By Sophie Tran, university news and communications intern

Drew Dudley, founder and chief catalyst of Day One Leadership, will present "Everyday Leadership: Leading with Lollipops" at 7:30 p.m. Monday, March 6, in the Wilks Theater, Armstrong Student Center as part of the 2016-2017 Miami University Lecture Series.

Dudley works with organizations around the world to empower people to increase their leadership capacity. His clients have included McDonald’s, DreamWorks Animation, Proctor & Gamble Co., JPMorgan Chase & Co. and more than 75 colleges and universities.

Dudley has spoken to more than 250,000 people on five continents and been featured on The Huffington Post, Radio America, Forbes.com and TED.com, where his TED talk was voted “one of the 15 most inspirational TED talks of all time” and has been viewed millions of times around the web. TIME recently named the talk one of their “seven speeches that will make you a better leader.”

Prior to founding Day One Leadership, Dudley spent eight years as director of one of Canada’s largest leadership development programs at the University of Toronto and served as national chair of Canada’s largest postsecondary charity, mobilizing 35,000 volunteers annually to support the work of Cystic Fibrosis Canada.
