Everyday Leadership - Drew Dudley at COD Tonight!

Everyday Leadership: Celebrating the Simple Actions That Improve Each Other's Lives, a presentation by Drew Dudley, will take place tonight, February 22, beginning at 7:00 PM at the College of DuPage McAninch Arts Center, 425 Fawell Blvd. Glen Ellyn, 60137. The event is sponsored by the Glenbard Parent Series: (GPS) Navigating Healthy Families.

Drew Dudley is a leadership educator recognized as one of the most dynamic keynote speakers in the world. He inspires individuals to create “cultures of everyday leadership" moments of powerful impact and growth that are fostered, acknowledged, and rewarded through daily acts of generosity.

His wildly popular TED talk was voted “one of the 15 most inspirational TED talks of all time” and named by TIME as one of its “seven speeches that will make you a better leader." Drew Dudley helps us understand leadership in a nuanced, practical, and hopeful way.

He highlights the barriers to leadership and, with hope, humor, and optimism,  focuses on ways in which they can be overcome. This is world-class storytelling with practical insights on how to develop and recognize leadership, of which we are all capable—in ourselves, our families, and our communities. He has worked with hundreds of universities and corporations worldwide to help individuals move to purposeful action, empowering people to create the future they desire and add value to their lives and to the lives of others.
