Lecture Description

He was Deal-A-Day Dennis, a CEO admired on Wall Street who built a small, unknown Tyco into a powerhouse that acquired company after company.  Dennis Kozlowskis life was a rags-to-riches American story  until he and his associates were indicted in 2002 and accused in a $600 million racketeering scheme. Even after Enron, Martha Stewart, and Gordon Gekko, it was Kozlowski who became the face of corporate greed. Catherine Neals Taking Down the Lion is the definitive telling of this important yet largely misunderstood episode in U.S. business history.
