What Is Leadercast?

The world is looking for great leaders to follow.
In order to become those leaders to the outside, we have to lead ourselves first. We must walk the walk. It’s like the flight attendants tell us: “Please remember to wear your own oxygen mask before helping others.”  This year, Leadercast will focus on that very concept. How do you lead yourself effectively?  How do you develop your core principles and values so that your leadership is an outpouring of your innermost self?  And how much more will those who follow you benefit from your leadership when you lead yourself well?  At Leadercast 2018, the speakers who will take the stage will inspire you to lead yourself well first so you can better lead your families, organizations and communities after.  Speakers include Carey Lohrenz, the first female F-14 Tomcat Fighter Pilot in the U.S. Navy; Dr. Jim Loehr, Chairman, CEO and Co-founder of Human Performance Institute, and Mae Jemison, an American engineer, physician and NASA astronaut who became the first woman of color in the world to go into space.

Learn more about the speakers.

Dr. Jim Loehr, Human Performance Institute
Mae Jemison: Engineer, Physician and NASA Astronaut

Leadercast is the world’s largest one-day leadership event, with more than 100,000 attendees participating at 700-plus locations in 20 countries around the globe.  Broadcast live from Atlanta via satellite, Leadercast features some of the best-recognized leadership experts and speakers in the world.

At last year’s inaugural Thunder Bay event, it proved to be a great way to connect with other like-minded people seeking inspiration and improvement in leadership and attracted over 125 people – a mix of individuals and groups attending from businesses, charities and not-for-profit organizations.  Looking for a great way to build up your team?  Looking to re-connect with your optimistic self? This event is for you.
