Chitre, who will serve as the summit moderator, adds, "To be a leader in
today's marketplace, one cannot depend on improving brand awareness and
preference alone, but on how aligned an organization is with its company's
values, vision, and brand and promise among customers and employees."

"We are thrilled to announce that Harvard Professor, Howard Stevenson, a
mentor of author and speaker, Eric Sinoway, and the inspiration for Howard's
Gift, will speak at the summit," stated Steinmetz. "Stevenson has been and
