The community is invited to attend a leadership and business management training program that will address your entire being, including your head, heart, and soul. The Global Leadership Summit embraces all three elements to improve and prepare today's and tomorrow's business leaders.
The two-day summit provides important training and inspiration for leaders working in a wide range of fields, including education, business, government, public service, nonprofit organizations and churches.
Featuring presentations by 13 internationally recognized leadership authorities, the summit will be broadcast live via satellite from the Willow Creek Community Church, near Chicago, to thousands of participants attending at 600 "host sites," including Bakersfield's Valley Baptist Church at 4800 Fruitvale Ave., on Thursday and Friday, Aug. 10 and 11, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
This year's presenters include Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook's chief operating officer; Laszlo Bock, senior advisor at Google; Marcus Buckingham, author and founder of The Marcus Buckingham Co.; Bryan Stevenson, founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative; and Marcus Lemonis, star of CNBC's "The Profit," and CEO of Camping World and Good Sam.
Speaker topics will include: assessing an organization's growth potential; creating an innovative culture; streamlining process to boost execution; reimagining performance management; identifying personal attributes critical for success; and thriving in the face of adversity.
