Featured Keynotes - 2020 IASB Convention




Opening Keynote

 James Comey
Exclusive with WSB



The Ethical Leader

Throughout his decades-long career in public service, James Comey has been committed to doing the right thing—at the expense of partisan politics, popular opinion, and even personal friendships. His book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, explores what good, ethical leadership looks like and how it drives sound decisions. He sheds light upon the thinking behind his own decisions and argues that leaders should be laser-focused on a core set of principles, chief among them truth, transparency, and decency. Comey offers executives—and the people who work for them—a road map for ethical leadership even in the most challenging and uncertain of circumstances.


James Comey, exclusive with WSB, led the Federal Bureau of Investigation from 2013 to 2017, appointed to the post  by President Barack Obama. Learn More

Bush's closest confidants and advisors, a Fox News Contributor, and a Wall Street Journal Columnist, Rove offers insightful analysis and predictions about the current heated debates in Washington, DC, the nation’s political course, and the bigger challenges America faces.
