Real World Leadership

Do you have what it takes to be an effective leader? Do you wonder what skills prominent leaders and employers find most valuable in new college graduates? How have they been able to cultivate those skills to become great leaders themselves?

This luncheon series invites professionals to share advice with student leaders (with an emphasis on practical skill development). In order to keep the series relevant and interesting for the student body, topics and speakers are chosen according to student input . RSVP is always required. Each lunch is eligible for Passport and Leadership Drury.
