HEMET – Leadercast is the largest one-day conference on leadership in the world. The conference is broadcast to over 700 locations around the world and viewed by over 100,000 participants.
Last year, Hemet became one of those locations – the only location in the Inland Empire. The historic Hemet Theatre hosted the event, with 100 participants from Riverside, San Bernardino and Orange counties. This year, the attendance is expected to double.
Leadercast focuses on the issues most relevant to today’s time-starved leader. It is a place of inspiring messages coupled with rich interaction between fellow leaders that want to raise their standard of leadership, and it is all delivered with a creative, energetic and memorable approach. This year’s theme, “Driven by Purpose,” will explore what can happen when teams and individuals are connected with purpose, creating an organizational culture with intentional leadership that inspires extraordinary results.
The 2017 conference will take place Friday, May 5, from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. There are nine keynote speakers scheduled to speak including leadership author Andy Stanley; author and television commentator Suzy Welsh; Molly Fletcher, a former top sports agent and author; psychologist and author Dr. Henry Cloud; Daniel Pink, a behavior science expert and the host of “Crowd Control;” Tyler Perry, a director, playwright, actor and producer; Jess Ekstrom, CEO of Headbands of Hope; Jim McKelvey, the co-founder of Square and the founder of LaunchCode and Donald Miller, CEO of StoryBrand.
The Hemet site offers the lowest price of any host site in California. Local sponsors are helping to defer the cost of the conference, hoping to maximize the conference’s impact in the local community. Sponsors for this year’s event include the San Jacinto Wal-Mart Superstore, Southwest Riverside County Association of Realtors and Sage Investing. Additional sponsors are needed.
The Millennium Toastmasters Club has joined the team to organize the local event which will include a continental breakfast and lunch. Returning this year will be motivational speaker Randy Powell as the live keynote speaker at the lunch break. Powell is a resident of Temecula and a life coach, helping leaders in the Inland Empire to become “extraordinary performers.”
