What people had to say about GCF 2014

Thank you for inviting me to the Global Citizen Forum 2014 in Toronto, Canada. It was a very good experience for me to spend time with people from all over the world. The network, practice exchange and news updates were the most interesting points in this forum. The program and entertainment were very interesting. The fact that this forum held place in Toronto was very meaningful since this a multicultural city. I hope to see more programs from different countries in the next forum. Thank you very much!

The GCF has given me the opportunity to meet many wonderful people: political and industry leaders, world-famous speakers, other celebrities. I also learned a lot about the issues and programs concerning the dual citizenship for investors, business people and globetrotters. It was not only an extremely well organized and illustrated event, but also very useful for me and our organization.
