MNU Host Site for Chick-fil-A Leadercast

MidAmerica Nazarene University will be a host site for Chick-fil-A’s Leadercast, a one-day leadership event broadcast LIVE via satellite and internet, on May 6 from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in Bell Cultural Events Center. The “Voices of Change” speaker line-up includes renowned leadership expert John Maxwell, ABC Good Morning America Anchor Robin Roberts, and financial guru Dave Ramsey, among eight others who will relate their wisdom in and experience with leadership to audiences around the world, including 13 foreign countries, from a live venue in Atlanta, Ga.

In its 11th year, Leadercast’s vision is to make catalysts for change and provide resources for intentional leadership development well after the event. According to the event’s web site, the entire program is built around what they call the five voices of leadership which include hope, influence, innovation, purpose and service.

MNU alumni director Kevin Garber, who leads the partnership team responsible for bringing Leadercast to Bell Center, says participants can expect an interactive day packed with practical as well as motivational learning.

“This is a premier leadership development event with internationally acclaimed speakers,” Garber says. “It promises to engage all the senses and provide applicable experiences you can implement for change in the workplace. MNU is happy to bring this quality event to Olathe.”

Olathe Chick-fil-A franchise owner Jeff Rouse says providing Leadercast is part of the way his company fulfills its corporate purpose.

“Chick-fil-A’s purpose statement is ‘that we might glorify God by being a faithful steward in all that is entrusted to our care, and that we might have a positive influence on all the people that we might come in contact with,” Rouse says. “Leadercast is one of the ways they walk the talk. The company believes in training leaders because leaders grow others into leaders—not just followers, and that’s ultimately what helps organizations grow.”

Tickets for the event are $69 per person and include lunch. For more information call (913) 971-3275.
