World-renowned innovators to speak at Piñon Hills leadercast

Community business leaders can access the knowledge and experience of world-renowned leaders by attending Chick-fil-A Leadercast at Piñon Hills Community Church in Farmington on May 4.

This one-day leader development event, broadcast LIVE from Atlanta, Ga., to hundreds of sites throughout the nation, is sponsored by ConocoPhillips.

Speakers for this year’s event

include:

• Soledad O’Brien, anchor and special correspondent for CNN

• Tim Tebow, NFL quarterback, Heisman Trophy winner and best-selling author

• Patrick Lencioni, best-selling author and president of The Table Group

• John Maxwell, leadership expert and best-selling author of The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership

• Angela Ahrendts, CEO, Burberry

• Roland Fryer, professor of economics at Harvard University and CEO of the Education Innovation Laboratory

• Urban Meyer, ESPN analyst and former head football coach for the University of Florida

• Andy Stanley, best-selling leadership author and communicator

• Sheena Iyengar, author of The Art of Choosing and world-renowned expert of choice

Last year, 85,000 leaders from 17 countries attended Chick-fil-A Leadercast. In its 12th year, this full-day, experiential conference is predicted to reach its largest audience 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 the power of choice. 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 his or her 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 the 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.”
