The Global Compact: The Leader Summit 2016



The Global Compact is an incredible alliance created by the United Nations in 2000 which is a call to all companies to align strategies and operations with universal principles on human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption. By doing this, the private sector and institutions in all countries can take and generate actions that will advance societal goals.

One of the ideas of the Global Compact is that ‘Business as a force for good’. With this in mind, companies commit to world sustainability; here is where business takes a shared responsibility for achieving a better world.

I was be in New York City attending the United Nations Global Compact’s LEADER SUMMIT, where leaders convened to translate the Sustainable Development Goals into business action and innovation everywhere.

Join me as we learn how to make global goals our local business and how businesses can be a change agent in attaining a better world.

Luis Vicente Garcia speaks at The Global Economic Initiative at the United Nations

Dear Friends, queridos amigos


It is my real pleasure to share with you the video of an amazing opportunity I had to speak at the headquarters of the United Nations last June. I was one of the founding members of the Global Economic Initiative where 30 entrepreneurs from seven different countries gathered to speak and discuss about some the issues that are affecting the world of business, education and economics today. It was an incredible event.

My message was that regardless of our circumstances, you need to be positive, be an optimist and have a strong personal motivation. Once you have these key-ingredients, you will be able to become a better entrepreneur and business owner, have more clarity and see things in a much better way.


We cannot leave everything that needs to be fixed to the governments we have in many countries, particularly in Latin America. This is why I call out to the local and regional entrepreneurs to:


  1. Be the ‘change factor’ we need to be and want to become;
  2. Generate the initiatives that are needed to empower our people and our teams – basically through training and education; and,
  3. Guide our countries to a higher level of growth and development.


We can do this and much more form the private sector and need to start working on these initiatives today, as taking ACTION today is a must.


Thanks to the National Association of Experts, Writers and Speakers and to the International Entrepreneur Foundation for such an incredible invitation to speak at this life-changing event on this magnificent institution in New York.
