FAQ's

DLC believes that leaders are always lonely at the top. We want to challenge this status quo and cause a positive impact in the world of Entrepreneurs, Professionals and Young Leaders. We believe that DLC Global Community can be the catalyst of change to drive people from 'A Life of Success to a Life of Significance'.
A. The DLC Global Community

The DLC Global Community is an ensemble of the collective expertise of 1500+ thought leaders from 15 of the world’s major cities and straddling 26 diverse Knowledge Domains (13 Business and 13 Lifestyle). It is the knowledge, experiences, insights that these experts bring to the DLC table that make each DLC Global Business and Lifestyle Committee unique and invaluable the world over.


DLC’s members include diverse, distinguished and successful individuals from each of its 15 Global Chapter cities whose membership is subject to a carefully curated selection process. DLC ensures that 40% of our members are Entrepreneurs, 40% are Professionals and 20% are Young Leaders. With 30% local representation in every chapter city, DLC thinks and acts globally - making sure that our members are two steps ahead of the curve in any given situation, at any point in time. This gives ambitious DLC Members the vivid opportunity to connect, rub shoulders and share knowledge with other like-minded individuals.


B. DLC Knowledge & Brand partners

DLC Business and Lifestyle’s thirteen domains, each promise to provide its members with bespoke knowledge and exclusive lifestyle deals and experiences like no other, by collaborating with specialists of various professional services as well as iconic luxury and lifestyle brands.


C. Forum

DLC has developed a unique forum format that enables our members to interact with a small group of individuals (6-10 members) for peer-to-peer business knowledge. The benefit here is that each Forum group serves as your personal board of directors. The DLC Forum acts as a support system where members can express and discuss important ideas and concerns, in a highly confidential environment.


How DLC Forums work

➢ DLC Forums operate on the key idea that some of our best work happens when you’re in close contact with a small group who knows you well, and with who you feel comfortable expressing key, important ideas with.

➢ When a new member joins DLC, the member will be added to a specific Forum.

➢ Forums must have regularly scheduled Forum meetings with defined agendas. On the DLC dashboard, members will be able to view their engagement scores with the Forums that they are part of.

➢ Forums offer additional activities to complement the primary activity that is already taking place within the Forum: a Spouse Forum, a Young Leaders Forum are two ways in which the Forum experience extends to the whole family, and sets up the next generation for thoughtful business practices. Forum Retreats are also offered to Forum members. To know more about retreats.
