About Our Conference

Leaders succeed with Purpose,
Praise and Progress!

We’re excited to welcome you to the 4th annual National Leadership Development Conference in Hinckley, Minnesota! Over the last few years, we have helped attendees discover their own potential, as well as the potential in others. This year, we’ll shift our focus to help you increase productivity, profits, and your own prosperity.

Think about your organization, from frontline staff to management, it’s full of diversity, isn’t it? No employee is alike. So let us ask you this, how do you take that diversity and shine light on it? We want to help you improve morale, reduce employee turnover, improve innovation, and empower individuals and teams. Each employee brings a special skill to the organization. If you can encourage and motivate employees to practice their individual skills and reach desired goals, change within the organization’s culture will achieve success. But don’t forget, progress is best sustained through cheering and rewards, it’s important to always encourage employees on the road to success.

This all starts with you at the 2019 National Leadership Development Conference. The conference will give you the necessary tools to create an organization of productive, committed employees who love what they do and ultimately want to be part of the overall success!

Conference Testimonials

Lori Higgins

Metro North Chamber of Commerce President

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.

Director of Extended Learning UTTC

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!

As a professional speaker I have had the privilage to attend hundreds of conferences. Without a doubt, the lineup of presenters and information offered at the Mille Lacs Leadership Conference is as good as it gets. One should make every effort to attend this outstanding event.

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!”
