The Global Institute For Tomorrow (GIFT) is an independent and internationally-recognised think tank based in Hong Kong. Founded in 2004, GIFT provides executive education promoting a deeper understanding of the shift of influence from the West to Asia, the dynamic relationship between business, society and the state, and the reshaping of the rules of global capitalism.
GIFT’s original approach to executive learning and leadership development combines candid discussion and debate with output-driven field projects providing direct exposure to the issues shaping the 21st century.
GIFT’s proprietary learning methodology has been refined over 50+ programmes working with more than 1,500 participants in 15 countries, including China, India, Myanmar and Iran, among many others.
The practical benefits realised by individuals, clients and partners have earned GIFT a reputation for being at the cutting edge of executive education.
The GIFT Team hails from many different backgrounds, both culturally and professionally, yet share a common interest in striving to produce world-class executive learning programmes, while also creatively developing ideas and project outcomes that will have a positive impact on the world’s most pressing challenges.
GIFT’s Global Advisory Council is a select group of business and academic leaders committed to supporting GIFT in its mission of advancing a deeper understanding of global issues through its original approach to executive leadership development. By advising GIFT’s management team and contributing to programmes as guest speakers and mentors, Council members enhance GIFT’s profile and effectiveness in accomplishing our objectives.
