By Eric Reinhardt (


WATERTOWN, N.Y. — The Greater Watertown – North Country (GWNC) Chamber of Commerce will serve as a virtual host for the 7th annual Live2Lead conference.

Live2Lead is a leadership and personal-growth event broadcasting live from Atlanta Georgia, on Oct. 9.

The GWNC Chamber is partnering with chamber member Barb Stone, founder of Build Your Path LLC, on the event.

Stone is a member of Duluth, Georgia–based John Maxwell Company, which developed the annual leadership gathering. Live2Lead was created to “share leadership principles and personal growth techniques to empower others to impact their sphere of influence,” per a GWNC Chamber news release.

This year, virtual attendees will hear from leadership experts from a variety of industries. The 2020 speaker lineup includes Maxwell; Kat Cole, COO and president of Atlanta, Georgia–based FOCUS Brands; entertainer and TV host Steve Harvey; Alan Mulally, former CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes and former CEO and president of Ford Motor Company; and author and pastor Craig Groeschel.

Registration for Live2Lead 2020 costs $79 per individual and includes three days of on-demand access, plus bonus talks from Live2Lead 2019.

“This unprecedented time calls for leadership with renewed passion and commitment. That’s why we are proud to work in partnership with chamber member, Barb Stone, to bring our region this opportunity,” Kylie Peck, president and CEO of the Greater Watertown – North Country Chamber of Commerce, said. “As leaders, we need to continue to learn and benchmark against what other leaders have done and learned in their journey. I genuinely believe this is a great opportunity to hear from world-class leaders.”
