Ontario Region Business Meeting #3 

Date: Thursday, April 15, 2021

Time: TBD

Location: TBD

Fee: TBD

Topic: Leadership

Speaker: Drew Dudley

Somewhere around the middle of his undergraduate education, Drew realized engaging with the world was a lot more fun than writing papers about it. While still a student he became heavily involved in Canada’s largest post-secondary charitable initiative in support of Cystic Fibrosis Canada, eventually serving as the National Chair of the organization. As he moved into his career, he took on the challenge of creating and building the Leadership Development Program at the University of Toronto, which became the largest and most dynamic in the country.

 It was those leadership students who changed the course of Drew’s professional life: they secretly organized a campaign to put him onstage at TEDx Toronto 2010, where he delivered a talk that would go on to generate more than 5 million views around the web. A high-achieving lifestyle took its toll however: undiagnosed bipolar disorder set the foundation for binge eating and drinking, and Drew grew to over 300 pounds while struggling with the emotional challenges of a career that kept him on the road 250 days a year.
