Since 2011, the International Leadership Summit (ILS), formerly the International Pastors and Leadership Conference, has cultivated aspiring and tenured entrepreneurs, leaders, and influential change agents with invaluable leadership insights from T.D. Jakes, ILS visionary and founder.
Inspired by his New York Times bestselling book, “SOAR! Build Your Vision from the Ground Up,” ILS continues to be one of the most transformative leadership conferences celebrated by the world’s brightest minds.
Meet us in person at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, from March 31 to April 2 as Jakes leads our 2022 ILS alongside a lineup of groundbreaking thought leaders.
With keen attention to detail in developing the CEO, faith leader, or aspiring entrepreneur, ILS assists leaders in constructing a solid foundation of leadership that will stand the test of time.
Are you ready to pick up the tools of a Master Builder?
We’ve created a unique experience for such a time as this.
As a result of the continuing COVID-19 concerns and the absence of a timeline for the end of the pandemic, the 2021 International Leadership Summit (ILS) will transition into The International Leadership Summit: Virtual Experience, from April 29 through May 1, 2021. Your well-being is our top priority, and this final decision was made out of an abundance of caution and care for your health and safety.
We’ve partnered with some of the most astute, inventive minds of our time to help you and your team make sense of the chaos, clear the debris from your 20/20 vision, and give you clarity on how to move forward in these most unusual circumstances.
“While we have been hampered by the coronavirus in meeting together in person, our vigilance to share the voice of the Church remains strong. I am continuing to provide leadership online to both my church and to our nation. Now more than ever, we must recognize that there is more to unite us than to divide us. It is imperative that we stay connected to each other.” — Bishop T.D. Jakes, Senior Pastor of The Potter’s House; Founder of T.D. Jakes Ministries
Hosted by Bishop T.D. Jakes, ILS is a conference for visionaries, entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, pastors, and leaders the world over, looking to expand their professional and personal sphere of influence and sharpen their leadership skills, especially during these transitional times.
