BISMARCK, ND - He brought excitement to the city of Denver, CO, and leadership to a team in desperate need of guidance. When the 2011 season appeared to be a disappointing failure, quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow single-handedly led the Denver Broncos to a division championship and the NFL playoffs. His leadership on and off the field along with his faith in God inspired his teammates and rallied a city and its fan base.
Tebow, along with eight other world-renowned leaders will share their experiences at this year's must-attend 2012 Chick-fil-A Leadercast, to be held in Atlanta, GA, on Friday, May 4, 2012, and broadcast live at the University of Mary, America's Leadership University, in Arno Gustin Hall.
Other speakers joining Tebow at this year's event include:
- Soledad O'Brien, Anchor and special correspondent for CNN
- Patrick Lencioni, Best-selling author and president of The Table Group
- John Maxwell, Leadership expert and best-selling author of "The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership"
- Angela Ahrendts, CEO, Burberry
- Roland Fryer, Professor of economics at Harvard University and CEO of the Education Innovation Laboratory
- Urban Meyer, Head football coach for Ohio State University
- Andy Stanley, Best-selling leadership author and communicator
- Sheena Iyengar, Author of "The Art of Choosing" and world-renowned expert of choice
- Marcus Buckingham, strength strategist, best-selling author and researcher
The Chick-fil-A Leadercast is a one-day leadership training event broadcast live from the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta to approximately 500 host sites throughout the nation, to include the University of Mary in Bismarck. Host sites use the event to build relationships in their communities and offer leadership training to their own teams. The University of Mary has hosted this event for the past several years.
"The Chick-Fil-A Leadercast, held during the first Friday of May, is the one leadership growth opportunity that should not be missed," commented Dave Leingang, executive staff officer at the North Dakota Department of Transportation "The networking opportunities and success stories presented by some of the world's greatest leaders make this one day experience truly unforgettable. If you are looking for a leadership event that will challenge your leadership paradigms, then come to this and learn from the best."
This year's program will focus on the power of choice. The diverse group of internationally-acclaimed authors, leadership experts, and practitioners will share insights to help leaders empower and equip others at work, at home and in the community through his or her choices.

The Chick-fil-A Leadercast began like most great ideas do: with an innovative leader and a simple vision. That leader is John C. Maxwell, and his vision in 2000 was to create a different kind of leadership conference. One that was affordable and accessible to leaders from every background. It wasn't long before that vision became a reality, and in 2000, the Maximum Impact Simulcast was born. GiANT Impact later began producing the event and now has teamed up with Chick-fil-A to bring this world-class leadership content to more leaders than ever before.
In 2010, GiANT Impact celebrated the tenth anniversary of what is now known as
Chick-fil-A Leadercast and what has grown into the premier leader development event for leadership growth at all levels.
