The 2nd day of the Willow Creek Assoc. Global Leadership Summit is on… Today’s list of speakers include:
Jeff Manion, pastor of Ada Bible Church
Terri Kelly, President & CEO of W. L. Gore & Associates (the makers of GORE-TEX(R) products
Daniel H. Pink, author & former White House speechwriter
Blake Mycoskie, Founder & Chief Shoe-giver of TOMS Shoes
Jack Welch, former Chairman & CEO of GE, and finally,
T.D. Jakes, pastor, The Potter House
I’m especially interested in the Kelly, Mycoskie and Welch sessions. The last time I heard Welch was around 1998 while in college. Great leader of GE and will probably go down in the history books as one of the best leaders of modern business. It may not seem like you are “getting” much somedays at conferences, but you always walk away with one or two nuggets of truth that you can use in your personal life or corporate life.

Attending a leadership conference hosted by LCBC by telecast of the Willow Creek Association Global Leadership Summit. There are about 450-500 people here, watching a big screen. It is very interesting that the GLS has been telecasted for 15 years to remote sites.
Today’s speakers will be Bill Hybels, Willow Creek Community Church; Jim Collins, author; Christine Caine, Founder A21 Campaign & pastor at Hillsong Church; Tony Dungy, ex-Head Coach of the Ind. Colts turned NBC Analyst; Adam Hamilton, UMC pastor; Dr. Peter Zhao Xiao, Leading Chinese Economist & professor at Univ. of Science & Tech. In Beijing; and finally, Andy Stanley, pastor at North Point Church.
It’ll be a pretty packed day full of knowledge. Definitely a change-up from the normal day’s routine. Love the fact that there are this many people here:
