Global COmmunity
Dialogue Day

  1. Demonstrate the global reach of our network, as well as the wide array of subject experts in our network
  2. Create an engaging global event which has something for everyone
  3. Showcase many of our key areas of focus, either current or future
  4. Increase the size of our global audience
  5. Use this event to expand our network of experts by bringing in people we think could be valuable future contributors to SotG’s work. 
So what are the qualities we are looking for in terms of “valuable future contributors?”
In general we are looking for speakers who meet at least 3 of the following criteria:
  • Are aligned with our core principles (can be found on home page:
  • Are aligned with our core methodology of local solutions scaled globally through a diverse network
  • Have a large existing following already(10,000+ LinkedIn followers for 1st world economies)
  • Have the time to become an active future contributor to our work

We try to make preparation as simple as possible for our Panelists:
Step 1: Determine which panel/showcase you are the best fit for based on your time availability and expertise in the particular topic for that hour(see schedule below) as well as other panelists we have already slotted in.
For this, you should communicate with our Special Projects Director:
Step 2: Panelist should write your own starter question which our moderator will ask you after you have introduced yourself. This question should be on whatever nuance of that particular topic is of greatest importance to you. If needs be we can offer a sample of starter questions for your to choose from/modify. 

                Showcasees should prepare a 5 minute presentation of your work, and be prepared to answer 5-8 minutes of questions
Step 3: Both Panelists/Showcasees should Write a basic intro which includes the most relevant details you would like the moderator to mention while introducing you. Each introduction will be approximately 1 minute in length so if you include too many details, you are choosing the let the moderator decide which details to mention.  
Step 4: Attend one of the pre-event Panelist Q&As to make sure we are all on the same page.

SotG Foundation Overview

The World Spirit of the Game Foundation was formed to help individuals and organizations take Personal Accountability for their Impact on the world.

Our organization has spread to 30+ countries so far just in 2021 and there are 4 main Pillars of the organization, with each individual or organizational member choosing for themselves how many of these areas they wish to contribute to.

1) Developing SotG as the world’s first “crowd-sourced” life philosophy which both provides individuals with an internal framework for choosing a different definition of winning and as a Social Movement which provides the external framework that helps like minded individuals and organizations around the world maximize their positive impact on society.

2) An Impact Coaching division to help raise funds for the non-profit work, and which now has a wide range of offerings for universities, as well as for corporations, SMEs, and start-ups.

3) Typical NGO work which includes applying for grants on Youth Leadership, Women’s Empowerment, and Entrepreneurial support, among others, as well as organizing global initiatives and supporting other NGOs

4) A global Impact Network of “disruptors of dysfunctional systems” that consists of individuals and organizations from the worlds of non-profit, social enterprise, for profit, academia and government.

Here is a full video overview of these 4 pillars as well as a deeper explanation of the long term goals of the organization/movement.
