GGFYP will host this seminar on May 4th from 7:00am – 4:00pm at Hope Covenant Church. Tickets to Leadercast are open to the entire community and employers are encouraged to send their employees. The first 100 tickets will be sold at the reduced rate of $75 for YP members and $85 for non-members, and can be purchased at www.ggfyp.com.
“We are excited to bring this unique and powerful learning opportunity to the Grand Forks area,” said Stacey Heggen, GGFYP Executive Director. “No matter who you are or what you do, this day will leave you motivated.”
This year's event focuses on the choices you make and how they define the leader you will become. These choices are about the positive impact you can have on your organization, your workplace, your community and beyond.
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.”
