Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City, talks about “Principled Leadership in the Face of Change and Crisis,” at 8 p.m. EDT May 3 in Auburn University’s Beard-Eaves Memorial Coliseum.
The lecture is part of the university's "Perspectives on the Plains" student-led lecture series. It began last year as part of the Student Government Association's vision to give students a chance to listen to prominent speakers representing a wide variety of viewpoints.
Drew Robinson, director of Perspectives on the Plains and a senior business major, said Giulinia is "the ideal public figure to address our students and community because of his inspirational leadership in the dark days following Sept. 11, 2001 ... Mayor Giuliani is widely lauded for his steady hand during challenging times."
Time magazine named him "Person of the Year" and was knighted by Queen Elizabeth. French President Jacques Chirac called him "Rudy the rock."
Giuliani founded Giuliani Partners in 2002, a professional services firm for emergency preparedness, public safety, leadership during crises and financial management. He is also a partner is the law firm of Bracewell & Giuliani, an international law firm specializing in energy and financial services industries.
