JONESBORO -- Community business leaders can access the knowledge and experience of world-renowned leaders by attending LeaderCast® at Arkansas State University Friday, May 9, sponsored by A‑State’s Continuing Education and Community Outreach and the Jonesboro Regional Chamber of Commerce.

The LeaderCast event is broadcast live from Atlanta to hundreds of sites around the world, including Arkansas State. This year’s speaker lineup includes:

  • Andy Stanley, leadership author and communicator
  • Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel laureate & human rights activist (live from Cape Town, South Africa)
  • Malcolm Gladwell, journalist and best-selling author of “The Tipping Point” and “Outliers”

Last year, more than 100,000 leaders from 14 countries attended LeaderCast.  Now in its 15th year, this full-day, experiential conference is on track to reach its largest audience to date.

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.
