Exchange is a three-day immersive event that puts you face-to-face with leadership experts in top industries and side-by-side with world-class thinkers. You'll go deep with your personal and professional growth through new experiences that will broaden your perspective and add value to your leadership.

Every year is an adventure to a new and vibrant city, and this year is no exception. Join us in Charlotte, NC, November 1-3 for a little southern hospitality and a unique look at the fuel and passion of NASCAR's No.1 team to beat, and the No.1 team in servant leadership, Hendrick Motorsports.

Test-Drive with Hendrick Motorsports and Top-Level Leaders

You'll have the opportunity to hear from executives and leaders from a variety of industries and engage in first-rate learning at world-class sites all around Charlotte.

This year will be unlike anything you've ever experienced. How? It puts you in the driver's seat, literally.

Our partnership with Hendrick Motorsports is an opportunity for all of you to see how to live out top-notch leadership in a fast-paced and competitive environment. You'll not only gain intimate access to mentorship and learning with John C. Maxwell, you'll get an inside look at the Hendrick Motorsports headquarters, explore their garage, and hear from their exemplary founder, Mr. Rick Hendrick.

Exposure to Excellence and Expertise

  • The intimate and focused time you'll have at this event will give you an opportunity to connect directly with John C. Maxwell in small group gatherings and one-on-one conversations.
  • You'll gain an in-depth perspective on your own leadership challenges and strengths through formal teachings by industry experts, group discussions, and individual time to process what you're learning.
  • You'll develop relationships with senior leaders from all over the country who are investing in their own growth and development. This is the beginning of lasting friendships with like-minded leaders who can add value to you in your personal and work lives year after year.
  • You get exposed to experts from organizations admired for their world-class approaches to business in their industries and their drive for servant leadership.

Experiences You'll Never Forget

We believe experience is the best way to making learning last. That's why each Exchange event is full of hands-on, immersive experiences. What will it be in Charlotte? It's always a surprise for our guests, but past events included running drills in the Dallas Cowboys stadium, a reception and dinner at the New York Stock Exchange, batting practice at Fenway Park, and spending an evening in the Bush Presidential Library with none other than George W. Bush.

These once-in-a-lifetime moments will make everything you learn about yourself and your business truly unforgettable.
