IADT-Detroit Leadership Unleashed Seminar

August 6, 2013 IADT General, IADT Detroit 0 Comments

The students at IADT-Detroit were given a special treat on July 15, 2013 when Dr. Galen R. Duncan, Senior Director of Player Development for the Detroit Lions visited our campus. He discussed topics ranging from the importance of Stress Management, Leadership and Team Building.

Dr. Duncan opened the seminar by asking the students “Who do want today…Dr. Duncan? Dr. Galen? Dr. “G”? Who do you want me to be?” Overwhelming the students responded with we want all of the above. And by the end of the night, many were calling him Dr. “G.”

Dr. Duncan’s focus and determination was infectious. He shared personal motivating stories and provided numerous ways to improve oneself ~ academically, professionally and personally.  He left the students with much to think about and numerous tools to make positive changes in their lives. For example he suggested that, “you should always have a book with you and when you are waiting in a doctor’s office pull it out and read it.”

The feedback received from Dr. Duncan’s presentation had one common theme…he was great! And the information provided was “helpful and enlightening.” One student said, “…very fun to listen to; learned so much” others summed up the seminar in a word. “Awesome!”

Once the seminar was winding down it was clear the students wanted more and Dr. Duncan was more than eager to oblige. He was invigorated by the students and was pleased their thirst for knowledge was so strong.

If you missed this seminar, no worries, we have another scheduled for the fall. Stay tuned for more details. The successful seminar was hosted by the Entrepreneurial Leadership Series.
