About Global Thinkers Mentors
Global Thinkers Forum (GTF) is a global platform bringing together a diverse network of thought leaders and creating meaningful networking and conversations around global challenges and trends. GTF’s mission focuses on three areas: fostering accountability in leadership, promoting women’s empowerment and creating opportunities for young people to develop. GTF is also a bridge-builder, and an organisation that promotes public-private sector partnerships and opens conduits for collaboration and stakeholder engagement. The Forum is London-based and was incubated at Oxford University’s Said Business School in 2011.  It has been created with the vision to help our societies and leaders navigate a very complex world.

GTF launched officially in 2012 in Amman (Jordan) under the patronage of Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah. We have since partnered with some of the world’s top brands, organisations and foundations. It features a prestigious Advisory Board with thought leaders and decision makers from over 20 countries. The Global Thinkers Forum organises a wide range of activities including meetings, seminars, fora, roundtable discussions, workshops, networking events, and it’s not for profit initiatives such as the mentoring programmes and Awards for Excellence.

As of January 2018, GTF joined forces with Sharjah-based NAMA Women Advancement Establishment, introducing the revised Athena MENA Mentorship programme. The long-term foundational mentorship programme pairs thriving MENA women with leading mentors from around the world.

As part of the Global Thinkers Mentors, GTF has created two programmes ‘Telemachus’ and ‘Athena MENA’ connecting its participants with thought leaders and inspiring individuals. Telemachus benefits young individuals between 18-29 from around the world, while Athena MENA focuses on women above the age of 22.

In either context, GTF pairs mentors with mentees on the following areas of mentoring: Governance & Public Office, Accountable Leadership, Media, Business, Entrepreneurship, Corporate Career, Academia, Non Profit, Science.

GTF mentees are provided with a personalized development opportunity to address individual learning needs. This opportunity helps them over a period of eight months to develop new skills and expertise, and to enhance, enrich and expand their professional and personal perspectives. GTF mentors help mentees also with confidence-building in dealing with challenges and issues. They also assist with advice on career development and personal growth as well as their networking opportunities.

As a result of this process, GTF mentees 'graduate' far better equipped to set goals, to aim high and achieve them!
