It’s often said that the days go slow, but the years fly by quickly. It’s a true statement that underscores the importance of maximizing every moment and every opportunity to create the life and career you deserve. Commit to improving your skills, learning from the people who have achieved the type of success you wish for yourself, and most importantly, do all of this with an emphasis on collaboration, teamwork, and group performance. The true value that comes from sustained dedication to improving your own professional leadership and performance training will only be discovered when it’s combined with that of your colleagues, staff, and peers who are core team members at the company, organization, agency, department or start-up where your lead and work.
That is a tremendously important message because it’s one of just a few proven factors that have the potential to permanently improve individual professional performance in the pursuit of collective goals.
It’s also the message that will be reinforced throughout the 2017 National Capital Leadership Summit on September 29 at the Hilton in Old Town Alexandria.
I created and curated this conference with support from my team at MindSpring Metro DC. Our goal is to provide the most effective and affordable one-day intensive conference of the season featuring a collective of industry leaders in the fields of personal / professional growth, leadership development, and teamwork and performance.
By combining equal parts instruction and inspiration, the National Capital Leadership Summit will provide attendees with one of the most innovative, dynamic, and accessible leadership and development seminars in the DMV region.
As the Summit approaches, I will share (and my team will amplify) regular updates on the Summit website and the 3 social media outlets where we'll post live, real time coverage throughout the events on September 29.
Here are the 4 links to bookmark and check every few days to stay up-to-date on everything about the National Capital Leadership Summit, including several ways you can participate.
Our attendees are not registering simply to satisfy the rigors of continuing education requirement. Rather, National Capital Leadership Summit attendees are those proactive professionals with a persistent thirst for tips and tools that they can apply immediately to improve performance.
We’ve also created ways to make certain that even those people who aren’t in a leadership position in their current professional endeavor, will have access to the insights and expertise shared at the Summit through an exciting, unprecedented opportunity.
While the vast majority of attendees will be the owners and operators of small to medium-sized businesses, entrepreneurs, and manager, directors, or staff leads in government departments, corporations and nonprofit / charitable organizations - there are also a limited number of slots available to professionals who are currently in search of a job, or making a career transition. We’ve even carved out a bit of space for undergraduate or post-graduate students who are preparing to enter the job market.
They will register like any other attendee, and as such, will get to rub elbows with a room full of business, government and entrepreneurial leaders, while listening to a series of keynote presentations from some of the most dynamic authors, trainers, and thought leaders in the increasingly competitive field of the leadership development and training.
However, in addition to experiencing the conference as any other attendee, those in career transitions and the students will spend part of September 29 either shadowing our communications staff behind-the-scenes, or volunteering to work with my team on an aspect of event production. They can even propose the completion of a small project during the event that showcases their unique skills. We’ll consider any idea if it helps us gather information from attendees, amplify our message using online communication and media tools, or optimize visibility and value for our sponsors and promotional partners.
As you can see, I’m thrilled to share each and every element of the National Capital Leadership Summit with you. Continue to check the website and social media outlets on an ongoing basis! Thank you for your participation!
