Bentley Presents The Bentley Leadership Forum In Cooperation With TIME Magazine

March 26, 2006

On April 26, 2006 Bentley College and TIME Magazine will bring together leaders from the world of business, technology, global affairs and arts and entertainment to explore the need for change and adaptation in an increasingly complex and competitive global economy.


This year's Leadership Forum, the second in a series of annual forums designed to spotlight critical issues in business ethics, leadership and social responsibility across a variety of industries, will feature His Excellency Noel Fahey, Ireland's Ambassador to the U.S. as the morning keynote speaker and Peter Weedfald, Samsung Electronics America's Senior Vice President of Strategic Marketing and New Media as the lunch program keynote.


The panelists, a preeminent group of organization leaders, will share insights about their experiences in creating often dramatic change within their organizations. Their stories will illuminate today's necessity for continual change as technology and globalization shatter complacency and elevate strategic competitiveness to a new art form. These leaders will show how organizations can capitalize on the need for change, rather than be victimized by it.


Moderators will include James Kelly, Managing Editor, TIME, and Bentley Trustee Professor of Economics and Management Patricia Flynn who will provide insight into the complex, interrelated challenges that 21st century businesses face in their relationships with governments, global workforces, the environment and local communities.


During the lunch program, Bentley will honor The Tomorrow25, outstanding high school juniors who have been chosen through a Bentley-sponsored international competition as our next generation of leaders. The Tomorrow25 have demonstrated initiative, citizenship, intelligence, technological saavy, cultural awareness, social responsibility, a passion for the real world of people and organizations, and a strong commitment to making positive things happen in their schools or communities.
