Learn and Be inspired.

Compelling guest speakers, conversational tone, intrigueing topics around leadership- this podcast is a must-listen and I'd recommend it to anyone. I found myself jotting down ideas from the podcast and looking up speakers afterwards. This will make you question what you thought you knew about leadership and motivate you to be a better leader in your own life.

Drew is the best

During my frosh week at MSVU a few years ago, Drew called me out in the audience and asked me what I wanted in life, a question I couldn't answer. After hearing him speak I continued to follow him through YouTube and social media, he'd really left a mark on me that day and inspired me to never stop growing as a person. This podcast is just another opportunity to learn from Drew and a reminder that life is amazing. Thank you Drew!
