Spielberg, Lincoln and Leadership

Please join us in Gettysburg on November 18 – 20, 2012. You will experience a once-in-a-career opportunity to explore effective and powerful communication strategies through the persona of Abraham Lincoln. These strategies were essential to Lincoln’s legacy and are crucial to success in today’s environment.

We have assembled:

  • Compelling, powerful and engaging case studies delivered by 3 of the top Lincoln scholars alive today (much more entertaining than the dead ones)
  • VIP seating for the Dedication Day ceremony commemorating the Gettysburg Address featuring Keynote Speaker, Steven Spielberg
  • A private dinner inside the Gettysburg Visitor Center with exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the Cyclorama painting
  • A private viewing of the new Spielberg movie, Lincoln.

Your experience begins at 5 pm on November 18th and concludes by 11 am on Tuesday, the 20th and is limited to fifty participants first come first serve. All meals, accommodations, materials, autographed books authored by our presenters and transportation once in the Gettysburg, will be graciously handled by the Lincoln Leadership Institute. The costs are as follows:

1-3 attendees $3,470 each (all inclusive)
4 or more attendees $2,975 each (all inclusive)

If you would like to attend or need more information, please call 717-338-9971 or email angela@gettysburgleadership.com. We look forward to seeing you in Gettysburg!

Jared Peatman, Ph.D., winner of the 2012 Hay-Nicolay prize for the best dissertation on Abraham Lincoln, will use the Gettysburg Address to explore strategies that allow us to communicate to the broadest possible audiences and create a massive impact in both the short and long term.

Matt Pinsker, Ph.D., a graduate of Harvard and Oxford, author of Lincoln’s Sanctuary, and at one time the youngest endowed history professor in America, explores Lincoln’s road to emancipation and abolition, a history-altering change that required communicating to secure buy-in for the most controversial issue of the day.

Harold Holzer, former speechwriter for Mario Cuomo, the Vice President of Communications for the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and author of over forty books on Abraham Lincoln, will use Civil War prints to explore how we promote and cement a brand.
