Featured Keynote Speaker:

Bob Stone 
Bob Stone is an internationally known author and speaker on ethical leadership and on leading change. His new book, just out is The Ethics Challenge: Strengthening Your Integrity in a Greedy World, with Mick Ukleja. He served for twelve years as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Installations, where he radically decentralized authority, cut regulations, made excellence the new standard, and occasionally got into hot water. He then spent six years at the White House leading Al Gore’s effort to reinvent government. Tom Peters called Bob’s first book, Confessions of a Civil Servant: Lessons in Changing America's Government and Military, “maybe the best text ever on large scale organizational change. Anywhere.” It was praised by senior aides to Presidents G.H.W.Bush and Clinton, chiefs of the Army, Air Force, and Navy, and by the chairmen of Motorola, Harley Davidson, and TRW. He teaches business ethics at the University of Redlands and serves on the Governing Council of the Ukleja Center for Ethical Leadership at California State University, Long Beach. He has a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in chemical engineering from MIT.
