Since her retirement after the 2016-17 school year as Superintendent of the Lebanon School District, Dr. Marianne T. Bartley has been busy with her new business, Time to Think, LLC. She is also an Independent Executive Director of the famous John Maxwell Team.

Through Time to Think, Bartley has shared her 34 years of leadership experience in the field of education with others. Businesses, educators, organizations and individuals have been among her clients.

Now Bartley is taking it one step further. This Friday, October 11, she will host a live broadcast of the 6th annual Live2Lead event at the Lebanon Campus of HACC. The all-day seminar (8:30am – 2pm) is actually happening in Atlanta, GA and will be simulcast on the big screen at HACC and other locations worldwide. It’s the next best thing to actually being there in person.

Live2Lead features a host of world-class expert speakers including bestselling author and world renowned leadership authority John C. Maxwell. Also on stage will be Rachel Hollis, Angela Ahrendts, Marcus Buckingham and Chris Hogan. See photos of Live2Lead speakers below. There will also be a discussion session with Marianne after the simulcast.

Bartley has also invited a few local figures to participate. “Amaury Abreu, John Tice, and Karen Groh are among the opening lineup,” she said in a preview letter to attendees.

City of Lebanon Mayor Sherry Capello holds a copy of John Maxwell’s Leadershift, the book she will be speaking about at Friday’s conference.

According to a release, the event is for small business owners, educators, civic leaders, and individuals who want to sharpen their focus, increase their effectiveness, and revamp their leadership skills.

Tickets for the Live2Lead simulcast can be ordered here. Individual tickets are $89 and a table for 8 can be had for $650. Breakfast and lunch are included with your ticket purchase.

The event will feature food from caterer Rebecca Briody of Chef on the Go, and many healthy options will be available. Bartley said that comfortable clothes are recommended in case you want to do some stretching throughout the day, as sitting that long can be difficult. Mats and stretch bands will be available to help with this.

Bartley said that proceeds from the event will benefit local charitable organizations, including the YMCA and United Way.

This article has been updated to clarify that Bartley retired at the end of the 2016-17 school year, not in 2016 as originally stated. We sincerely regret the error. Additionally, Bartley informed us that the photo of her and Maxwell is dated to 2019, not 2018 as originally stated in the provided caption. We have updated the caption accordingly.
