ASW Events Team
ASMALLWORLD Members are invited to join an online webinar on "Self-respect: The Foundation of Leadership" with guest speaker Drew Dudley, as part of our ASMALLWORLD Webinars Series. This Webinar will be moderated by Ambassador Amado Simmons.

In this keynote, Drew melds self-care insights from all over the world with his own story to present six strategies for embedding self-care and building self-respect into your personal leadership philosophy. Over the past eight years, these strategies helped him achieve and maintain sobriety, lose 100 pounds, manage his mental health, and most recently, process a profound personal tragedy.

A presentation that acknowledges the dark parts of life and work with humour and compassion, this practical exploration of self-awareness, forgiveness, resilience and healing will remind you that we cannot lead others until we can lead ourselves, and show you how great leaders know how to put themselves first while still serving others.

Tune in to this webinar on Thursday, April 29th at 20:00 CET (20:00 Zurich, 19:00 London, 14:00 New York).
