Bono At The 2006 Leadership Summit

He will be doing a videotaped interview..




http://www.willowcreek.com/events/le...p/speakers.asp


We are excited to announce the newly-confirmed speakers for The Leadership Summit 2006. This year, Bill Hybels will be joined by:

• Bono, Lead Singer of the rock group U2 and TIME Magazine's 2005 Person of the Year
• Wayne Cordeiro - Senior Pastor, New Hope Christian Fellowship in Honolulu
• Patrick Lencioni - Founder & President of The Table Group, Inc.
• James Meeks - Senior Pastor, Salem Baptist Church in Chicago
• Ashish Nanda - Associate Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School
• Peg Neuhauser - President, PCN Associates
• Andy Stanley - Senior Pastor, North Point Community Church in Atlanta

Bill Hybels, founding and senior pastor of Willow Creek Community Church, is internationally known for his relevant, practical, and insightful Bible-based teaching and leadership. He is the author of more than 20 books and the founder of the now worldwide Leadership Summit. He provides strategic leadership for all the combined Willow ministries (including all of its Regional Campuses and the Willow Creek Association).

Bill has been married for over 30 years to his wife Lynne and has two adult children, Shauna and Todd. As is tradition, Bill will be opening and closing The Leadership Summit 2006. His teachings are inspirational, biblical, and authentic. Bill believes to the core of his being that the local church is the hope of the world, and in order for the church to succeed, it must be well led. Bill founded The Leadership Summit in 1995 and each year he becomes more passionate about a yearly gathering of leaders to infuse biblical truth, calling, and accountability into one another.

This year, Bill will open the Summit by identifying different cycles of leadership development and the unique demands this places on a leader to make adjustments to his or her approach along the way. Bill will close the Summit by addressing how a leader inspires people and how that inspiration is contagious. As no one else can do, Bill will motivate people with the cause of leadership and the mission of the local church.

Bono was born Paul David Hewson in Ballymun, Dublin on May 10, 1960. He met the Edge, Larry Mullen, and Adam Clayton at school, and in 1978 the band U2 was formed. Acknowledged as one of the best live acts in the world, U2 has sold over 130 million albums and won numerous awards for their music including 14 Grammies and 12 MTV Video Music Awards.

Following Live Aid in 1985, a 16-hour concert to raise relief for Ethiopian famine victims, Bono spent a summer working at a feeding camp in Ethiopia. He began to use his fame and influence to draw attention to extreme poverty in Africa. Since then, Bono has mercilessly lobbied world leaders in campaigning for the cancellation of third world debt and more money to fight the AIDS emergency in Africa. More recently, he has been working on trade justice for the world's poorest countries.

In 2002, he co-founded DATA - Debt, AIDS, Trade, Africa. Last year, Bono played an instrumental role in organizing Live 8, a one-day concert held in ten locations worldwide, and supporting the ONE Campaign to promote awareness and advocacy for debt cancellation, aid, and trade reform in the fight against global poverty. For his efforts toward justice and equality, Bono was awarded TIME Magazine's Person of the Year alongside Bill and Melinda Gates at the end of 2005.

Bono lives in Dublin with his wife Ali and their four children.

Bill Hybels will talk with Bono in an exclusive video-taped interview. They met through their work on the AIDS emergency in Africa.

Wayne Cordeiro is senior pastor of New Hope Christian Fellowship in Honolulu, Hawaii. New Hope, on the island of O'ahu, is Pastor Wayne's eleventh pioneer work. Since opening its doors in September 1995, New Hope has grown in weekend attendance to over 11,000 with 8,500 of those being first time decisions.

