Why You Don’t Want to Miss the 2011 Chick-fil-A Leadercast

Last year I attended the Chick-fil-A Leadercast in Atlanta, Georgia. I also had the privilege of hosting the “Backstage Video” program. I interviewed each of the speakers, including Jim Collins, author of Good to Great; Dr. Ben Carson, the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital; and Dan Cathy, the President and Chief Operating Officer of Chick-fil-A.

Chick-fil-A Leadercast 2010

I attended numerous events last year, but this one was in my top three. Why? Because it provided the inspiration and practical how-to information leaders need to take their leadership to the next level.

Giant Impact will again be hosting this Chick-fil-A Leadercast event on May 6, 2011 in Atlanta, Georgia. Once again I will be hosting the “Backstage Video” program. The lineup of speakers this year is second-to-none. They include:

This one-day event will be broadcast live from Atlanta Georgia to more than 75,000 attendees. You can attend the live event or host the event within your own community via internet or satellite feed.

If you are in a church leadership position, this is a great way to build relationships with the local business community, generate alternative revenue, and be relevant to business leaders in your city.

The theme for this year’s program is “Voices of Change.” The Chick-fil-A Leadercast team believes that every leader has a voice. This event will help leaders identify and use their leadership voice to creative positive change around them. This includes developing five kinds of voices:

  1. Voices of Service—these are behind-the-scenes leaders, impacting others through their generous gifts of time and talent.
  2. Voices of Innovation—these are innovation pioneers, helping others realize dreams through their fresh perspectives and contagious enthusiasm for the future.
  3. Voices of Hope—these are encouragers, inspiring others to plan for and expect that a better outcome is always within reach.
  4. Voices of Purpose—these are visionaries, steadily and confidently directing others toward the envisioned destination.
  5. Voices of Influence—these are mentors, humbled by the responsibility that comes with empowering, developing and guiding fellow leaders.

What is the next step? If you’d like to be involved, visit the Chick-fil-A Leadercast Website or call (877) 225-3311 to request more information about the event.

You can also follow Chick-fil-A Leadercast on Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin to be kept up-to-date on the latest leadership resources and news about the event.

This is an opportunity for you to take your leadership to the next level. Don’t miss it!

    This looks fantastic, Mike! Thanks for sharing about this.

    Wow Michael, what a great lineup! What I want to know is how you get gigs like this? What a privilege to meet and interview speakers of this caliber. I really enjoyed your one-on-one interviews from this year’s conference and I can’t wait to hear from this new group in June. You always have insightful questions that bring personalities to life. You should really be on Good Morning America… or at least Good Morning Nashville. Keep up the good work!

    I cannot recommend this event enough. I attended the videocast last year and was completely blown away. I learned so much. Jim Collins, John Maxwell, and Ben Carson completely rocked my world.

    I attended the Willow Creek Global Summit this year as was blown away. The diversity of the speakers and their messages re-energized me. This was the first simulcast event I’ve attended and will participate in more. I will attend the Chick-fil-a event as well. I expect the value will far exceed the investment

      I was at the Willow Creek Global Summit a couple years and loved the event. There was no way I could afford going, but I was really impressed with the quality of the simulcast. I would say that the line-up for this event is even more applicable for me. Hopefully I can find a host in my area!

    I have attended the Chick-fil-A Leadercast for four years now (when it was called the Maximum Impact Simulcast).

    I get great value from these conferences by teaching from people who are older than I am, more experienced than I am, and smarter than I am.

    I love to sit down with my workbook and pen and write as many good thoughts, ideas, and principles as I can. Then, I take key thoughts from the speakers and share them on my blog with my readers, giving the credit to the speakers. (short spinets to avoid copyright and intellectual content plagiarism.)

    I don’t recall ever hearing of this conference until now. Looks impressive. I may try to make it. Thanks for spreading the word. And now I’m suddenly craving a chicken sandwich for lunch!

    I find it very interesting how important ‘Leadership’ has become to the business world. I also find it interesting that we don’t always have this same passion within the church. We must build leaders in our churches! And it must start at a young age.

  • http://www.thegetintentionalmovement.com Ryan Jenkins

    One of my favorite events of the year as well!
    Been the last 3 years and it is beyond motivating – it is truly inspiring and mind expanding! Another perk is to rub shoulders with other thought leaders.
    See ya there Micheal!

    This sounds amazing! I have passed the information onto leaders at my church.

    • http://www.michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Thanks for doing that. I don’t think they’ll be disappointed. It’s a GREAT way to reach out to the business community.

    I attended the simulcast from Grand Rapids, MI last year and highly recommend the event. It is also an incredibly cost-effective tool for leadership development in your organization. While prices vary by location, they typically run around $100 or less for the day.

    Where or when else will you get an opportunity to learn from such an incredible line-up for that price? Furthermore, as Michael mentioned, this is also a great opportunity to connect church and business.

    Thanks for sharing Michael. While I will likely still attend remotely, you can count on my attendance again this year.

    Loved this event last year and the lineup this year looks even stronger. Excited!

  • http://Www.Robinalewis.com Robin Lewis

    Awesome! We will be hosting again this year!

  • Kingsly

    This sounds great!! Hope you would have a great time…

    Wow! That’s an amazing line up. My niece is participating in their Impact 360 program this year. GREAT opportunity for young people!

  • http://www.justopenthebook.com David, justopenthebook.com

    Amazing lineup! Thanks for sharing the information, and early enough for us to get organized. We are all leaders, whether in our homes, churches, business, communities, or all of the above. The lessons and insight being shared here is gold for everyone. Thanks again!

    • http://www.michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      This is really one of the best conferences available any where. I hope you get to come.

  • http://justonebeggar.com Ron

    Wow. I’ve never heard of this conference before. It would definitely be something I’m interested in attending and getting our church leadership on board with. Thanks for the information!

  • http://www.jeffrandleman.com Jeff Randleman

    Wow. Sounds like a great event. I would love to attend. Just not sure our church has the finances to cover it right now. We are a smaller congregation….

    It’s definitely a matter for prayer. Perhaps God will open up an opportuniy for us to attend.
