Real Leaders

The Community for Impact

There comes a time when leaders are called to pursue a purpose greater than themselves. 

With over 13 years of covering the most purpose-driven leaders of our time, we decided to build a community for the ones who know that they can’t change the world alone.

By joining the Real Leaders community you are surrounding yourself with the most impact-oriented, growth minded CEOs, investors, coaches, and speakers on the planet who want nothing more than for you to succeed.

The magazine

Real Leaders magazine presents a meticulously curated selection of the world’s top keynote speakers, offering invaluable insights for CEOs and executive leaders. In this groundbreaking issue, explore CEO perspectives, drive innovation, and amplify impact on a significant scale. Discover actionable strategies to expand your organization’s influence and enhance its journey towards success.

The IMPACT Awards

about the impact awards

We unite our award-winning Founders and CEOs to connect, inspire, and support one another, so that they can collectively drive progress and create a better future for all.

By winning an award, not only are you featured in Real Leaders magazine, you effectively reduce friction in finding other values-aligned CEOs, capital sources, speakers, conferences, and coaches in our community to grow your impact.

Our admissions team reviews each application and will notify you of your eligibility within 2 business days.
