About the Chick-fil-A Leadercast 

The Chick-fil-A Leadercast is a leadership conference which was started in 2000 by John C. Maxwell. He had a vision to create a conference of qualified leaders that was affordable and open to a large audience. He wanted it to represent the growth and importance of leadership in any organization. Today, through shared ideas and information leadercast brings light to the necessary qualities and actions needed to become a respected and successful leader.

The 2011 Chick-fil-A Leadercast is a one-day event which is expected to have 70,000+ leaders from 13 countries around the world in participation. The event will take place in Atlanta, Georgia and will also be videocasted live from host-sites around the globe. Future voices of change will be gathering together to discuss and show the effects the power of change through effective leadership can have.
