“Frank presented the closing session at our 4-day convention and trade show and did a fabulous job. Attendees were exhausted from days of training but he was able to entertain as well as deliver an important message. Great at reading an audience and speaking their language. He is probably the most professional “professional speaker” I have worked with in years!
Meg Collins
Director of Membership Services
Tennessee Health Care Association.

“Frank delivered on every promise, is extremely easy to work with, and an absolute joy to know. He did a three-hour presentation for our Ethics Day and brought such comments as “Best seminar I have attended” “Great presentation!” and “Excellent – really got a lot out of this!!” on evaluations from attendees. This was an event for insurance professionals, including FSP, NAIFA, CPCU, and NAHU members. Perhaps the most telling comment in response to the question of a recommendation for speaker in the future was: “Frank Bucaro” If you haven’t asked Frank to speak, you are missing the boat!”

The Aluminum Extruders Council LOVED having Frank Bucaro deliver his Good Company: Be the Organization That People Want To Work For, Partner With, Invest In and Buy From! presentation. Our audience of senior leaders said they really enjoyed your presentation as well as the way you presented the material. It was a lively, fun and information presentation that was raved about within our group. Our room was captivated by your presentation style and appreciated the humor you appropriately incorporated. We would be thrilled to have you as a return speaker one day!
Thank you again, Frank,

HOW IT WORKS: It all starts with a conversation. In our conversation, I ask questions about types of ethics training people have received, what were the outcomes, what were you pleased or not pleased with and why, what is your current need and why? Once these points are covered and we agree to take the next step, I will ask for a few names to interview and talk with about the ethics climate, needs and expectations of the program. By then I will have done my research on the organization and will “hone down” the approach to be most effective in my presentation/s.
You will find me available and eager to work with you and your team prior, during and after my program to ensure a quality, focused approach. I arrive early and leave late to make myself available for further 1-on-1 discussions.




Headlines about wrong doing at a number of high profile organizations over the past several years have increased the pressure on business leaders to reclaim trust. Leaders are increasingly challenged to find ways to deepen trust, foster collaboration, and build customer loyalty.

This presentation will focus on the unique and powerful role ethical leadership plays in successful organizations today.

Covered in this presentation:

  • The types of ethics and which will serve your organization best.
  • Eight great leadership habits that enhance an ethical culture.
  • How an ethical environment supports leaders’ effectiveness.
  • Four considerations to keep in mind when faced with a difficult decision.

In an upbeat, humorous and entertaining format, this presentation offers practical ideas and techniques to help foster and support ethical leadership.



If Good Ethics is Good Business, What’s the Problem?

It seems that media reports of companies being fined, or accusations of unethical or illegal behavior, are just about a daily feature in news reports. We may even find ourselves asking “how” and “why” this could still be happening with so many organizations focusing on “doing the right thing” and touting a strong ethical culture.
Most folks would agree that solid ethical business practices are desirable, good and necessary for business. This program will explore the five challenges that threaten the reputation of an organization, and will present solutions to keep the focus on solid values and staying on the ethical high road.

The focus will be on:
1. Compliance is not ethics and ethics is not compliance.
2. The Lack of Moral Awareness.
3. “Shades of Gray” ethical thinking.
4. The Death of Bland Training.
5. The Leadership Quagmire.



• The difference between positive and negative ethics and the effect in the workplace on leadership capabilities
• The lack of moral awareness-a critical missing dynamic of building company trust
• Leadership virtues necessary to keep the company culture values-based and principle-driven
• Detailed decision-making processes and techniques to help keep leaders on the high road
• Techniques that are different but compatible when it comes to learning approaches to compliance and ethics
• Two factors to consider in making business decisions and why
