WESTPORT, CT. – February 1, 2021 –  HMG Strategy, the world's #1 research forum for enabling technology executives to reimagine the enterprise and reshape the business world, is excited to announce that bestselling author Stephen M.R. Covey as a keynote speaker for its upcoming HMG Live! CIO and CISO Executive  Leadership Summit Series.

Covey, who is the Co-Founder of CoveyLink and the FranklinCovey Global Speed of Trust Practice, is the bestselling author of The Speed of Trust.  In the book, which made both The New York Times and The Wall St. Journal bestseller lists, Covey advocates that nothing is as fast as the speed of trust and that the ability to establish, grow, extend, and restore trust with all stakeholders is the critical leadership competency of the new global economy.

“Trust is a performance multiplier,” says Covey. “In a high-trust culture, people will be more willing to take risks, which will lead to greater innovation.”

“We’re thrilled to be adding Stephen to the dialogue to share his visionary insights on why it’s so important for business technology executives to foster speed of trust with the CEO, the Board, the executive team and across the organization,” says Hunter Muller, President and CEO of HMG Strategy who will be interviewing Stephen M.R. Covey during the HMG Live! CIO and CISO Executive Leadership Summit Series. “Our Advisory Board members across our 30+ markets in the U.S., Canada and U.K. have shared with us that they’re delighted to have Stephen sharing his brilliant thought leadership with us at our events and continuing a dialogue around the criticality for CIOs, CISOs, CTOs and other business technology executives to foster trust across the organization and cultivate a high-performance culture.”
