At heart, Michael Leavitt is a forward-thinking entrepreneur and consensus-building collaborator. Most know him best, however, as a popular and seasoned diplomat, gained from his 40-year-plus career at the top of state and federal government as well as the private sector.
The Atlantic has described him as "quietly powerful." Others might say Leavitt is a hands-on, common sense leader, traits that appealed so highly to the voters of Utah that they elected him Governor for an almost unprecedented three terms.
In 2003, Leavitt was appointed by President Bush as Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, and in 2005, he joined the Cabinet as Secretary of Health and Human Services where he administered nearly 25 percent of the entire federal budget and 67,000 employees.
A talent for systematic innovation and information technology threads itself throughout Leavitt's career as demonstrated by his handling of the Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Program, one of the hallmarks of his HHS post. Leavitt's vision lead to a plan that provided millions of seniors with a new prescription drug benefit that saw enrollments increase, lower prices, and high satisfaction among seniors.
As founder and Chairman of Leavitt Partners, he brings leadership and strategic guidance to the health care and food and import safety industries. An experienced, widely respected statesman with a global outlook, Leavitt shares with audiences his deep expertise in multiple intertwined sectors as well as his passion for improving the safety and well-being of America's most vital services and resources in an era of rapid change.

Health Care Reform in the 21st Century
Healthcare policy is no longer just an exercise in reform; it has become a question of economic policy. One of the greatest lessons Michael Leavitt learned during his time as Secretary of Health and Human Services is that if you are going to reform the healthcare system, you have to change Medicare -- the only system that pervades the entire healthcare environment. Using the lessons of Part D's Medicare drug benefit, Leavitt shares how to improve the country's health care system so that it delivers scorable savings, higher quality, and better value to all Americans.
