Leadercast will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, May 9, at The Mission Church in Hammond.

The Leadercast event is broadcast live from Atlanta to sites around the world.

This year’s speaker lineup includes Andy Stanley, leadership author and communicator; Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel laureate and human rights activist live from Cape Town, South Africa; Malcolm Gladwell, journalist and author of “The Tipping Point” and “Outliers;” Randall Wallace, screenwriter, director, producer and songwriter (“Braveheart,” “Secretariat”); Bill McDermott, CEO of SAP; Laura Schroff, former ad sales executive and author of “An Invisible Thread;” Dr. Henry Cloud, clinical psychologist and leadership consultant; Simon Sinek, author of “Start with Why” and leadership expert; and Laura Bush, former first lady of the U.S. via video interview.

Last year, more than 100,000 leaders from 14 countries attended Leadercast.

“This is a phenomenal and special opportunity to become the best that you can be and to learn more about leading others to do the same,” Pastor Kathy Pedeaux, of The Mission Church, said.

This year’s theme — “Beyond You” — challenges leaders to focus outward rather than inward.
