Just so you know what I've been up to.........In what is now my last quarter at the UCLA/Anderson School of Management, I’ve established a distinguished speaker series for our Executive MBA class and invited some of Southern California's best chief executives to speak on the topic of leadership.

The Speakers are:

Dr. David T Feinberg: CEO UCLA Hospital System, April 24, 2009

Dr. Ronald Sugar: Chairman & CEO Northrop Grumman, April 25, 2009

General Wesley Clark: NATO's Supreme Allied Commander, Europe, Democratic Presidential Candidate, May 8, 2009

Tom Rothman: Co-Chairman/CEO, Fox Filmed Entertainment, May 22, 2009

Greg Craig: Founder/CEO Cook Inlet Energy, , May 22, 2009

Michael Lynton: Chairman/CEO Sony Pictures Entertainment, June 6, 2009


  1. congratulations on your distinguished speaker series. I find it kind of sad that they're all white men, though. I'm sure you simply wanted to book great guests. Just something to think about in the future.

  2. Assumptions make an ASS of U and ....... Actually Greg Craig ran the largest privately owned minority company in America prior to selling it 2 years ago. Cook Inlet Energy was I believe also majority non-white and majority women. He grew up in a small fishing village in Alaska.
