In an age when great leadership is more vital than ever, there exists little direct international recognition of true leadership in action.
The Hillary Institute of International Leadership accepts this challenge. We are here to recognise, reward and nurture great leaders, currently in play, who will provide answers to such challenges as climate change, poverty, disease, peace and justice.
Such achievements are often the result of the singular vision, dynamism, drive and focus of individuals who inspire those around them and effect significant social, environmental and economic improvement. This site reflects the eight years of our journey to date and the extraordinary characters who people it. We welcome your own leadership and invite your support.
