Keynote Speaker

Opening General Session: Creating Cultures of Leadership

Keynote Speaker: Drew Dudley
Monday, June 1
10:30 am - 12:15 pm

In Drew Dudley’s practical and provocative keynote, leadership is reframed as a daily choice rather than a set of titles or accolades earned over time. Drew shows that treating each day as if it is “day one” of a leadership journey results in a stronger daily commitment to acting on one’s core personal and organizational values. 

Drew will walk attendees step-by-step through the discovery of their personal leadership values, demonstrate how those values can be translated into daily behaviors, and show how values-based decision-making leads to individual and organizational success.

Honest, engaging, and above all practical, this presentation will help each audience member understand why they are leader while showing them how to craft their personal “day one.”

Drew is recognized as one of the most dynamic keynote speakers in the world. He has spoken to more than 250,000 people on five continents and has been featured on The Huffington Post, Radio America,, and His TED Talk was voted “one of the 15 most inspirational TED Talks of all time.” Time, Business Insider, and INC. magazines have all included his talk on their lists of “speeches that will make you a better leader.” Drew’s clients include McDonald’s, Proctor & Gamble, JP Morgan Chase, Hyatt Hotels, the United Way, and more than 75 colleges and universities.

Drew’s first book, This is Day One: A Practical Guide to Leadership That Matters, debuted at no. 6 on The Wall Street Journal Bestseller List, and has gone on to become an international bestseller.
