Judy Smith, the real-life inspiration for the TV drama "Scandal," will speak Jan. 28 at UNC-Charlotte.

Crisis management expert Judy Smith will speak at 7 p.m. at the Cone University Center in McKnight Hall. The free presentation is sponsored by the Center for Leadership Development as part of its Forty-niner Forum.

Smith, founder and president of Smith & Company, a strategic and crisis communications firm with offices located in Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles, will talk about striving in the midst of personal crisis and hype her book “Good Self, Bad Self.” The book details how people can transform their worst qualities into their biggest assets through examples of crisis management. A book signing and reception will follow the presentation.

“If you are entertained by the show, then you’ll be enthralled by Judy Smith,” said Nadia Campbell, UNCC’s assistant director for the Center for Leadership Development. “People should know the real Olivia Pope.”

Smith, a former deputy press secretary for President George W. Bush, developed her crisis management expertise through historical events such as the 1991 Gulf War, Los Angeles riots, and President Bill Clinton’s sex scandal with Monica Lewinsky.
