Steven Snyder to Deliver JRD Tata Ethics Oration at XLRI, Jamshedpur
On January 9th, 2008

Steven Snyder, Ph.D., founder of Orono-based Snyder Leadership Group, has been selected to deliver the prestigious JRD Tata Oration on Business Ethics. Snyder will present his speech on January 9, 2008, at XLRI School of Business and Human
Resources in Jamshedpur, India. The annual oration is one of the most sought-after events on the school's calendar and is watched closely by business leaders in India and around the world as it provides fresh perspectives to relevant issues that have a global impact.

Past JRD Tata Oration lecturers include University of St. Thomas Business Ethics Prof. Ken Goodpaster, and Peter Eileen, Founder and Chairman of Transparency International, the world's leading organization fighting against corruption.

Snyder began his acclaimed career at Microsoft where he secured the company's relationship with IBM and helped shape the history of the personal computer industry. He introduced organizational and process innovations that have become hallmarks of Microsoft's strategy.
