For many years now years I've had the privilege to attend the Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit. If I'm honest, in my more youthful days I tended to be cynical about most leadership conferences, but every year I was humbled and rocked by what I got to experience.
These days it is one of my favorite events of the year. I am consistently challenged and moved by the men and women standing on the stage and sharing their hearts and wisdom.
This year I am sitting under the stage at Willow Creek with a group of social media experts, working on getting the word out about the events of the day. I got to join in the fun. I have never tweeted so much in my life.
Here are some of the quotes or thoughts I sent out today as a way of trying to boil down some of the things I will walk away with from this year's Summit.
