Lee's Summit JournalMarch 28, 2014 

Community business leaders can access the knowledge and experience of world-renowned leaders by attending Leadercast at Legacy Christian Church in Lee’s Summit.

Speakers include Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Malcolm Gladwell (author of The Tipping Point and Outliers) and former First Lady Laura Bush.

The Leadercast event May 9 is broadcast LIVE from Atlanta to hundreds of sites around the world, including Lee’s Summit. The speaker lineup for the full-day event also includes:

Andy Stanley, leadership author and communicator;

Randall Wallace, screenwriter, director, producer & songwriter (Braveheart, Secretariat);

Bill McDermott, CEO of SAP;

Laura Schroff, Former ad sale executive and best-selling author of An Invisible Thread;

Henry Cloud, clinical psychologist and leadership consultant;

Simon Sinek, best-selling author of Start with Why and leadership expert.

Last year, over 100,000 leaders from 14 countries attended Leadercast.

“It is one of the single most consolidated sources of leadership that I know of,” said Kip Nelson, who will host the event in Lee’s Summit. “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.”

Leadercast exists to positively change the way the world thinks about leadership. This year’s theme –Beyond You–challenges leaders to focus outward rather than inward. Experience Leadercast and discover what it means to be a leader worth following.
