12-12:50 p.m. Luncheon Keynote Speaker

Topic: Setting the Bar: How to Create and Sustain an Ethical Work Environment:

Ethics has two forms – the philosophical and the practical. This isn’t the usual presentation. It blends both because the philosophical without the practical is lost. The practical without the philosophical is rote. To understand ethics is to stand in both places. Hopefully, I can add to your personal understanding of both.
