District 105CW Global Leadership Team (GLT)

This page is dedicated to the Learning and Development of all members across our Lions District.

Leadership Development is critical to the overall success of any organisation, including Lions Clubs International.

The Global Action Team – Global Leadership Team (GLT) provides the vision, guidance and motivation necessary to positively impact our association, assuring our position as the global leader in providing needed community service for many years to come.

Many of the skills Lions gives us can be transferred to our every day lives, this year we gave courses planned including:-

New Members Sessions, Conflict Resolution, Public Speaking, Meeting Management, MyLion to name but a few.

We provide courses across the Lions Year both face to face and virtually.
Keep an eye out in the District News Letter for details of future courses.

This year we have a team of dedicated Lions to help us all develop,


If you have any queries or questions please do not hesitate to contact me via email glt@lions105CW.org.uk
