Global Leadership Summit Day 1

global_leadership_100Wow!  What a day, still digesting what we experience at the summit. Dianne & myself (Ashley) along with a couple hundred others heard from the veteran leader Bill Hybels, powerhouse Condoleezza Rice, firecracker Patrick Lencioni, visionary Craig Groeschel and heart-changer John Ortberg today at Ceaderview Church.  

I took a ton of notes & have compiled them into a bullet point summary for each speaker. If you ever have the opportunity to hear any of these guys talk, do it! You will learn so much from their grace, poise & wisdom. It was honour to be able to take in a portion of all they offer.
