Leadercast conference to be simulcast in Shreveport


Leadercast, the world’s largest one-day leadership conference, broadcast live from Atlanta and simulcast to hundreds of locations around the world on May 5, 2017. This year marks the seventeenth year of the annual leadership conference and the first year that Barksdale Federal Credit Union will be at hosting the event at Centenary College in the Kilpatrick Auditorium from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. A Mexican lunch will be served, along with a light breakfast. Tickets are $85.

The theme of this year’s conference is, “Powered by Purpose.” Purpose is what defines us, drives us, and empowers us. It is the glue for an organization and the fuel for an individual. Today’s organization can’t rely on old practices. A new organization is emerging and at the center of its driving force is the igniting power of purpose.

  • Companies with ideals of improving people’s lives at the center of all they do outperform others by 400%
  • More than 70% of people consider an organization’s environmental and/or social impact when deciding where to work
  • Employees that feel they are working towards a good cause show increased productivity by up to 30%
  • People who are able to make a social or environmental impact on the job are more satisfied by a 2:1 ratio

The conference will allow attendees to discover the steps they can take to uncover their purpose, to reconnect to their organization’s “why”, to attract and engage the right people for your efforts and to thrive as a team. Key speakers – with purpose-driven leadership– will inspire the more than 100 people who attend locally, and the more than 100,000 people who will attend the event live in Atlanta or at hundreds of other simulcast locations in more than 20 countries. Among the keynote speakers are:
