May 08   Leadercast - The Brave Ones
Community and business leaders can access the knowledge and experience of world-renowned leaders by attending Leadercast® at Salem Lutheran Church in Tomball, Texas on May 8, 8 am - 5 pm. 

The Leadercast event is broadcast LIVE from Atlanta, GA to hundreds of sites around the world, including Tomball! This year’s speaker lineup includes:

•    Andy Stanley - Leadership author and communicator
•    Malala Yousafzai - Nobel Laureate; Founder, The Malala Fund
•    Ed Catmull - President of Pixar & Disney Animation Studios
•    Seth Godin - Best-selling Author
•    Rudy Giuliani - 107th Mayor of New York City (1993-2001)
•    Aja Brown - Mayor, City of Compton
•    Bill McDermott - CEO of SAP AG
•    CMDR Rorke Denver - Navy SEAL Commander & Author
•    Bill & Giuliana Rancic - Award-Winning Personalities & Co-Hosts of Leadercast
•    And more!

Last year, over 130,000 leaders from 35 countries attended Leadercast. Now, in its 16th year, this full day, experiential conference is on track to reach it’s largest audience to date.

 “It is one of the single most consolidated sources of leadership that I know of,” said Aaron Hanz, CRPC AIF, President at Doulos Wealth Management. “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—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.
