Leadercast, the world’s largest one-day leadership event

You probably think leadership events aimed at big business leaders. Leadercast, a one-day annual event broadcast from Atlanta, is different. “This year’s theme is how to lead a healthy team, and it is open to anyone, from students to CEOs, in any size and type of organization including non-profits,” says Acacia Pangilinan, Interim Executive Director for the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce. “Perhaps they work in teams and have had frustrations with how they can’t communicate or meet targets, or maybe they’re interested in becoming leaders in the future. The thing that brings them all together is that they are willing to learn and want to grow.”

The Kamloops broadcast of the event is hosted by the Chamber of Commerce and takes place at Thompson Rivers University on May 10 from 8am to 3pm. Nine experts will be speaking, including broadcaster Gayle King, leadership communicator Andy Stanley, and Morgan Stanley MD Carla Harris. “I’m most excited to hear from Dr. Caroline Leaf, who is a cognitive neuroscientist,” says Pangilinan. “When they bring in these type of speakers, I learn so much about who I am and the way I want to lead my team.”

As well as speakers, there are breaks throughout the day where attendees can meet, network and participate in workshops and activities. They also receive digital summaries to take back to the office and share with colleagues. “I think my favourite thing is that you are surrounded by people with the same values and interests, who want to better themselves, in an atmosphere of learning,” Pangilinan says. “The diversity of the types of individuals and organizations also allows real opportunities to learn from each other. Teamwork is part of almost everything we do, and this is an opportunity to navigate that better. It will be an exciting, inspiring day.”

Leadercast tickets include lunch, a workbook, a professional development certificate and the opportunity to apply for CEU credits. Prices start at $79+tax for a student. Find out more at Kamloopschamber.ca
