Networking the Nations Summit

Our 2021 Event was Held on August 10-12, 2021

After a tremendously successful Equity for Africa Summit in April, it is hard to describe the incredible relationships that formed between African heads-of-state and American executives, but it was tangible. Now, we invite you to a summit exclusively for U.S. CEOs! Together we’ll build an even bigger network to share the faith and create win-win business relationships that will endure. During this CEO event, we will have several family offices represented who want to know where technology will be in 5 years. High-level keynotes, CEOs, and others will relay information on the ground in real-time. Igniting both faith and intellect to shape history for generations to come, our CEO Summit is unique and inspirational because Liberty University is one of the largest Christian platforms in the world. 

Summit Highlights

Our exclusive participants:

  • Gained access to Liberty’s extensive network of world-class CEOs, government leaders, family offices, trending innovators, and international connectors
  • Built friendships with trusted colleagues and alumni who share your faith and freedom values and want to transform the world together
  • Interacted with lively, candid facilitators who offer a rich balance of Christian perspectives on current leadership challenges and global opportunities
  • Met NFL stars, Fox Business news icons, best-selling authors, and leading social media influencers who can help project your message
  • Engaged in topics ranging from technology, security, finance, healthcare, media, manufacturing, agriculture, and accessing global markets including Africa & Latin America
