    Frank C. Bucaro

    Speaking, training and writing on the benefits of ethics and value-base leadership, Frank has wowed audiences from all over the U.S. and Canada with his straight-forward approach and words of inspiration. He knows there is tremendous pressure to succeed and deliver big results in today’s highly competitive environment. He also believes that ethics and values are key components for success in this endeavor.

    Frank’s presentations are powerful, thought-provoking, surprisingly humorous and they also:

    • Are consistently requested by a wide range of businesses, associations, and educational organizations.
    • Combine up-to-date information, practical and easy to implement ideas and humorous stories for a high impact learning experience.
    • Are a natural fit with organizations interested in reinforcing their commitment to ethics and values in the workplace and reducing vulnerability to disruptive and costly ethics and compliance problems.
