The Privilege of Leadership

Bob Chapman, the CEO of $3 billion global firm Barry-Wehmiller who was recently named the No. 3 CEO in the world in Inc. magazine’s article “They Lead in a Totally Unique Way,” will share his transformation from manager to leader and his realization that business could be the most powerful force for good in the world. His message, also captured in a Harvard case study and a TEDx Talk, focuses on the profound responsibility of leaders to the lives entrusted to them and the impact of their leadership on the health and family life of those in their organizations. This message was the inspiration behind Chapman’s recent Wall Street Journal best-seller, Everybody Matters.
