Speech Titles and Descriptions:
If Good Ethics is Good Business, Then What’s the Problem?
It seems that media reports of companies being fined, or accusations of unethical or illegal behavior, are just about a daily feature in news reports. We may even find ourselves asking “how” and “why” this could still be happening with so many organizations focusing on “doing the right thing” and touting a strong ethical culture.Most folks would agree that solid ethical business practices are desirable, good and necessary for business. This program will explore the five challenges that threaten the reputation of an organization, and will present solutions to keep the focus on solid values and staying on the ethical high road.The “problem” and solutions will focus on:

1. Compliance and Ethics Confusion.
2. The lack of Moral Awareness.
3. “Shades of Gray” ethical thinking.
4. The Death of Bland Training.
5. The Leadership Quagmire.

The Trust Puzzle: How to Keep Your Company on the Ethical High Road
What does it mean to be good company for investors, associates, customers, and employees? Like a valuable friendship, it is the organization that people want to associate with, the organization that is successful and strong to the core. Many businesses today are vulnerable to illegal and unethical activities at every organizational level. This humorous and sometimes irreverent presentation will focus on five key areas that illustrate that doing the right thing, at the right time, for the right reason is not only wise, it is profitable!Five key areas that will be covered:1. Reputation— the importance of building and keeping a great reputation.

2. Trust and Loyalty – the basis for rewarding relationships, but easy to take for granted, and much tougher to regain.

3. Having a Moral Compass
– In which direction are you headed?
– Based on what?
– Is that where you want to go?

4. Accountable Leadership
– Not just responsible leadership— but accountable to those you serve.

5. Stewardship
– What we do after we say we believe in the mission statement, the code of conduct, the values statement.

I’ve known and trusted Frank for many years after first seeing him do an amazing keynote. Later had Frank help us build a company code of ethics which served to guide us during rapid growth. Most recently I had Frank in to conduct a 90minute ethics workshop for my Midwest leaders. He’s energetic, passionate, funny and one of the top experts in the world on the topic of ethical leadership.

Even though you and I did not spend but a few moments together, I am totally impressed with you; a consummate professional. I have worked with hundreds of speakers in my conference planning career. I place you right at the top of the list. Not just for your skill and passion (which is what I believe transcended to our participants resulting in all of the many contacts and immediate praise) but down to little details like the nice personal note I just received. I decided to sit and listen to your words and advice. It reached me and touched on so many of the virtues I believe are visible with many of our loyal members.

We are working on our post conference Evaluations however the instant reactions indicated the “Perfect Score” objective in our eyes we enjoy observing. Like the Olympic Judging, the Perfect 10 is given few and far between and it’s about as rare for us as it is in Olympic history.

The Aluminum Extruders Council LOVED having Frank Bucaro deliver his Good Company: Be the Organization That People Want To Work For, Partner With, Invest In and Buy From! presentation. Our audience of senior leaders said they really enjoyed your presentation as well as the way you presented the material. It was a lively, fun and information presentation that was raved about within our group. Our room was captivated by your presentation style and appreciated the humor you appropriately incorporated. We would be thrilled to have you as a return speaker one day!

Thank you again, Frank,

We hired Frank to speak a group of lab professionals at Pittcon. Frank delivered a great message about ethics. He used personal experiences and humor to get his information across. Frank’s enthusiasm was contagious and as a result the attendees were very engaged. I found Frank to be very easy to work with. He is organized, accommodating and personable. Frank would be an excellent fit for any organization.
