Keynotes/Workshops by Drew Dudley
Nuance Leadership’s Founder & Chief Catalyst, Drew Dudley, is one of Canada’s most sought-after speakers on leadership.
Despite being the former Director of one of Canada's largest university leadership development programs, Drew nevertheless embraces the idea that “leadership cannot really be taught. It can only be learned.”
“I’ve never thought of what I do as ‘teaching’ leadership,” says Drew. “For me, it’s always been about trying to find a way to help others explore the concept – what it means to them, and to their communities.”
Drew has helped raise millions of dollars as the Founder or Chair of several organizations dedicated to supporting scholarship funds, social entrepreneurship, and charitable initiatives. This includes a record-breaking term as the National Chair of Canada’s largest student fundraiser—Shinerama: Students Fighting Cystic Fibrosis-- which mobilizes over 35,000 students at over 60 colleges and universities to raise a million dollars annually to support the work of Cystic Fibrosis Canada.
Drew has spoken to over 100,000 people around the world, delivering workshops, lectures and simulations for groups ranging in size from three people to over three thousand. His powerful presentations have become a staple of conferences, orientation activities, and training workshops from Canada to Qatar, and he has delivered four different “TED Talks” as part of the “TEDx” series of events.
In February of 2012, his TEDxToronto talk appeared on the main page of TED.com, and has received over half a million views since then.
A natural storyteller with infectious energy, Drew challenges audiences to redefine their definitions of leadership, and recognize the importance of embracing an “economy of abundance” as they shape their career and life goals.
His work with some of Canada's largest schools, corporations and government agencies has led to him being called “one of the most motivating and inspiring speakers on leadership out there right now” (Dr. Brian Harrington, Oxford University).
Whatever your event, Drew can make your audience laugh, cry, and challenge themselves to better understand what leadership truly means to them.
