DAVE BARRY is a Pulitzer-prize winning humor columnist and author of over 30 books. For 25 years he was a syndicated columnist whose work appeared in more than 500 newspapers worldwide, winning the Pulitzer Prize for Commentary in 1988.  He has authored a business book, Dave Barry’s Money Secrets, and his new book is, I’ll Mature When I’m Dead.

Early in his career, he worked for a consulting firm that teaches effective writing to businesspersons. He spent nearly eight years trying to get various businesspersons to “for God's sake” stop writing things like "Enclosed please find the enclosed enclosure," but he eventually realized that it was hopeless. He has been a candidate for president of the United States since 1992, and in 2000 was endorsed by then Mayor Richard Riordan.

In his new book, he expounds on everything from parenthood, self-image, the business of celebrity, technology, healthcare, pop culture and the future of the newspaper business.

RICHARD RIORDAN is the former Mayor of Los Angeles (1993-2001), a philanthropist, lawyer and businessman.

He currently serves as the Chairman of the Alliance for College Ready Public Schools, a successful charter management organization that operates thirteen middle and high schools in Los Angeles. He previously served as Secretary for Education, under Governor Schwarzenegger, where he advised the governor on education policy.

Riordan created the charitable foundation that bears his name with one goal in mind: to teach children how to read and write. Through its signature" Rx for Reading" program, The Riordan Foundation has distributed some 25,520 computers to 2,140 schools in 40 states and enabled the purchase of over 172,000 books for elementary classroom libraries.


The Drucker Business Forum is produced by the Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management with additional support from the Pearson Foundation.
