BIG Announcement and Giveaway to Celebrate the Release of The Catalyst Leader

Catalyst is a powerful convergence of like-minded leaders whose collective instincts, ideas and energy are inspiring a whole new generation. It is way more than an event -- it's a movement founded in the hearts of leaders who feel a burden for our generation to follow God and lead well.

After 13 years of gathering hundreds of thousands of young leaders through cutting edge conferences and events, the Catalyst movement continues to expand.This week marks the launch of the book The Catalyst Leader and the BIG announcement that Catalyst is yet again expanding to inspire and equip next generation leaders.

Today I am thrilled to announce that Catalyst will be holding the first-ever Catalyst London in November 2014!

And, to celebrate this great news and the launch of my new book The Catalyst Leader, we are giving away a trip for 2 (including airfare, lodging, and tickets) to Catalyst London in November 2014. More details are available here. No purchase is necessary to enter.

This is the first of many great giveaways that will be happening throughout the week to celebrate the release of The Catalyst Leader. Watch this space,, and follow the hashtag #CatalystLeader on Twitter and Instagram to learn more.
