together around a slate of fresh  ideas,  actionable  concepts,  leadership  principles,  and  inspiration.

What can you expect?

More than 15 world-class faculty will share distinct perspectives and practical leadership skills. The conference schedule has also been expanded to include an interview with President George W. Bush on the morning of August 6. Topics on the docket—
  • Leading through crisis and ever-changing new realities
  • Breaking free from the lies we believe about work
  • Becoming more agile and inventive
  • Overcoming fear and problematic power dynamics in teams
  • Leveraging science-based research to increase connection opportunities

For an overview of The Global Leadership Summit, schedule, and speakers, visit the GLS website.

Your “Online Plus” Experience

At 8:30 AM (CDT) on August 6, the virtual live-stream event will launch. Your “Leader Pass” will give you access to the Upper House welcome video, resources, the full conference schedule, speaker bios, and video stream.

Our online event will be augmented with locally-facilitated chat and breakout sessions. Marketplace leaders and ministry leaders will also have an opportunity to participate in a dedicated, lunch-time breakout session.

Concerned that you might miss part of the live-stream event? Don’t worry. Every person who registers for The Summit will receive a unique watch link that includes both the live event and a 7-day Video on Demand Access Pass; this provides flexibility for people who want, or need, to access sessions at alternative times.

We also encourage you to consider hosting or joining a watch party, either at home or at your office. This can be energizing and enable you to more deeply engage and apply the content that interests you most.


  • REGISTER here if you are part of our Upper House community.
  • Use priority code LEAD2020 for the best available rate. (Upper House will be pre-filled in the form as your organization.)
  • If you live near Sun Prairie, you might consider registering with Heartland Community Church, which is also a GLS host site.
