Local Businesses Bring Global Leadercast Event To NKY

For the eighth year, a group of local businesses will host NKY Leadercast as part of the world’s largest one-day leadership conference. Broadcast live from Atlanta, the event is simulcast to hundreds of locations and more than 100,000 participants around the world. This year’s event will be held May 6 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Receptions in Erlanger.

“This year’s theme is ‘Architects of Tomorrow’,” said event organizer Mike Sipple, Jr., president, Centennial, Inc. “It focuses on visionary leaders who imagine and build a future that is rich in innovation, collaboration and full of hope. It’s a movement that is changing the way the world thinks about leadership.”

“It’s our job to inspire and train leaders in our community,” said Sipple. His company, along with other noted brands such as Chick-fil-A Northern Kentucky, Commonwealth Bank and Trust, Core Consulting Group, DG Advisors and Gilchrist Group, are sponsoring the NKY event.

“Participating in Leadercast makes me a stronger leader because it reinforces the need to be intentional,” said Chris Painter, Logikor, LLC, president. “I count on this event to summarize the elements of great leadership. It also is a great opportunity to invite key clients and business partners.”

“Chick-fil-A NKY is proud to support Leadercast because we know that strong leaders are the key to a successful business,” said Dustin DiChiara, owner/operator of the Houston Road Chick-fil-A in Florence, KY.

NKY Leadercast Emcee Julie Bauke, CEO of The Bauke Group said, “Your people will refresh, connect, energize -- and bring back everything they learn to your workplace. There is an energy and effectiveness of sharing a room with like-minded people all hearing the same content, discussing and expanding it.”

“This is a great way for aspiring leaders to expand their knowledge and exposure to potential local role models and connections,” Bauke said.

“The program will inspire attendees and give them tools to be a leader worth following,” Sipple said. The one-day event is very affordable ranging from $90 for individuals, to $75 dollars each for a table of eight, and $1250 for a sponsorship package which includes eight tickets.

“Our goal is to sell out this year so that both employees and companies take their new knowledge back to work with them,” Sipple said. “This event offers diverse perspectives on leadership from scholars and practitioners across many fields.”
