Frank Maguire will be delivering the keynote presentation at the PBL National Leadership Conference on June 20. Maguire is one of corporate America’s most knowledgeable authorities on corporate culture, productivity, and communications. As the original Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications for FedEx, Maguire is acknowledged as the creator of the corporate culture that made the company the multi-billion dollar success story of the past two decades. Frank helped turn the phrase “absolutely, positively overnight” from a promise to a guarantee. As head of program development at ABC Radio Network, he hired Ted Koppel and Charles Osgood, giving them their first on-air broadcast jobs. While Koppel was eager, Osgood was not even sure he wanted to be in broadcasting! They both agree; Maguire knew best! Maguire served in the Executive Office of the President in Washington, D.C. under both John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson. Along with Sargent Shriver, Maguire was one of the five original task force members who created Project Headstart and Special Olympics.
