LGE_presentedby_white bg_130rgbThe 2016 Leadership Louisville Luncheon will gather the region’s most influential leaders in business, government, nonprofits and civic engagement. Join us for Louisville’s best networking lunch of the year as we learn from the mayor of one of the nation’s most vibrant cities.

Keynote Speaker: Mayor Mitchell Landrieu of New Orleans


Mitch Landrieu, Mayor of New Orleans, is the guest mayor at the 2016 Leadership Louisville Luncheon.

Not every city is lucky enough to have a Mardi Gras or a Derby, a Bourbon Street or a Whiskey Row. So how do we make the most of it? How do we use our city’s colorful heritage to create a more prosperous future?

This August, don’t miss the chance to hear from the driving force behind New Orleans’ tremendous economic revitalization, Mayor Mitchell Landrieu.

As part of this year’s Leadership Louisville Luncheon, Landrieu will discuss successes and share insights on encouraging entrepreneurship, expanding technology and leveraging authenticity for lasting economic success. For decades, Landrieu has played a pivotal role in attracting tourism and talent to his home state of Louisiana. As lieutenant governor, he led the effort to rebuild the state’s tourism industry, launching a Cultural Economy Initiative to grow jobs in Louisiana’s culture, music, food and film industries. Now, under his leadership as mayor, New Orleans has been named the top metropolitan area for economic recovery, a model for school reform and, most recently, a hub for high-tech jobs and entrepreneurship. With unique, colorful cultures and storied civic traditions, Louisville and New Orleans have quite a bit in common – and plenty of room to grow.

Reserve your seat to learn how we, as leaders, can make the most of Louisville’s character, straight from the city that does it best.


Louisville Gas and Electric Company is again supporting the Leadership Louisville Luncheon as the presenting sponsor.
