Keynote speaker at management conferences

Bob Tomasko's talk - a call for ongoing attention to building the industry's future through growth - was used to complement the first speech, and to stimulate debate among those attending about the need to keep long term visions alive while coping with a turbulent business downturn.
As the closing speaker at a "Growth Summit" organized by the Grocery Manufacturers of America, Bob Tomasko joined speakers such as the CEO of Kraft Foods and the leader of McKinsey's global growth practice in urging America's consumer goods makers to pay more attention to growth than to cost-cutting, merging and restructuring. His talk was the highest rated at the conference.
