Generation Y is in a tough spot.
Dave Ursillo should know.
A Millennial himself, Dave’s Gen-Y contemporaries are vivid dreamers, high idealists and aspiring world-changers whose imaginations know no bounds.
But the stifling climate of today’s prolonged global recession — amid a scary atmosphere of anger and distrust with America’s modern leaders — is crippling an entire generation on the rise with record levels of unemployment and underemployment.
In the face of such uncertain times comes Dave Ursillo’s powerful leadership message — a bold, unconventional and inspired alternative leadership philosophy that empowers the naturally-daring minds of his peers to reclaim what it really means to be a leader — in a world that desperately needs them.
We Need to Turn to Each Other.
In a day and age that is so desperate for real leadership with honest inspiration, my speaking gigs are designed to shatter the biggest misconceptions that we maintain, ourselves:
- The ones that keep us from realizing our simple happiness
- The ones that stop dreams from becoming brilliantly, undeniably real.
By daring the hearts and minds of your audience to really live their leadership, we will liberate ourselves from the very misconceptions that hold us back from flourishing, every day. Now… that’s pretty rad.
Whether on campus, at your startup or your corporate biz, everyone can benefit from reclaiming the meaning of leadership for themselves — with or without followers. But why?
Because being a leader is not about being “more than” or “better than” or “different than” anyone else – it’s about flourishing within your own raw humanity.
Imagine the impact of this message on your organization’s working culture. On honing your team-building and streamlining communication channels to be more open and honest.
Whether a keynote speech or afternoon workshops, an interactive Q&As or a day-long seminars, I’ll create a custom curriculum for you that’s both raw and real — with a ton of heart and practical, tangible methods to achieve success, not “self-help fluff.”
You so deserve that.
As a member of The Young Entrepreneur Council and an Associate Speaker of The Nuance Leadership Speaking Team, see why premier liberal arts institutions like the College of the Holy Cross and American University have brought me on to speak about leading without followers.
“Insightful, Experiential, Undeniable.”
A former “politico” insider reborn into writer, author and speaker, few understand what Generation Y is enduring better than Dave:
In 2009, while secretly battling a “quarter-life” crisis of identity, anxiety and depression, Ursillo abandoned his young and promising career path in public service – spanning five federal and state governmental offices over six years from 2003 to 2009, including the White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) in 2008 and as an aide to a gubernatorial candidate in 2009.
Abruptly quitting his job as a political aide to a promising state office-holder and gubernatorial candidate, now years later, Ursillo has held tight to his love of helping others and adapted the positive traits of leadership from public service to teach all men and women how to lead in their lives — by cultivating a quiet, profound sense of personal leadership within.
Since 2009, DaveUrsillo.com has been visited over 100,000 readers from 176 countries around the globe. Ursillo was seen in a feature story on CBS News Sunday Morning in June 2011 on the world of blogging.
He published his debut nonfiction book, Lead Without Followers: How to Save Our World by Radically Redefining the Meaning of Leadership in September 2011.
In an era of political angst and social unrest, Dave Ursillo brings forth a refreshingly new perspective on what leadership really means—and how Generation Y can harness it to achieve their incredible dreams while shaping a vibrant and sustainable future for our world.
Dave strikes simple sense in his audience while invoking their natural goodness. Purely authentic and utterly unfiltered, he helps his audience to remember what they already know.
As a budding young speaker, Ursillo has rocked crowds of two-hundred, and invoked intimate discussions among groups of two-dozen.
See why premier liberal arts institutions like the College of the Holy Cross (Worcester, MA) and American University (Washington D.C.) have brought Dave on campus to talk leadership based in love.
