Author Simon Sinek to speak via broadcast

New York Times best-selling author Simon Sinek will participate in a broadcast event at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 8, sponsored by Marshall University’s chapter of the National Society of Leadership and Success.


The event will take place in room BE-5 of the Memorial Student Center. Sinek’s presentation, hosted by John Jay College in New York City, will be streamed live, allowing viewers to interact with Sinek via social media.

An author, motivational speaker, marketing consultant and trained ethnographer, Sinek studies leaders and organizational culture. He is fascinated by the leaders and companies that have the capacity to inspire, and has discovered remarkable patterns about how they think, act and communicate. Sinek is best known for popularizing these ideas in his first Ted Talk, which is the third most watched talk of all time on TED.com. He has had the honor of sharing his ideas at the United Nations and the U.S. Congress, and with an array of leaders and organizations, including Disney, JetBlue, MARS, SAP, Pfizer  NBC, and the senior leadership of the United States Air Force, Marine Corps, Army and Navy, as well as Special Forces agencies.

This is the fourth installment of the 2017-2018 multi-speaker broadcast series sponsored by the society.
