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

  • Andy Stanley, Leadership author and communicator
  • Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel laureate and human rights activist, live from Cape Town, South Africa
  • Malcolm Gladwell, Journalist and best-selling author of The Tipping Point and Outliers
  • Randall Wallace, Screenwriter, director, producer, and songwriter (Braveheart, Secretariat)

  • Simon Sinek, Best-selling author of Start with Why and leadership expert
  • Laura Bush, First Lady of the United States (2001-2009), via exclusive video interview

Last year, over 100,000 leaders from 14 countries attended Leadercast. Now, in its 15th year, this full day, experiential conference is on track to reach its largest audience to date.

"It is one of the single most consolidated sources of leadership that I know of," said Lauren Youse, HLGU Alumni Director. "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 - Beyond You - challenges leaders to focus outward rather than inward. Experience Leadercast and discover what it means to be a leader worth following.
