International leadership conference for Liliendaal on May 9

Leadercast, an international leadership event is set to be held at the International Conference Centre, Liliendaal come May 9.

According to a press release the event, which will be hosted by Professional Development Enterprise and the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry, will be the first of its kind in Guyana.

Leadercast will be broadcast live from Atlanta Georgia, USA and simulcast into communities across the globe.

The line-up of speakers includes: Andy Stanley, Leadership author and communicator; Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel laureate & human rights activist; Malcolm Gladwell, Journalist and best-selling author of The Tipping Point and Outliers; Randall Wallace, Screenwriter, director, producer & songwriter (Braveheart, Secretariat); Bill McDermott, CEO of SAP; Laura Schroff, former ad sale executive and best-selling author of An Invisible Thread; Dr Henry Cloud, Clinical psychologist and leadership consultant; Simon Sinek, Best-selling author of Start with Why and leadership expert and Laura Bush, former First Lady of the United States (2001-2009).

The release noted that leaders from every sphere of activity can access the knowledge and experience of world-renowned leaders by attending Leadercast.

It said last year, over 100,000 leaders from 14 countries attended Leadercast, which is now in its 15th year.

Rawle Dundas, former Director of Unicomer and Director of Professional Development Enterprise said that, “It is one of the single most consolidated sources of leadership information that I know of and it goes beyond that. I think this conference, although very focused on leadership, transcends the business arena and really shows you how to lead in life.”

Leadercast exists to positively change the way the world thinks about leadership. This year’s theme—Beyond You—challenges leaders to focus outward rather than inward, the release said.
