The Transatlantic Leadership Seminar of the German Marshall Fund of the United States enables leaders from business, government, and civil society to advance their professional portfolios with practical global engagement strategies. It achieves its mission with direct exposure to key issues, actors, and trends driving change outside the United States and Europe. Briefings, meetings, and site visits led by subject area experts deliver practical insights, tools, and contacts for effective transatlantic and global leadership. The seminar relies on GMF’s extensive network of partners and 30-plus years of strategic convening to provide an expert-guided, seven-day study tour of the highest quality. The seminar builds on the best practices of GMF’s signature program, the Marshall Memorial Fellowship.