Today, New Hope continues to build and train leaders and pastors through the Pacific Rim Bible College, New Hope International Ministries, and the Hawaii Leadership Practicum. New Hope O'ahu also hosts their annual Doing Church as a Team conference. Wayne is an author, songwriter, and highly sought after speaker. He has authored seven books in addition to releasing three music CDs. His speaking schedule takes him around the state of Hawaii weekly as well as around the continental United States, into Canada, and around the world. He is a church planter at heart and has helped to start 80 churches in the Pacific Rim and beyond including Hawaii, Montana, the Philippines, Japan, Myanmar, as well as Helsinki.

Together with his wife, Anna, Wayne has three children, Amy, Aaron, and Abigail.

New Hope Christian Fellowship is a long-standing member of the WCA, and Wayne has spoke at numerous Willow events including The Leadership Summit. His unique perspective in 2006 is to share his recent pain of ministry fatigue resulting in a personal breakdown. Through his experience he will help you identify warning signals of burnout and ways to create or rebuild a sustainable life.

Patrick Lencioni is the founder and president of The Table Group, Inc., a specialized management-consulting firm focused on executive team-building and organizational health. He has been described by The One-Minute Manager's Ken Blanchard as "fast defining the next generation of business thinkers."

Patrick's passion for organizations and teams is reflected in his writing, speaking, and consulting. He is the author of five business books and has been featured in numerous publications such as Fast Company, INC. Magazine, USA Today, Entrepreneur, Drucker Foundation's Leader to Leader, and The Harvard Business Review. When he is not writing, Patrick consults executives and speaks to world class organizations where he addresses thousands of leaders each year. Clients who have engaged his services include New York Life, Microsoft, Charles Schwab, Amazon.com, Sam's Club, Cisco Systems, the U.S. Military Academy, West Point, and FedEx.

Prior to founding his firm, Patrick worked for Sybase, Oracle, and Bain & Company. He also served on the National Board of Directors for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America from 2000-2003.

Patrick has spoken at many WCA events, the first being The Leadership Summit 2003. He will speak on the ever present reality of conflict in organizations and how leaders deal with this struggle. An engaging speaker, Patrick will highlight the correlation between thriving organizations and teams that effectively interact and communicate.

Reverend (Senator) James Meeks started preaching when he was 17 years old and has been pastoring for the past 23 years. He graduated from Eugene Bible College, and, with a strong conviction to serve and help people, Rev. Meeks established the Salem Baptist Church in 1985 with 200 members. Salem, located in Chicago's Roseland community, now has more than 20,000 members - making it one of the fastest growing churches in the nation.

In 1998, Rev. Meeks led the rally to "dry up" the Roseland community by effectively collecting votes to close 26 liquor stores. Seven years later, Pastor Meeks led Salem in the construction of the House of Hope, a $50 million, 10,000+ seat Community and Worship Center, on Chicago's far south side. The facility is the largest worship center in the Chicago-land area and among the largest in the nation.

Rev. Meeks is a powerful visionary with long and growing list of accomplishments. An established leader in civil rights and diplomacy, in 2003 Meeks became an Illinois state senator, representing five of the poorest communities in Illinois.

He has been married to his wife, Jamell, for 25 years and is the father of four children.

Because of his tremendous leadership ability, Rev. Meeks and Bill Hybels share a growing friendship and a passion for racial reconciliation. At The Leadership Summit 2006, Meeks will address the "enemies" of a growing church. His teaching will flow out of his wealth of experience as a leader in the local church, education as well as in socioeconomic and political circles. Expect to be challenged and inspired!

Ashish Nanda, a member of the Negotiations, Organizations, and Markets faculty team at the Harvard Business School, teaches the executive education programs Leadership in Professional Service Firms and Changing the Game. For many years, he has been teaching the Willow Creek case study at Harvard with Bill Hybels. His expertise focuses on management of service organizations. Nanda also teaches on Leadership Values and Decision Making and General Management in the Harvard MBA curriculum and doctoral seminars on Joint Ventures.

