Former American Red Cross president spoke at Eastern Nazarene College’s business forum

Quincy, MA. Nov. 15, 2007 — On November 13, a leader in law, business, and the government and non-profit sector Richard F. Schubert spoke at Eastern Nazarene College. His lecture, titled "Changeless Leadership in Changing Times", was part the 2007 Warren Business Forum. He was the first Nazarene to ever attend Yale Law School. 

Schubert presented the idea that even though our culture is in a state of chaotic change, there are still business principles that remain constant, namely integrity.  

"Given the breadth and depth of his life experience, his insights into the changeless principles of leadership will be valuable to all," said Richard Wilson, director of development at the college. 

Schubert, an ENC and Yale Law School graduate, was president and vice chairman of Bethlehem Steel Corporation, general counsel and deputy secretary for the U.S. Department of Labor, president/CEO of the American Red Cross, and founding president/CEO of the Points of Light Foundation. He is currently the senior vice president of the Executive Coaching Network, Inc. He is a founding board member and the Washington representative of the Peter F. Drucker Foundation, the founding chairman of the board of Biorelease Corporation, a member of the board of National Alliance of business, and a founding board member of Weirton Steel Corporation. Schubert has been awarded seven honorary degrees and has been admitted to the U.S. Supreme Court and Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
