The World Leaders Awards Ambassadors are unique relays of our great community and the message we wish to convey. They are the pillars of our organisation spread across the world. 

The Ambassadors of the World Leaders Awards are personalities of international stature. They all hold very important positions and have proven their commitment through their actions and values. All of them work on a voluntary basis.

Thanks to their fame and influence, these personalities work alongside us to improve the situation of the most vulnerable and make the World Leaders Awards a unique and exceptional event. The ambassadors have both a representative and a leadership role.
