Salzburg Global Fellowship Events

Salzburg Global Seminar programs offer participants a transformative experience that can have a crucial impact on their professional and personal development. While the “Schloss magic” provides the spark to start a unique exchange of knowledge and ideas, dialogues launched in Salzburg continue long after our Fellows have returned home. Each participant becomes part of the Salzburg Global Fellowship, our network of more than 25,000 current and future leaders, change makers and imaginative thinkers from more than 160 countries. We warmly invite you to share professional updates and success stories with the Network and engage with Fellows across the world on issues of common concern. We are happy to facilitate this dialogue online and reconnect Fellows through events in Salzburg and around the world.

To register for any of our upcoming events or to inquire about hosting a Salzburg Global Fellowship event in your own city and for more information on the Salzburg Global Fellowship contact Salzburg Global Fellowship Manager, Jan Heinecke via email fellowship@SalzburgGlobal.org
