LeadingBetter Summit - Leadership Conference in Louisville, KY

Our leadership curriculum
is designed to help participants:

  • Build organizations that are more resilient, innovative, and more able to navigate change and uncertainty.
  • Gain deeper knowledge around interpersonal dynamics, developing high-performance teams, and becoming a leader that people want to follow.
  • Grow your ability to adapt, collaborate, achieve great results, and lead in our new hybrid world.


“Not only was the event fun, but I think it’s a necessary learning experience for colleagues and friends in leadership. It’s a confidence booster, and there were speakers who taught you how to navigate difficult situations between colleagues and friends as well.”

Why Attend?

You can’t evolve as a leader if you don’t break your routine – and the LeadingBetter™ Summit delivers just what you need. This day of learning is designed to push, inspire, and encourage you to think outside of the box. Here are 3 reasons to attend:

#1: You will challenge yourself to think differently about leadership.

Research consistently shows that high-performing leaders and teams embrace conflict and know how to manage it professionally and productively. Emotional intelligence is vital in navigating interpersonal dynamics, especially in our new hybrid workplace. This leadership conference focuses on keynote speakers who build knowledge around these areas and more, providing attendees with tools to better lead successfully.

#2: It’s a great way to invest in yourself and your team.

By encouraging the attendance of your colleagues, you can demonstrate their value and create better culture – improving job satisfaction and increasing innovation and productivity to drive your mission forward.

#3: You’ll meet like-minded changemakers.

Because this event attracts growth-oriented individuals, you’ll enjoy networking that can promote valuable relationships and connections. For those attending this hybrid event virtually, there are plenty of opportunities to connect and interact with others online as well!
