About

The L.E.A.D. (Leadership. Engagement. Action. Diversity.) Summit is an opportunity for emerging and established leaders in the Allen County area to participate in professional development workshops centered around the concept of knowledge sharing.

Attendees will have an opportunity to gather in an intimate setting and cultivate deeper partnerships with each other while developing and enhancing skill sets that enrich and advance their impact on organizational culture.

Format

The L.E.A.D. Summit is a one-day conference which includes a variety of concurrent sessions, cross-disciplinary networking opportunities and two keynote speakers (the second to be announced soon). With facilitators drawn from corporate, academia, non-profit, athletics and health care, attendees will cultivate a deeper understanding of how to lead with intentionality. Participants can create their personalized schedule by choosing from various concurrent sessions which best suit their capacity to grow.

Keynote Speaker Daniel Juday
Keynote Speaker: Daniel Juday

Daniel Juday loves traveling, meeting new people, and working to build bridges of understanding and empathy across challenging “divides.”

He deeply believes that all people matter, and he’s spent much of his life working in roles that have allowed him to develop thinking around the nature of education and learning, relationship-building and professional growth.

As the director for the Ohio and Indiana Diversity Councils, Daniel took a fledgling organization and grew its corporate membership ranks by almost 2,000 percent in two years. He now owns and runs his own speaking and consulting business, and works with conference planners, learning and development leaders, nonprofit boards and corporate entities—all in a pursuit to help them grow their leadership impact and make the spaces they influence more inclusive.
