Leadership. It’s the key to success no matter what your field or industry. It navigates your company through the uncertainty of today’s ever-changing corporate waters and it empowers your workforce to be innovative and decisive. It is also the key factor behind  the remarkable success in the fast-paced world of technology and communications experienced by Chairman of the Board at the Sony Corporation, Sir Howard Stringer.

Praised for his charisma, humor and eloquence, Howard Stringer is a rare and exceptional presence at the lecture podium. He addresses the extraordinary challenges facing business in the digital age, from the evolving landscape of the global marketplace to the nuts-and-bolts of managed competition and corporate re-engineering.

Sir Howard Stringer began his career at CBS in the 1970s as producer, director and writer of several ground-breaking CBS News specials, and later as executive producer of the award winning CBS Reports. Stringer’s work during this time earned him nine individual Emmy Awards. By 1981 he was Executive Producer of the CBS Evening News with Dan Rather and by 1984, Executive Vice President of CBS News.

Serving as President of CBS from 1988 to 1995, Sir Howard Stringer orchestrated the miraculous turnaround of the network from last place to first. His leadership was credited with dramatically strengthening all broadcast divisions of CBS, including one of the greatest coups in television history when he successfully convinced David Letterman to bring his late night show to CBS. Following his celebrated tenure at CBS, he was recruited by telephone giants Bell Atlantic, NYNEX and Pacific Telesis to head up Tele-TV, the bold start-up venture that sought to deliver interactive programming via the world’s telephone networks.
