Trust issues, leadership missteps, and ethics problems can threaten any organization, impact market value, and cause irreversible damage. Frank C. Bucaro helps leaders and individuals at the best and most admired companies skillfully navigate the high road to success. His unique career path from the classroom to the board room began some years ago when a succession of high-profile media reports captured his attention. While still an instructor of moral theology, he became increasingly aware that problems relating to unethical practices in the marketplace seemed to be on the increase.

Believing that ethics and values had the power to increase business success rather than impede it, Frank left teaching and formed a business partnership offering keynotes and seminars. The transition to business owner was nearly seamless with the introduction of his first keynote entitled HOW DO YOU SPELL SUCCESS? E-T-H-I-C-S!


Word spread about his entertaining and humorous approach to the serious subject of ethics, and soon large and small organizations, Fortune 500 companies, and associations in the USA and Canada were contacting Frank about his programs. Participants continue to be inspired by Frank’s high content, humorous, and practical programs, which serve as encouraging reminders of the power of ethics and values-based leadership. His programs are a natural fit with organizations interested in reinforcing their commitment to ethics and values and reducing vulnerability to costly ethics and compliance problems.

He is a business owner and author of the book The Trust Puzzle: How to Keep Your Company on the Ethical High Road. His articles have been published in a variety of industry publications and ethics and compliance magazines such as Compliance & Ethics Professional, Corporate Compliance INSIGHTS, ETHIKOS, and ETHISPHERE.

A member of the National Speakers Association, he has earned the designation of CSP, which stands for Certified Speaking Professional, and he was also presented with the NSA’s prestigious CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame Award for excellence and professionalism. Frank continues to WOW his audiences with results-driven content on why good ethics is good business. Frank's unique style balances evidence-based research, with practical applications in an engaging, often humorous, and entertaining manner.

"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

I’ve known and trusted Frank for many years after first seeing him do an amazing keynote. Later, I had Frank help us build a company code of ethics which served to guide us during rapid growth. Most recently, I had Frank in to conduct a 90-minute ethics workshop for my Midwest leaders. He’s energetic, passionate, funny, and one of the top experts in the world on the topic of ethical leadership.
