Lead365 Opening Session

What does it mean to “explore, engage and evolve?”  These three words represent the sequence, content and energy presented in a high-tech and highly interactive conference kick-off.   You will feel the unique energy of Lead365 while being introduced to the powerful conference theme and a national treasure house of practitioners, researchers and professional speakers called “The Faculty.”  More about this opening session will be added in the weeks ahead.

Welcome Reception Outdoor Patio

Sunshine, smiles and conversation awaits you at the Opening Reception/Dinner. Don’t worry about dinner, this heavy reception gets the job done while allowing you to continue getting to know other conference goers and faculty members.  This is a wonderful opportunity to network, exchanges contact information and enjoy the beautiful Orlando sunshine.

BLOCK 1 – 4


Networking Boxed Lunch

Not a fan of keynote speakers over lunch while you are trying to relax? Either are we!  This one hour break allows for casual conversations, movement, sunshine (or not) and the opportunity to meet people or take a “mental break.”  Boxed lunches are available for all conference participants to take out to the patio tables or venture poolside.  Enjoy the sunshine. Even if it rains, you can be on the “dry side” of the large glass windows next to the patio. If you want to take advantage of the “Questions of Leadership” on the side of the boxed lunches to generate conversation, use them! If not, feel welcome to simply “chill.”

Networking Boxed Lunch on the Lawn

Here it is — Day 3!  You most likely know more people than you arrived with, right?  Another boxed lunch on the patio (or poolside) provides either a social and networking opportunity, or another “mental break” and time for relaxation.  Even if it rains, you can be on the “dry side” of the large glass windows next to the patio. If you want to take advantage of the “Questions of Leadership” on the side of the boxed lunches to generate conversation, use them! If not, feel welcome to simply “chill.”


Professional Round Table Lunch

As a professional or graduate student, there have been many opportunities to socialize and get to know one another. This informal lunch is another chance to sit with colleagues, researchers and speakers to discuss best practices, topics of interest, challenges or successes.  So, grab your boxed lunch and make your way to the designated location.


Closing Session… But, you’ll have to wait for more of the details…

 

Greatness is rarely a solo accomplishment. Making a difference for the right reasons often requires support, encouragement and the ability to have “laser sharp” focus. This powerful session brings together lessons learned in three days that will forever change who you are, what you do and how you do it.

As part of this final event, you will also be treated to a multi-media “look back” at your conference experience and be recognized by The (entire) Faculty.  As you depart, stop and pick up your personalized “Certificates of Completion” by school delegation. Each certificate is personally signed and contains the logos of our partnering associations.

Now is the time to EXPLOREENGAGEEVOLVE. Now is the time to continue the conversations with like-minded people, work collaboratively back on campus, and continuously strive to make the world a better place.
