Ten Internationally Acclaimed Leaders to Speak at OBU

Community business leaders can access the knowledge and experience of 10 internationally acclaimed leaders by attending the Maximum Impact Simulcast at the Bailey Business Center on the Oklahoma Baptist University campus in Shawnee on May 8, 2009.

The Maximum Impact Simulcast is a one-day leadership training event broadcast live from Atlanta, Ga., to approximately 500 host sites throughout the nation. Speakers for the event include Tony Blair, John Maxwell, Jack Nicklaus, Bill George, Al Weiss, Linda Kaplan Thaler, Kevin Carroll, Mark Sanborn, Liz Murray and Ernie Johnson.

"The Maximum Impact Simulcast provides extremely valuable leadership insights from world class communicators," said David Hoyt, vice president of Maximum Impact. "It's a rare opportunity to hear these experts within your own community and simultaneously develop business relationships with other local leaders. It's a must-attend event for people in all stages of their leadership journey."

The idea for the Maximum Impact Simulcast was conceived more than nine years ago by Dr. John C. Maxwell, New York Times best-selling author and speaker. He wanted to combine his influential voice in the community with his desire to reach leaders at the heart level.

What started out as a half day, classroom-format event with John Maxwell teaching has since become a full day, experiential conference featuring 10 authors, leadership experts and practitioners.

The 10 speakers will speak on subjects such as leading in difficult times, converging people and purpose, building strong teams by understanding and embracing change, overcoming personal and professional adversity, utilizing the power of passion and creativity and balancing the needs of customers, employees and company shareholders.

"The Maximum Impact Simulcast is a rich source of ideas, insights, and strategies for truly effective leadership," said Ed Emma, president and COO of Jockey International, Inc. "The event serves to translate the most complex leadership dilemmas into basic principles and memorable lessons that we can apply in our daily work."
