The New York Times' Adam Bryant to speak on leadership, management

Adam Bryant, Corner Office columnist at The New York Times, has been a journalist for more than 20 years. He has spent much of that time in business reporting, getting insights on leadership and management from dozens of CEOs. Bryant will share those insights and more at a lecture on Tuesday, May 21, at 4 p.m. in the McCormick Tribune Center Forum, 1870 Campus Drive, Evanston.


Bryant started his Corner Office column in 2009 and it quickly attracted a large and loyal audience. The feature appears twice weekly, including in the Sunday Business Times. His interviews from the column formed the basis of his book, “The Corner Office: Indispensable and Unexpected Lessons from CEOs on How to Lead and Succeed,” which will be available for purchase at the lecture. 

Bryant’s next book, on creating a corporate culture of innovation, will be published in January 2014 by TimesBooks.

He served as the lead editor of a series on the dangers of distracted driving that won the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting in 2010. Bryant has served many roles at The New York Times, including business reporter, deputy business editor, deputy national editor and senior editor for features. He was also a senior writer and business editor at Newsweek magazine.

The event is free and open to the public. A reception and book signing will follow the lecture.
