Who We Are

GLG is driven by the curiosity of approximately 1,300 employees around the world who are transforming the way the top professionals share expertise and learn.

Soon after its founding in 1998 GLG began connecting top professionals across fields and around the country. Over time, we became a membership of leading experts providing business decision-makers with insights to create better, more informed outcomes.

Today, we are the world’s largest membership network for one-on-one professional learning, comprising more than 500,000 thought leaders and practitioners, including business leaders, scientists, academics, former public sector leaders, and the foremost subject matter specialists. We serve users at more than 1,400 client companies in 40 countries. These clients include Fortune 500 companies in nearly every sector and the leading professional services firms and financial institutions.

GLG’s industry-leading compliance framework allows clients to learn in a structured, auditable, and transparent way, consistent with their own internal compliance obligations and the highest professional ethical standards. Our compliance standards are a major competitive differentiator and key component of the company’s culture.

Our CEO on the Future of Professional Learning

More than fifteen years ago we started GLG to help investors make better decisions and in the process transformed the way equity research gets done. Today, more than a million projects later, we have a broader mission – to transform the way all top professionals share expertise and learn about strategic and operational challenges.

Our mission and values make GLG not only a great place to work but also an essential business partner. Tens of thousands of professionals have joined us in our mission and that number continues to grow. We envision a whole new marketplace for peer-to-peer learning.
