This year's Opening Keynote was Jeffrey Hayzlett
. The hard-charging, affable former CMO of Kodak left his post there in 2010 to remake himself into a global business consultant, a budding TV celebrity, and a best-selling author by trying to lay bare some of the hard truths about business and, to use a term that he might use himself, by being a straight shooter. We hope students are enjoying reading Hayzlett's Running the Gauntlet
, and are changing lots of clocks!
