A master in the art of the relationship

Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York has named former Citigroup and Time Warner chairman Richard Parsons to lead his Education Reform Commission. The 20-member panel will evaluate ways to improve student performance and implement an action plan.

Called "a master in the art of the relationship" by Bloomberg Businessweek, Parsons has been lauded for his ability to steer organizations to success—even amidst troubled times—by leveraging connections and building relationships. He is considered one of the most influential and respected executives of our time. Parsons—who is represented for speaking engagements by American Program Bureau—shares his lessons on leadership, change management, education, and philanthropy in keynote speeches nationwide.
