"The Leadercast is a rare opportunity to hear from some of the foremost opinion shapers of our day all at one time. I have found past Leadercasts to be an extremely important investment of my time and am looking forward to bringing the 2013 Leadercast to our own campus on May 10," said Michelle Searer, vice president for enrollment management and university marketing at Malone.

This year, the program will focus on the idea of simply leading. Our lives are full of things that we think will grow our businesses and increase our influence. What if there was potential impact in simplifying our lives so that our leadership could thrive? Leading in a complex world requires simplicity to cut through the clutter. This diverse group of internationally-acclaimed authors, leadership experts and practitioners will share insights to help leaders learn how to Simply Lead.
