Also visiting IBS will be Robert A. Glassman, co-founder of Wainwright Bank. He will share his perspective on building a business that is widely recognized as one of the leading socially progressive banks in the country, in a speech called "Social activism - one corporation's journey."

IBS continues to attract notable leaders to share their perspectives on business. Past speakers have been from government, industry as well as the media.
