Join Us At The Conference!
We are excited to invite you to be part of the Mille Lacs Corporate Ventures 2017 National Leadership Development Conference.
About Our Conference
We're excited to welcome back last year's attendees and invite new leaders to the 2nd Annual National Leadership Development Conference. This year's theme is Discover Your Potential – Embrace Your Leadership Legacy.
To be a consistent, engaged leader, you must stay committed, pay attention to detail, develop and encourage your employees all while staying focused on your company’s core goals. That’s sometimes easier said than done.
Without practicing those qualities, daily tasks can cloud our dedicated sense of direction, causing us to lose momentum. It happens to the best of us. You have the potential to be the best leader you can be. Some of the world’s greatest business leaders failed many times before they discovered the importance of their own potential and how to put it into play.
This year’s conference is here to help you discover that potential and give you the knowledge on how to embrace – and live – your leadership legacy.
Thomas Edison once said, “If we all did the things we were capable of doing we would literally astound ourselves.” So, let’s get ready to astound ourselves. As you prepare for this conference, take a minute to realize your potential and how you’ll apply that to your leadership skills. We have an exciting conference lined up for you this year and can’t wait to see you there.

I highly recommend the National Leadership Development Conference (NLDC) in Hinckley MN. I attend many conferences and was very impressed by the quantity and quality of speakers that the NLDC hosted. Most conferences have one or two keynotes at best; the NLDC had keynote-caliber speakers consistently throughout each day. In fact, many speakers led break-out sessions, giving attendees an opportunity for a deeper-dive in their materials. I left the conference feeling refreshed and ready to implement the many professional and personal take-way's I learned. I firmly believe that any person, regardless of age or occupation, would find value in attending a future NLDC.

Out of all the conferences I’ve attended, the one held by Grand Casino was tops! They are able to secure first-class "blow your mind" speakers that not everyone has the connections or resources to hire. This conference is for every employee and every business! I so appreciate Grand Casino sharing their knowledge and means of success with local, national, and international businesses. I will attend every year to get the best business education available.

Welcoming, motivating and engaging! The 2016 National Leadership Development Conference: Leadership Driving Innovation falls as one of the top three conferences that I have attended throughout my 21 years of being a professional educator. The conference sessions were informative, well-planned and coordinated. As a vendor and participant, I came back to my institution excited to share my experience and look forward to attending the 2017 conference!

The Grand Casino Leadership Conference was excellent! The conference provided a number of great speakers covering various topics for all levels of business. It is great to hear this high caliber of speakers that many small businesses would not have the opportunity to experience. It is very affordable training for all types of business. It is also great networking with individuals from all parts of the country. I am really looking forward to the 2017 conference!

"Mille Lacs Corporate Ventures hosted a stellar line-up of speakers in 2016 that provided participants with plenty of insights for professional and personal development, as well as plenty of laughs! The variety and notoriety of the keynote and breakout speakers was second to none, especially considering the low cost to attend. I would highly recommend this conference for both aspiring and seasoned leaders. If 2017 is anything like last year, attendees will leave feeling inspired and empowered to apply the many practical and meaningful leadership concepts. The built in networking times were a great value-added part of the conference!"

“The Leadership Conference at Grand Casino was worth the time and money invested! It was filled with many actionable takeaways, ah-ha moments, and invaluable networking with the attendees and surprisingly the speakers. It is a rare a conference where you have the opportunity to connect one on one with the speakers over lunch, at dinner or between break-out sessions throughout the day. The quality of speakers and topics was well planned. The staff at Grand Casino that were a part of this event did a fabulous job organizing everything and making me feel welcome and a part of the Grand Casino family! I will be back in 2017!”
