ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Mar 31, 2015) - Leadercast will host the largest one-day convergence of leaders in the world with more than 100,000 participants on May 8. Attendees will hear from political, cultural and business pioneers including Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, All Pro football player Peyton Manning, renown author and speaker Seth Godin, former Mayor of New York City, Rudy Giuliani, CEO of SAP AE Bill McDermott and more.

Hosted by Bill and Giuliana Rancic, the theme of Leadercast 2015 is "The Brave Ones," focusing on what it means to lead in such a way that creates bold cultures, builds faithful employees and produces high achievement.

Leadercast exists to create Leaders Worth Following -- individuals who will inspire and ignite their organizations, communities and families to succeed. The event is broadcast live from Gwinnett Arena in Atlanta to hundreds of sites around the world. More than 130,000 leaders from 35 countries attended Leadercast in 2014. Now in its 16th year, the conference has expanded its viewing capabilities to allow those who can't attend a physical site the ability to watch On Demand. In addition to the ability to view the event streaming live in four languages (English, Spanish, Mandarin and Portuguese), On Demand subscribers will have access to the talks for 10 days following the event.

"We want to create an experience that fuels innovative leadership," explains Luke Dooley, Director of Events. "We consider it a privilege to serve more than 100,000 attendees through Leadercast Live this year. Through this experience, we believe participants worldwide will be challenged to live and lead more courageously because of the unique content from these world-class leaders."
