A week ago today I had the honor of speaking at the Chick-fil-A Leadercast, and let me tell you: it was phenomenal. The participation of Chick-fil-A Restaurants added so much value to what was already a great conference.
If you follow me on Twitter, you might have seen what I posted on that day. But mine was only one voice. Thousands of others weighed in on Twitter, which is turning out to be an exceptional resource for conferences and events.
How? To connect participants worldwide, the organizers created a Twitter “hashtag” (kind of a label) for all Tweets about the conference: #cfaleadercast. If your Tweet included that hashtag, it was automatically included. The conversation could be searched and indexed and even watched live on that day on various Twitter applications. To read for yourself what people found most inspiring while the conference was going on – and afterward – click here (a simple Twitter search for #cfaleadercast).
For more resources, check out the official Leadercast site:
Here you can find downloads, speaker bios, videos from the event, and more.
Finally, I’d like to share with you a video of the opening, which I found incredibly inspiring. The young lady doing spoken-word poetry is Amena Brown, a poet and speaker. I was delighted to get to meet her that day, and I hope her words speak to you.
