Last year, more than 130,000 leaders from 35 countries attended Leadercast. Now in its 16th year, this full day experiential conference is on track to reach its largest audience to date, a press release said.
“Leadercast is an outstanding program that helps us refresh our thinking about leadership in our personal and professional lives,” said 2014 attendee Ben Stephens of CNS and chair of the Oak Ridge Chamber of Commerce’s Center for Leadership and Community Development. “It also gives us the opportunity to network with some wonderful people across the region. It is worth the time investing in myself and worth my organization’s investment in my future as a leader.”
Leadercast exists to positively change the way the world thinks about leadership. This year’s theme—The Brave Ones—challenges leaders to lead with a sense of bravery, possessing a posture of unrelenting boldness.
“Bring your friends or team members to experience Leadercast and discover what it means to be a leader worth following,” the release said.
New Hope Center is located at 602 Scarboro Road.
