Last year, 85,000 leaders from 17 countries attended Chick-fil-A Leadercast. This year, the full day, experiential conference is predicted to reach its largest audience to date.
"This is a tremendous opportunity for local and regional business leaders to take advantage of the best minds and hearts for leadership the world over," said MVNU event organizer Holli Bibler. "For an affordable price, close to home, a person's entire business and leadership perspective has the potential to be changed. Who knows what doors may be opened from the Leadercast?"
This year's program will focus on the power of choice. The diverse group of internationally-acclaimed authors, leadership experts and practitioners will share insights to help leaders empower and equip others at work, at home and in the community through his or her choices.
"We're really good at getting messages aimed at very specific, targeted audiences. But we aren't always very good at reaching out across the culture," said Malcolm Gladwell best-selling author of "Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking" and "Outliers: The Story of Success." "I think this is one of the few organizations that does that...that really appeals to me."
