‘Leadercast’ is the world’s largest one-day leadership conference. It is broadcast live from Atlanta Georgia to hundreds of locations around the world. One of them is Slave Lake.
Garry Roth, the Director of Community Services for the Town of Slave Lake, says this year marks the 18th year of the annual leadership conference; it’s the first year that the Wildfire Legacy Corporation will be hosting the event at Slave Lake’s Legacy Centre.
Roth says he was looking at expanding and broadening out the types of events that come to the Legacy Centre; being familiar with Leadercast, he thought it would be a good event for the community.
“I have attended a number of Leadercast workshops when I lived in Grande Prairie,” he says. “There will be nine world-class speakers who are a wealth of information.”
Roth adds that workshop participants can apply the skills they learn in the workshop almost instantly to their jobs. These include learning to guide yourselves through personal leadership skills and skill development. Leadercast will allow attendees and viewers to improve their own personal leadership journey with tips for self-evaluation and self-growth.
The theme of this year’s conference is, ‘Lead Yourself.’
Roth says 100,000 people will attend the event live in Atlanta or at hundreds of other broadcast locations in more than 20 countries. The live event actually took place on May 4 but because of timing and set-up, it will be re-broadcast on June 8.
Tickets are on sale now online through the Town of Slave Lake’s website at www.slavelake.ca/legacycentre or by going to Eventbrite at www.eventbrite.ca and searching for Leadercast 2018 in Slave Lake. The cost of the workshop is $130.
