News & Opinion: The Leadership and Influence Summit - A FREE Online Event

By: 800-CEO-READ @ 6:29 PM – Filed under: Leadership & Strategy

We've talked a lot in these offices about how the high cost of author events and business conferences makes it difficult for burgeoning leaders, business owners and bootsrappers—those that could really benefit from the ideas, information and insights that are exchanged there—to attend. And, though we've tried, we haven't figured out how to crack that problem.

But Daniel Decker and the good folks putting on The Leadership and Influence Summit have, and we are excited to support them in their gargantuan efforts. So, what is The Leadership and Influence Summit?

It’s a free online event taking place on November 3rd & 4th, featuring video messages from up to 30 leading authorities on how to maximize leadership and influence effectiveness. Each presenters video will be between 6-20 minute in length and will equip you with knowledge and insight that you can use to become a better leader and influencer. If you can’t make the main 2 day event, sign up anyways and we’ll send you a link to watch the replay!
And, to boot, they’ll provide you with free leadership resources as downloadable tools to help you apply what you’ve learned.

The presenters list is impressive, bordering on the completely insane: Robert Cialdini, Keith Ferrazzi, Jon Gordon, Mark Sanborn, Tim Sanders, Adrian Gostick, Bob Sutton, Jim Kouzes, Susan Scott, Kevin Carroll, Nancy Duarte, Charlene Li, Marshall Goldsmith, Scott Klososky, Chris Brogan, Erwin McManus, Steve Farber, David McNally, Jeremie Kubicek, Tom Ziglar (son of Zig Ziglar), Dr. Tim Irwin, Tony Alessandra, Dr. Tim Elmore, Stan Slap, Scott Eblin, Joe Tye, Kevin Eikenberry and more.

And, just to reiterate... this is free. Quite a few of the presenters are authors of one of The 100 Best Business Books of All Time, and many of them have published on ChangeThis. I've gathered some of those resources below to get you started, but nothing can compare to seeing this concentration of intelligence live, so sign up for The Leadership and Influence Summit today.
