Todd Dewett

Performer. Thought Leader. Catalyst. #1 Worldwide Best-selling Author at Lynda.com/LinkedIn, Inc.'s Top 100 Leadership Speaker

As a consultant, Todd Dewett held positions at Andersen Consulting and Ernst & Young. His consulting experience provided a vital career-changing insight: most professionals are not fully engaged and do not feel their work matters. In response, Todd decided to rededicate his life to the study of leadership and success in life in an effort to help people better experience happiness and a genuine sense of purpose.

The next step was the PhD program in Management at the Mays Business School, Department of Management, at Texas A&M University where Todd quickly earned awards for both research and teaching. His hard work resulted in scholarly publications, a prestigious Post Doctoral Fellowship,= and, finally, a PhD and a tenure track appointment to the business school at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio.

As a professor at Wright State, Todd’s teaching focused solely on leadership-related courses in Wright State’s nationally ranked MBA program. In three years he received tenure. In six years he became a Full Professor. In year seven, he was appointed the Assistant Dean for MBA and Executive Programs.

During his ten years as a professor, Todd received many teaching awards including the prestigious designation as the Robert J. Kegerreis Distinguished Professor of Teaching. It was in the classroom that he ultimately discovered the power of stories, and his next calling in life: professional speaking.

As an entrepreneur today, Todd wears many hats: speaker, author, advisor, not to mention being the go-to leadership and life expert for millions of members at Lynda.com, the world’s leader in online learning. Nonetheless, his top love remains professional speaking. Todd possesses a rare combination of traits for a speaker: world-class expertise, a rugged authentic style, and an ability to use emotion and humor in a way that changes people. At every event, people laugh, learn, and cry.

His insights have resulted in quotes in the New York Times, Forbes, BusinessWeek, CNN, Investors Business Daily, MSNBC, Chicago Tribune, Christian Science Monitor, US News and World Report, and hundreds of additional outlets including foreign press and award winning blogs. His electric performance as a speaker has secured recent clients including Ernst & Young, Booz Allen Hamilton, State Farm, JM Smucker, Medtronic, TGI Fridays, Standard Register, Cox Media, NCR, Sogeti, Emerson, and scores of additional corporations, conferences, and nonprofits.

Show Your Ink

Understanding the Power of Authentic Leadership This interactive keynote address inspires while making leadership practical and accessible. Building on organizational science and years of practical experience, Dr. Dewett delivers leadership insight through personal, funny, and emotionally moving stories. SHOW YOUR INK is a phrase that reminds us to be open and authentic. Managing impressions professionally is understandable, but we overindulge to the point that people share an incomplete version of themselves – say hello to mediocre relationships and lackluster productivity. People need to know the full, authentic you. From communication and decision making to employee engagement and recognition, Dr. Dewett addresses your core challenges through the lens of authenticity with thought provoking takeaways you can use immediately, all wrapped in the signature energy and humor that have made him one of the most in-demand speakers in the country. 

Ohio Society of CPAs

"The talk on being more creative was engaging, inspiring, and extremely relevant. Todd was outstanding!"

Regan, Levin, Bloss, Brown & Savchak

"I have not laughed that hard in a long time – thank you. You have a way of putting laughter into learning, and allowing the participants to soul search for their true values. Thanks again for reminding me to show my ink!"

PNC

"Dr. Dewett was inspiring, thought-provoking, and great at connecting with the audience in a straightforward manner on leadership, team, and career issues. One of the few speakers I’ve heard who will I will remember long after his presentation."

U.S. Airforce

"There is a lot of content out there about leadership, but Dr. Dewett brings the context and delivery to create “ah-ha” learning moments."
