Tim Tebow is coming to Atlanta to serve as one of the featured speakers at the Chick-fil-A Leadercast 2012, a leadership seminar.
The May 4 event will be held at the Georgia World Congress Center downtown, and broadcast live to numerous satellite locations.
Other Leadercast speakers will include Tebow’s former college coach Urban Meyer, Burberry CEO Angela Ahrendts, authors John Maxwell and Pastor Andy Stanley and CNN’s Soledad O’Brien.
The goal of the event is “to be the can’t-miss leadership development event that is both affordable and accessible to all leaders throughout North America and around the world.”
Here is the Leadercast web site for full details.
Tebow and Maxwell also will appear at at May 2 event at 12Stone Church in Lawrenceville. The two will discuss sports, leadership and the Great Commission – Jesus’ instruction to the disciples to spread his teachings. See this site for full details.
Tebow has kept sportwriters busy in the NFL off-season with his trade from the Denver Broncos to the New York Jets. New York scribes have eagerly welcomed their newsworthy new star, chronicling his outings (he saw “Wicked” on Saturday) and wondering about which red carpet events he might grace.
A Sunday New York Times story speculated that Tebow’s strong faith and beliefs “might not exactly endear him to some of the people who control the guest lists at the film and theater premieres, club events and fashion shows that make up a huge part of the city’s social scene,” although an accompanying photo showed him at a Vanity Fair party with actress Jennifer Westfeldt and actor Jon Hamm, known as Don Draper on ”Mad Men.”
