PTBOCanada Featured Post: International Expert On Leadership (& Peterborough Native) Drew Dudley Coming To Market Hall February 28th

Leaders are in our lives everywhere you look: They’re our coworkers, members of our family, and even people in our social circles. While some people seem to be born leaders, others must work at it because it didn’t come instantly or naturally to them. Yet the desire and work ethic was always there.

Peterborough native Drew Dudley, the Founder & Chief Catalyst of Day One Leadership, Inc., thinks we all have the capacity to show leadership qualities. In fact, he has made an impressive career helping organizations around the world increase their leadership capacity.
