China, Sub-Saharan Africa, Brazil and now Europe

What if we considered Europe to be a dynamic network of value creation?
What if we learned from successful cooperation projects that cross borders?
What if business, politics and civil society defined new concepts of Europe together?
What if leadership contributed to rethinking Europe in this manner?

At the Transcultural Leadership Summit | TLS, which takes place annually at Zeppelin University in Friedrichshafen, Lake Constance, these questions are discussed in depth. On November 14th and 15th, 2019, renowned experts from business, politics and academia will engage in debate with senior managers, young professionals and students from all over the world.

What is the Transcultural Leadership Summit?

Providing a platform for current issues of transcultural leadership, the TLS aims to provide new perspectives on globalization. We believe that, in times of increasing worldwide connectedness, global value creation and urbanization, sustainable success is highly dependent on whether an organization with a global reach is able to master cultural diversity and to build on transcultural commonalities in order to cooperate efficiently. In this context, the TLS confronts and tackles questions and challenges, not only in business but also in politics and other sectors of society.


The TLS is organized by a group of highly motivated students and headed by Prof. Josef Wieland, director and founder of the Leadership Excellence Institute Zeppelin | LEIZ. This year’s Transcultural Leadership Summit will be the fourth of its kind and will build upon the accomplishments of the previous three summits to create another fascinating event.

Be part of the Transcultural Leadership Summit!


We are looking forward to welcoming you to Lake Constance
on November 14th and 15th, 2019!
