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.”
