The third annual Chick-fil-A Leadercast Conference, streamed live from Atlanta, will take place in Brockville this Friday, giving local business owners, corporations, residents and students the opportunity to interact and learn from some of the world’s most influential thought leaders in business, creativity and leadership.

To be held at the Centennial Road Church (3545 Centennial Road, Brockville, ONT), the Brockville Leadercast is part of the international Chick-fil-A Leadercast event, which brings together speakers including Jack Welch, Coach Krzyzewski, Condoleezza Rice for a not-to-be-missed one day streamed event.

Championing everyday leaders who will make their community a better place, a gold sponsor of the Brockville event is local resident Karen Bayles, a leadership, wellness and relationship expert. Ms. Bayles coaches individuals throughout North America and trains groups in the government, schools, businesses and churches. Ms Bayles will be one of three trainers in an exciting Youth Track seminar delivering life changing insight, to run alongside the main event. She will be joined by Jason Jardine, (Winds of Change, Recreation Therapy and Leadership Development) and Jeremy Conway (Revolution Skateboarding & Fashion, Youth Pastor) Youth Track will work with local students on leadership issues, helping them to make choices that deliver extraordinary results.

Aaron Perry, organizer of Brockville Leadercast said, “The Chick-Fil-A Leadercast is a one day leadership development conference featuring 9 world class speakers. At Brockville, a specialized track is designed for students in grades 10-12 over the lunch period to provide interactive learning based on what they have learned in the morning. This helps to assimilate and practice key skills among their peers. This specialized activity allows for kinetic learning style to be engaged so that key lessons learned through other sessions may be applied.”

More than 110,000 around the world participated in the 2012 Chick-fil-A Leadercast with over 150,000 this year. Brockville attendees can expect to be challenged, inspired and encouraged and leave with a brand new take on how to become a more effective leader and increase their influence with tangible results.

Ms Bayles said, “It is very energizing to be a part of this event. It is wonderful to be challenged as a leader, to learn and grow. I am also fortunate to be working with youth at this event and seeing them grow as individuals - it is so rewarding. There is nothing better than witnessing the ‘aha’ moments that happen for the students as they are introduced to new concepts and are given new tools for life.”

The Brockville Leadercast starts at 8.30am on Friday May 10 2013 at Centennial Road Church, 3545 Centennial Road, Brockville, ONT. Tickets are priced at $75.
