Last Friday evening many, many people from all walks came together to celebrate Rodney Jordan‘s birthday – and raise more than $500 for the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition.

During the celebration, I asked one of my typical birthday questions, “What’s the most significant event for you this past year?”

Rodney’s response: “This night, having all of these people here, this community.”


I believe that tells you exactly what kind of person Rodney is – he is all about the community – at our roundtable, Rodney jordan is Sir Galahad – pure of heart and ever galant (fyi, I’m labeling myself as the town crier in this little analogy).

Here’s the thing, I don’t know if many people really know just how much Rodney does – from organizing events to putting people and organizations together to supporting hundreds of people in the area – Rodney was the first person to step up to lead the Community Matters Networking Group, Rodney put together (and primarily funded) the first Social Media Train in Delaware – oh yea, and for anyone who has benefitted from using the hashtag #netde, yea, Rodney started that.

It is safe to say that most people in our community owe a debt of gratitude to Rodney – I know I do.

And when I look at how much he has done in just the last couple of years I’ve known him, I can’t wait to see how much will be accomplished in the coming years!

Rodney Jordan, truly deserving of the Dream, Believe, Dare and Do award if there ever was one.


Chick-Fil-A Leadercast, Leadership Conference comes to #Delaware May 6, 2011 Find out more… #NetDe #SussexDe

What is Leadercast?:

The Chick-fil-A Leadercast began like most great ideas do: with an innovative leader and a simple vision.

That leader is John C. Maxwell, and his vision was to create a different kind of leadership conference. One that was affordable and open to leaders from every background. One that gave individuals and organizations the chance to gather in their own communities, build relationships with each other and grow as leaders.

In 2009, GiANT Impact began partnering with Chick-fil-A to develop leaders. Yes, Chick-fil-A is a quick-service chicken restaurant chain, and most customers are more familiar with their great food and customer service than they are with the company's leadership legacy. What many don't know is that Chick-fil-A credits its success to its core values and its focus on developing leaders. Chick-fil-A is passionate about supporting organizations' and individuals' efforts to grow their leadership potential.

The milestone partnership with Chick-fil-A prompted GiANT Impact to look to the future with even bigger dreams and a few other exciting changes, which included the name Leadercast.

Leadercast represents the growth of this leadership event and communicates GiANT's responsibility to help you cast a vision of leadership in your organization and your community. Leadercast also supports John Maxwell's original vision of developing leaders by partnering with fellow leadership organizations, host locations and attendees. Chick-fil-A is now one of the key organizations helping GiANT Impact live out John's vision.
