the global luxury expert network (GLEN)

The Global Luxury Expert Network is Luxury Institute’s network of hundreds of elite experts. Our elite experts provide our client’s with real-time intelligence, diverse perspectives, strategic and tactical analysis, innovations, recommendations and solutions. Global Luxury Expert Network members have the ability to participate in client projects, refer projects to the network, and be the client by requesting projects and services for their own entity.

Our experts are employed full-time with top luxury goods and services companies, yet enjoy working briefly on non-competitive, zero-conflict projects that help them, and their employers, network and build lasting business relationships. Other experts are between jobs and desire the opportunity to contribute and add value. The third group is comprised of independent experts who have had relevant, successful corporate careers, and now want the flexibility to work when they want to, on projects they select. All expert members earn supplemental income for the projects in which they participate and refer.
