RICHMOND, Va Nov 3, 2015 – - Strategic Solutions of Virginia, LLC (SSVA) aspires to make a positive impact on the way that leadership is portrayed in local businesses by hosting an annual conference that focuses on re-thinking modern-day leadership. The event, which took place Thursday, October 22, 2015, combined live speakers with a re-broadcast of interviews and speeches from Leadercast, a worldwide leadership conference focused on building “Leaders Worth Following.”
The original Leadercast event was broadcast live from Atlanta, GA to hundreds of sites around the world, including Richmond, VA. This year’s speaker lineup included:
• Andy Stanley, Leadership author and communicator
• Malala Yousafzai, Nobel Laureate; Founder of The Malala Fund
• Ed Catmull, President of Pixar & Walt Disney Animation Studios
• Seth Godin, Innovative Thinker & Best-Selling Author
• Rudy Giuliani, 107th Mayor of New York City (1993-2001)
• CMDR Rorke Denver, Navy Seal Commander & Author
• Bill McDermott, CEO of SAP AG
• Aja Brown, Mayor, City of Compton
By partnering with Leadercast, SSVA was able to bring amazing content to the Richmond area by weaving together the beautiful, epic messages of the day with live, local speakers, leading to an experience that is both inspiring and so essentially relevant.
This year’s local speakers were true heroes who were able to speak to the 2015 theme of The Brave Ones, by recounting their life stories and how they used their harrowing experiences to instill leadership qualities within themselves. Dr. Matthew Bartholomew told of his most notable act of heroism: rescuing a drowning woman from her car that was slowly sinking in a frozen pond. The other guest, former Navy SEAL John McGuire, founder of SEAL Team Physical Training, explained how his time as a Navy SEAL has enabled him to create a new style of leadership training, combing physicality with positive risk taking, increased morale, and collaborative functioning.
Attended by Richmond area executives, SSVA’s Leaadercast event proved to be a real success. “It is one of the single most consolidated sources of leadership that I know of,” said host Jay Strickland, Co-founder of SSVA. “In almost every aspect of our daily lives we are presented with moments that offer opportunities for leadership. Whether those moments take the form of a chance to coach a co-worker or a simple conversation with a family member, we all share a common desire to make it count. By recognizing these moments and being prepared, we can all lead.”
