For years, Leadercast has brought people together and equipped them to become better leaders, managers, community members, and employees. Here is what people have to say about Leadercast:

“We believe strongly that the development of well-equipped regional leaders is an essential ingredient in pursuing our vision of a healthier and more vital northeast Missouri. We are very pleased to be working with HLGU to bring this incredible line-up of leadership and inspiration to our region,” remarked C. Todd Ahrens, President and CEO of Hannibal Regional Healthcare System.

“It is one of the single most consolidated sources of leadership that I know of,” said Youse. “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 is something that anyone from education to management can benefit from and should attend. We are all leaders in some way and should continue to seek guidance on improving ourselves. I believe we should bring our entire office. I’m looking forward to Leadercast 2016,” Bob Pollard, director of client services, Benson Financial Group.
