Featured Keynote Speaker: Robert Padulo, Ph.D.
For over 25 years as an executive, entrepreneur, investor, board member and consultant, Robert has served numerous organizations in a leadership capacity, always seeking better ways to do things. In the mid-1990s, he was a consultant at McKinsey & Company (where, among other things, he helped develop the innovative concept, principles and action steps of "CRM" — a business practice new to the world, and a name Robert coined), and was president of TapeLicator, Inc. (maker of a patented one-handed tape applicator). In 1999, Robert pioneered the online HR services industry by founding iWorkwell, Inc. — the quality leader in HR information, guidance & tools — which he led as President for 17 years. He is now a professional angel investor and advisor, and currently serves on Keiretsu Capital's 5-person Investment Screening Committee for Co-Investment Funds IV and V and in its "Senior Advisor Network."
A graduate of Harvard University, where he received the Harvard College Scholarship "in recognition of academic achievement of high distinction," Robert earned his Ph.D. at Balliol College, Oxford University; his doctoral thesis was titled "Managing Corporate Transformations: Lessons From a Cross-Case Analysis of Empirical Studies." During his doctoral research and consulting work at McKinsey, he conducted detailed studies of companies in different industries: media, consumer products, financial services, insurance, energy and health care.
An innovator & thought leader with deep expertise — in leadership/management, boards, analyses of valuations, Exit plans & ROIs, productivity, internal company development, change management, and HR; in design & marketing, sales, and strategic alliances; as well as in software-related products, Internet-based services, and business strategy — Robert brings both academic rigor and practical experience to the world's largest multi-national corporations as well as to the smallest private firms.