Nanda has taught in executive education programs on management of professional service organizations, general management, business ethics, negotiations, and international management in U.S.A., U.K., India, Switzerland, Canada, France, Brazil, Venezuela, and Colombia. He has consulted in a variety of fields from law and investment banking to management and technology consulting as well human resource, advertising, and public relations firms. Prior to coming to Harvard, he worked for several years as an executive with the Tata group, one of India's oldest, largest, and most respected business conglomerates.

Nanda is married to his wife, Shubha, and they have a 10-year-old son named Pranav.

In an interview with Bill Hybels, Nanda will discuss, among other leadership issues, the "the risky business of hiring stars." With the battle for the best and brightest heating up, organizations including churches often look for first rate talent in the ranks of other organizations because developing your own people is more difficult and takes more time and money. Nanda will talk about the challenges and risks associated with hiring great leaders from the outside versus developing leaders from within. The results of his research are striking!

Peg Neuhauser has worked for over twenty years as a management and organizational consultant, specializing in the areas of conflict management, organizational culture and avoiding burnout. In 1984, she established her own company and works with clients in many industries including health care, high tech, finance, and publishing.

Neuhauser completed studies in the United States and England with an M.A. in psychology and undergraduate work in sociology. She worked as an internal consultant for Hospital Corporation of America developing services and programs for both corporate and hospital clients. In addition to working as a designer, trainer, and consultant, she also managed financial systems conversions that involved training and consultation in technical and accounting fields.

At this year's Summit, Neuhauser will speak as an expert on organizational issues. She will address the dynamics and factions that naturally develop between various groups within organizations because of their different perspectives. In the marketplace, sales leaders don't always see eye to eye with accounting or manufacturing leaders. It's not unusual for union reps to be at odds with management. The church is not insulated from these kinds of conflicts within its own well-intended groups either! For example, evangelists don't naturally approach ministry from the same perspective as those in charge of discipleship. Board members often see reality differently than staff members. And dare we say it? Pastors and artists often bring opposing viewpoints to planning services!

Neuhauser will help all of us deal with the reality of these internal "tribal wars." She'll give us practical strategies to help us better communicate and bridge the gaps that often create destructive conflict between various people groups in our churches.

Andy Stanley is the founder of North Point Ministries (NPM) and senior pastor of North Point Community Church, Buckhead Church, and Browns Bridge Community Church. Each Sunday, over 15,000 adults attend worship services at one of these NPM campuses.

North Point Ministries began in 1995 and continues today under its two-fold mission. Their first goal is to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ by creating environments where people are encouraged and equipped to pursue intimacy with God, community with insiders, and influence with outsiders. The second part is to provide information and resources to church leaders and organizations interested in learning the processes they have developed for creating relevant environments.

Andy is successfully leading a fantastic, fast growing church while still remaining focused on his God-given strategy. Currently, we're asking Andy to address the complex challenge of keeping a church on mission as it deals with the intense pressures that naturally arise in an expanding ministry.

Andy is a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary. He lives in Alpharetta, Georgia with his wife, Sandra, and their three children, Andrew, Garrett, and Allie.

North Point Community Church has been a part of the WCA for many years. Andy has taught at Willow numerous times and this will be his second time speaking at The Leadership Summit.

Thanks for the update, one4u2.

I found it kind of hard to believe that Bono would give up some of his summer with his family to attend this, or any other, event.

I like the idea of Bono taking some time for himself and family this summer.

That must be a screw-up because they went right after the Conspiracy of Hope Tour in early June of 1986.

Some of my co-workers are attending this conference this weekend here in Vancouver and will be seeing everything via sattelite. I'm so jealous!

I only found out about the fact that we were able to go late yesterday afternoon, and it was obviously too late to sign up, etc. Damnation!! If I hadn't been on vacation last week, I would have been able to go.

Oh well, I'm sure I'll hear all about it on Monday.

I was going to go to a church 20 minutes away that was sponsoring the seminar, but the registration was very expensive.
Maybe someone can get verbiage of the interview?
