MOUNT VERNON — Community business leaders can access the knowledge and experience of world-renowned leaders by attending the Chick-fil-A Leadercast on the campus of Mount Vernon Nazarene University in Mount Vernon, as well as at MVNU’s locations in Mansfield and Newark, on Friday.
Chick-fil-A Leadercast is a one-day leader development event broadcast live from Atlanta, Ga., to hundreds of sites throughout the nation, including Mount Vernon Nazarene University. Speakers for the event include:
•Soledad O’Brien, Anchor and special correspondent for CNN.
•Tim Tebow, NFL quarterback, Heisman Trophy winner and best-selling author.
•Patrick Lencioni, best-selling author and president of The Table Group.
•John Maxwell, leadership expert and best-selling author of “The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership.”

Last year, 85,000 leaders from 17 countries attended Chick-fil-A Leadercast. This year, the full-day, experiential conference is predicted to reach its largest audience to date. “This is a tremendous opportunity for local and regional business leaders to take advantage of the best minds and hearts for leadership the world over,” said MVNU event organizer Holli Bibler. “For an affordable price, close to home, a person’s entire business and leadership perspective has the potential to be changed.”
This year’s program will focus on the power of choice. The diverse group of internationally acclaimed authors, leadership experts and practitioners will share insights to help leaders empower and equip others at work, at home and in the community through his or her choices.
“We’re really good at getting messages aimed at very specific, targeted audiences. But we aren’t always very good at reaching out across the culture,” said Malcolm Gladwell best-selling author of “Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking” and “Outliers: The Story of Success.” “I think this is one of the few organizations that does that ... that really appeals to me.”
