You are here
Good morning. I am very pleased to be here. I never get tired of coming to this campus. There is history in every brick ... and inspiration, too. These halls have produced some of the most selfless and courageous Americans in our history. It would be hard to find a better place to discuss ethics than right here.
As I said, this is not my first visit to this campus. Nor is it my first time here to discuss ethics.
I spoke at a special conference here in 2003, along with Senator Paul Sarbanes, other CEOs, and respected ethicists.
As you know, the bill he co-authored-Sarbanes-Oxley-redefined the standards for compliance across American business. It was a forceful legislative reaction to high profile events.
