Live2Lead leadership conference comes to Jamaica for the first time

CEO of Creative Brands and Concepts Limited, Erica McKenzie

The John Maxwell Company’s Live2Lead annual leadership conference will grace Jamaican shores for the first time in merely four weeks. Happening on October 9 at the Terra Nova All-Suite Hotel in Kingston, it promises to be a thought-provoking engagement.

Erica McKenzie, CEO of Creative Brands and Concepts Limited, said her company is ecstatic to be able to bring this world-class event to Jamaica. “Creative Brands and Concepts Limited and our partners are excited to organize an international event of this caliber with the world’s best thought leaders,” she said.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic and the protocols established to eliminate the spread of the virus, have forced the organizers to take on a different format for the seventh staging of the conference. The usual face to face international event has now transitioned to a virtual engagement, but has allowed for limited in person congregation at the Terra Nova All-Suite Hotel.

Despite the changes, McKenzie, who is also a certified John Maxwell coach, speaker and trainer, says the event continues to be as impactful as the previous stagings.

Breathes life into new leadership

“There’s a lot to gain from Live2Lead Jamaica. We will lead with powerful leadership teachings, a bonus breakout and networking session and activities throughout the day,” she said.

Speaking of the benefits of Live2Lead Jamaica, McKenzie noted that the leadership conference breathes new life into the leadership development of current and aspiring leaders across all sectors. It also equips you with practical steps and new tools to create intentional plans for personal and professional growth.

“We will keep you safe as all protocols surrounding covid-19 will be observed, if you’re joining us face to face.”

The event planning powerhouse also believes that this is a perfect opportunity to learn from elite thinkers, impact your sphere of influence and make meaningful connections.
