Leadercast event next week


The human population is growing, cultures are colliding more each day and, consequently, there is a growing need for more leaders, preferably ones that history will remember well.

Leadercast, which is a prominent leadership program, exists to positively change the way the world thinks about leadership. Leadercast 2014’s theme is “Beyond You” and will challenge leaders to leverage their influence for the sake of others.

Leadercast is focused on building leaders worth following.

“Leadership is not reserved for those with a ‘C’ in their title,” the organization’s website states. “We need better leaders in our communities, businesses, organizations and in homes across the world. Leadercast exists to serve individuals and organizations across all sectors who want to become intentional about raising their standard of leadership.”

The event will take place on May 9 and will be the largest convergence of leaders in the world, according to Leadercast’s website. The main conference will be out of Atlanta, with 600 simulcasts occurring in over 40 different nations. Mineral Wells Area Chamber of Commerce is one of the 600.

“[Leadercast exists] to strengthen leaders – to be that leader worth following,” chamber Director of Member Services Marcelinda Williams said. “[It exists] to strengthen the leadership in our community, in our churches, in our home, in our jobs. This event is extremely beneficial. You actually walk away with some great nuggets – some tips that you can use to strengthen your own leadership.”

This year’s leader-line up includes:

• Andy Stanley

• Malcolm Gladwell

• Archbishop Desmond Tutu

• Randall Wallace

• Bill McDermott

• Laura Schroff

• Dr. Henry Cloud

• Simon Sinek

• Laura Bush

• Cat Deeley (co-host)

• Tripp Crosby (co-host)

Tickets for the Leadercast 2014 simulcast are $99 for members of the chamber and $119 for non-members. They can be reserved by contacting Williams at 940-325-2557.
