Chick-fil-A Leadercast is a one-day leadership event broadcast live from Atlanta to hundreds of locations around the world. The event gives locals a chance to hear world-renowned leaders speak via broadcast from the Georgia World Congress Center.

This year the program will focus on the idea of "simply leading," and the idea of simplifying life so leadership can thrive. Speaking on this topic will be: Jack Welch, former chairman and CEO of General Electric; Andy Stanley, best-selling leadership author and communicator; Mike Krzyzewski, head men's basketball coach of Duke University and Team USA; John Maxwell, best-selling author and leadership expert; Dr. Henry Cloud, best-selling author and leadership consultant; LCDR Rorke Denver, Navy SEAL and star of the 2012 movie "Act of Valor;" Sanya Richards-Ross, 2012 London Olympic gold medalist, track and field; David Allen, best-selling author of "Getting Things Done" and productivity expert; and Condolezza Rice, former Secretary of State, via video interview.

Last year, more than 100,000 leaders from 14 countries attended the Leadercast, now in its 14th year. This year, it is expected to reach its largest audience to date.

Chick-fil-A Leadercast will also be shown in Covington on the same date and time at The Church at Covington, located at 11975 Ga. Highway 142 N. in Oxford. Tickets are $75.
