A huge leadership development day is coming to Airdrie on October 12th.

We sat down and chatted with Michelle Neustaedter, the Executive Director with the John Maxwell Team and host of this year's Live2Lead conference taking place at Hampton Inn & Suites.

"Live2Lead is a leadership development experience, and really in my opinion, it's unlike anything else," says Michelle.

This full-day experience will host a variety of big names and influencers. "This year, we're going to be learning from John Maxwell himself, we're also going to be learning from Carly Fiorina; she's the previous CEO of HP and she was the 2016 presidential candidate. We have the best-selling author Daniel Pink, Debra Searle - she's a motivational speaker out of the U.K., and we also will have Tyler Perry - the filmmarker and actor who's going to be teaching us."

Three local speakers will also be at Live2Lead. Airdrie's MLA Angela Pitt will be joining as master of ceremonies, Abe Brown, an executive coach and speaker out of Calgary, and hosting a workshop, Michelle Neustaedter herself.

What is Live2Lead all about? Live2Lead is a workshop that will equip people with the tools they need to move forward and grow as leaders. "Leadership is constantly a journey," says Michelle. "We don't necessarily know what our next step is going to be until we grow beyond where we are, we can't outperform the current quality of thinking that we have. So if we want to become better, we have to develop our quality of thinking and when we go to events like this, we get that opportunity to develop that quality of thinking and to grow ourselves so that we can become better than we are today."

This event will take place at the Airdrie Hampton Inn & Suites on Friday, October 12th from 8AM-5:30PM. You can register at Live2LeadCalgary.com

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Friday, September 28th at 6PM.
