The Synergos Global Gathering (SGG) is the flagship annual meeting and event for the Synergos Global Philanthropists Circle.

Rooted in Synergos’ Bridging Leadership approach, the gathering invites participants to reflect deeply, discover new partners, and challenge their assumptions resulting in collective action.
