Energize Your Leadership Skills in the New Year

Todd Ashby, Managing Partner of Results Marketing

IA/IL QUAD-CITIES – "The Chick-fil-A Leadercast is about living a life of sincere leadership, in both your personal life and in the community. Last year, a record number of Quad-Citians attended QC Leadercast, and we hope to see even more in 2013. For anyone wishing to forge stronger leadership qualities, this is the perfect opportunity to learn from the world's greatest experts on the topic."

That quote comes from Todd Ashby, Managing Partner of Results Marketing. For the past three years, Results Marketing and select sponsors have been bringing simulcasts of the Chick-fil-A Leadercast to the Quad-Cities area. Leadercast is an annual leadership event broadcast live from Atlanta, Georgia, to audiences in metro areas worldwide.

A video selection of four speakers from the 2012 Leadercast will be presented at the 2013 Chick-fil-A Leadercast Recap Lunch & Learn events, sponsored by Results Marketing and St. Ambrose University. "These internationally known speakers will share exciting insights to energize your leadership skills," said Ashby. "Attendees can watch these enlightening videos and discuss their content with other area professionals. Each of the four sessions will be facilitated by a St. Ambrose faculty member and all attendees will enjoy a delicious Chick-fil-A lunch."

Only 65 seats are available at each Recap Lunch & Learn event, so be sure to register today. The events will be held noon to 1 p.m. on January 4, February 1, March 1, and April 5, at the St. Ambrose University Downtown Education Center, located in the New Ventures Center at 331 W. 3rd St., Davenport, IA 52801. Cost to attend is $15 per session and includes lunch from Chick-fil-A, or you can save by enrolling in all four events for only $45.
