About the ITW Global Leaders' Forum

We empower consumers and enterprises to communicate and transact for any service, on any device, in any geography. We enable the globalisation of business and the closure of the digital divide.

The ITW Global Leaders’ Forum (GLF) is a global network of leaders from the world’s largest International Carriers, who convene to discuss strategic issues and to agree collaborative activities, with the aim of upholding the principle of interoperability and ubiquitous international and technological coverage. The group was created by the founders of International Telecoms Week and its work has grown since its conception in 2015.

The mission of the GLF is to be “the voice of the global carrier industry providing leadership and direction to interconnect the digital world”. This encapsulates the ultimate aim of the GLF, and its members, which is to enable consumers and enterprises to communicate and transact for any service or application, on any device and any infrastructure, in any geography, thus enabling the globalisation of business and the closure of the digital divide.

The International Carrier industry is a critical part of the global ecosystem, providing the backbone that enables digital services to be distributed around the world. The GLF’s primary objective is to provide leadership and direction for the industry by advocating common priorities that will limit network fragmentation and improve interconnectivity so that new digital services can be delivered at scale anywhere in the world.

Who Are the GLF Members? 

The GLF Community 

In 2020, the GLF founded the GLF Community, expanding on its current scope of work and including more diverse companies, reaching out to the whole industry. It is the ecosystem of ICT Service Providers and partners that will ensure the ongoing development of the international telecoms industry. and facilitates an open dialogue amongst the C-Levels of the leading global ICT ecosystem players to advance technical and commercial interoperability as an enabler for future connected businesses, societies and economies.
