Welcome to the Leadership Excellence Awards

Recognizing excellence in senior leadership within large enterprises.  The Leadership Excellence Awards break down geographic boundaries to recognize the best in the world.

CALLING ALL OUTSTANDING SENIOR LEADERS

The Leadership Excellence Awards are hosted at the globally respected GDS Summits, bringing together senior executives from the biggest global brands who are actively seeking to learn, engage, and find the best technology solutions. 

The events provide a forum for leaders to learn from peers about how they are approaching common challenges and opportunities. Each GDS Summit hosts a Leadership Excellence Awards with the ceremony held at the end of the conference agenda. This gives outstanding individuals the chance to be recognized for their achievements in front of the industry in which they serve.
