Millennium Leadership Conference
As a freshman, I was highly impressed by my first leadership conference at Clark University. The main focus of the event was striving to become tomorrow’s leaders. One of the workshops that I attended was “What you need to know to become tomorrow’s leader today!” The session expressed that leaders are crazy enough to believe that they are able change the world despite what they do or accomplish. Leaders must be able to adapt to their environments and the modifications of them. Listening to consumers is a vital aspect of leadership because they need to be able to serve their desires. Leaders use their emotions to move people and inspire them to strive to follow their example. Leaders are more importantly, not afraid of failure. If one fails once and decides not to try or pursue their goal again, then they will resign at the same position of life that they failed in and will never progress.
There were a few wonderful motivational speakers who spoke at the conference. Domingo Guyton, from Boston Ma, discussed his hardships growing up, to his success in popular music, to his success in gospel music and expressing that we must be positive role models. Then Joshua Fredenburg, who is an entrepreneur and author, preached that leaders must evaluate themselves and their responsibilities. I have met many new people and fellowshipped with the people I already knew in many ways. I felt honored to attend my first conference. The millennium leadership conference was an excellent and fulfilling experience, which is highly recommended.
