IDEAS FOR TOMORROW
Founded in 2004, the Global Institute For Tomorrow (GIFT) is an independent and internationally recognised think tank and provider of executive education focused on advancing 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.

"In recent years, "experiential learning experiences" have become 'de rigueur' at leading business schools...as professors seek to move their curriculums beyond classroom case studies and better equip their students to operate in unpredictable emerging markets.
Typically the business schools send their students overseas for a few weeks - often to developing countries - to work with companies, government or non-governmental organisations to draw up business plans or product launches.
GIFT...[offers] something more immersive and with more impact, both for participants and those they work alongside.
On its programmes, executives work in developing countries to come up with business models...that can make returns for investors while fulfilling a wider social need."
“I never expected one could gain so much from a management training programme. A diverse team working towards one goal showed that commitment and team work transcends nationalities and cultures. It was amazing to see how participants transformed. My biggest learning was that leadership is not about individual brilliance but collective outcomes.”

"The GLP encourages you to push the boundaries of common assumptions and really challenge what is important in today’s world. It was an inspiring experience that I will never forget."
