Business Keynote Speaking

Ron Williams speaks and consults with organizations seeking change. His speaking – whether to an enterprise leadership team, at top-tier forums, or before Congress – brings gravitas and a unique set of perspectives to any event. Ron works with organizers to customize a topic appropriate for each audience. Key themes he has addressed recently include:

Business Leadership & Transformation

“That’s Not Possible… Wait… We Just Did It!” Ron draws on his experience as a leader of Aetna’s billion dollar turnaround to share secrets to unlocking the discretionary energy of the workforce – increasing employee engagement and ultimately corporate profitability.

Value Creation in Healthcare

“Real Reform: The Serious, Mature Conversation We Should Be Having about Healthcare.” At a healthcare reform debate, Ron related how every set of stakeholders – physicians, hospitals, patients, insurers, med-tech companies, and government – can work together to improve patient outcomes, expand access, and increase affordability.

CEO Succession and Transition

The most important decision a board makes is selecting the company’s Chief Executive and ensuring a timeline and effective transition. As a Chairman, a Chief Executive Officer, and a current or former director of nine different publicly traded companies, Ron brings an insider perspective to decisions surrounding the way a board executes on its chief responsibility.
