This year over 125,000 leaders from around the world will attend Chick-fil-A Leadercast. In its 13th year, this full day, experiential conference will be the largest to date.
"It is one of the single most consolidated sources of leadership that I know of," said Paul Urbanowki, senior manager at AT&T. "But it goes beyond that. I think this conference, although very focused on leadership, transcends the topic and really shows you how to lead in life."
This year's program will focus on simply leading. 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 their 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 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."
