Tony Hunter is my business hero. As CEO, he led the Chicago Tribune from bankruptcy to becoming the most profitable news organization in America, and he did it all with an unmatched focus on culture, change and a mindset for thinking like the disruptor, not the disrupted. After working with Tony for almost a decade, his leadership skills and ability to invoke passion for change provide practical tools for today’s emerging leaders. We were thrilled to have him be part of our Future Festival, alongside Malcolm Gladwell, where he was one of our highest scoring speakers ever.

- Jeremy Gutsche, CEO of Trend Hunter and New York Times Bestselling Author

Tony has always focused on building leaders and creating an inclusive work environment. I am especially grateful that he is such a champion of developing female leaders.

- Rosina Racioppi, President | CEO Women Unlimited, Inc.
