Our conversation today with Guy Curtis, Director of Marketing for Laurel Ridge Community College and Carlene Hurdle, Director of Corporate Training for Laurel Ridge Workforce Solutions focused on the details for Leadercast 2022 – The One Thing. The live rebroadcast will be hosted at both Laurel Ridge campuses later this month.

Leadercast is a one-of-a-kind event hosted live this year on May 4, 2022 in Cincinnati (where Carlene attended.) It is also simulcast around the globe that day as well as offered afterwards as on-demand broadcasts. Each event includes original content from the world’s best leaders, innovators, and teachers. Ten of the world’s most influential and acclaimed leaders shared the stage for one day to answer the same question: What is the one thing that makes a leader worth following?

Laurel Ridge Workforce Solutions will host an on-demand live rebroadcast of this event at each of their campuses. You will learn how to improve your own leadership skills and also have the opportunity to network with other leaders in your area.

Carly explained these local events offer excellent networking opportunities and she’s seen great relationships begin to form throughout the duration of the event. There are facilitated exercises to share experiences with others, get you out of your seat, and reflecting on concepts you want to apply.

While the in-person event is ideal, they are also offering a virtual option as well. The Middletown campus of Laurel Ridge Community College will host the rebroadcast event on Thursday, June 16 from 8:30am – 3:30pm. The Fauquier campus will host the event on Thursday, June 24 from 8:30am – 3:30pm. Registration details can be found here:

Winchester Book Gallery will be at both events to offer the latest leadership titles and speaker’s books.

Carlene reminded us that your job title doesn’t always determine whether you’re a leader but your willingness to grow and positively impact those around you does. So, she encouraged anyone who’s interested in leadership concepts, becoming a leader in their career, at their church, in their personal lives, etc. to consider attending.

The leadership learning and growth won’t stop when you leave the campus that day. Carly told us about post-event resources that will be offered to attendees and reminded us about their various tiered leadership programs, such as Leadership Basecamp & Leadership Institute.
