Get over yourself! Todd Dewett at TEDxDayton
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.
