Bloomsburg University to host internationally-acclaimed speaker Drew Dudley

BLOOMSBURG—Bloomsburg University is hosting internationally-acclaimed speaker, author, and educator Drew Dudley on Monday, Nov. 4, at 6:30 p.m. in Carver Hall, Gross Auditorium. The presentation, which is free and open to the public, is titled “Lead the Way with Drew Dudley.”

Dudley's keynotes are a fun look at the smaller moments in life. Too often people let the big things overwhelm them and don't stop to take a look at what Dudley labels the 'lollipop moments,' which can brighten a day, an afternoon, and even a fleeting second in time. Dudley's insightful and meaningful keynotes are a lighter look at one of the most important aspects to living a good life -- looking out for others and doing small things to brighten their day and your own.

Dudley spent eight years as the director of one of Canada's largest leadership development programs at the University of Toronto and served as National Chair of Canada's largest post-secondary charity, which mobilized 35,000 volunteers annually to support the work of Cystic Fibrosis Canada.

Recognized as one of the most dynamic keynote speakers in the world, he has spoken to over 250,000 people on 5 continents, been featured on The Huffington Post, Radio America,, and, where his "TED talk" has been 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."

The Office of Military and Veterans Resources, the Zeigler College of Business, and the Office of Dean of Undergraduate Studies are sponsoring the event.

Bloomsburg University is one of 14 universities in Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education. The university serves approximately 8,700 students, offering comprehensive programs of study in five distinct colleges: College of Education, Zeigler College of Business, College of Liberal Arts, College of Science and Technology, and new Honors College.
