NBC?s Apprentice Star Kwame Jackson will speak at the 3D Leadership Conference on Friday, Oct. 22.

The university's Student Development and Leadership Institute (SDLI) and the Distinguished Lecture Series are proud to announce Kwame Jackson as the keynote speaker for the 2004 3D Leadership Conference: Dream, Dare, Do! on Friday, Oct. 22. Jackson, a Harvard MBA graduate, will speak about his professional leadership experience working for Fortune 500 company Procter & Gamble and his firsthand experience working for real estate guru Donald Trump in NBCs nationally televised reality show, The Apprentice.  

In an effort to assist students in exploring their own leadership abilities and in becoming involved in co-curricular campus activities, faculty and staff are requested to encourage students in their classes, offices and clubs to register for the upcoming free 3D Leadership Conference.

“The 3D Leadership Conference is an innovative educational initiative for students in any stage of their leadership development wanting to explore campus involvement opportunities and enhance personal growth,” says Jeff Hoffman, associate director of ASI's Programs, Recreational Sports & Marketing.

The conference will begin Friday, Oct. 22, at 2 p.m. in the Bronco Student Center's Ursa Major Suite. Jackson will bring the half-day conference to a close with his speech, “Lessons from the Boardroom,” at 6 p.m. Students attending the conference will receive VIP seating at the Jackson address and limited additional seating will be available for the general public.

Under the umbrella of the SDLI, 3D is a collaboratively planned and sponsored program between the Distinguished Lecture Series, ASI Bronco Events & Activities Team (B.E.A.T.), Office of Student Life & Cultural Centers, Dean of Students Office and University Housing Services.

SDLI is a university educational program designed to assist students in enhancing student leadership abilities through building self confidence, developing a personal philosophy of leadership, amplifying personal growth and development, and building career opportunities.

3D, in its inaugural year, is a free program open to any currently enrolled Cal Poly Pomona student. Online registration is required at www.cpp.edu/~leadership and must be completed by Oct. 18.
