Keynote Speaker

Kevin W. McCarthy is America’s Chief Leadership Officer. Since the late 1980s he’s been on the forefront of personal and organizational leadership development and integration. His newest book, Chief Leadership Officer, provides a map for CEOs to transition into CLOs.

The CLO™ premise is simple: CEOs are obsolete, leftovers from the Industrial Age.  This old school of management is increasing detrimental to the health and wellbeing of the people. In the current and coming competitive business ecosystem, the health of the organization depends upon the health of the team and people to work with fluidity. This is especially true for mid-market and larger businesses to compete and win in the Digital Age and beyond. Much has changed. Something has to change. Actually someone has to change!

The top organization leader needed for today and tomorrow is a Chief Leadership Officer. CLOs do business more completely right. They attain this through three charges: positioning the organization to be a leader in its chosen field; positioning people to be leaders of their lives and work; and integrating the first two charges to increase wealth so everyone profits–in the most robust sense of wealth and profit.

Kevin is the CLO of On-Purpose Partners, a business consultancy based in Winter Park, FL. He is the author of The On-Purpose Person and The On-Purpose Business Person. Kevin earned an MBA from the Darden School on the grounds of the University of Virginia, and a BS in Business & Economics from Lehigh University. Learn more at:
