    About Speaker:

    Mr. Anthony Reed, CPA, PMP is an IT professional with twenty-five years in management and executive positions for various Fortune 500 companies, governmental entities, and large consulting firms. The responsibilities included managing multi-million dollar departmental budgets and staffing blends of international, multi-generational, multi-cultural employees and consultants. He’s also an international endurance athlete, who has won age group and weight division trophies. He fuses these two unique backgrounds to lead project teams.

     He’s been interviewed on radio and webcast programs and featured in the business, travel, and sports sections of major newspapers and publications across the country. This includes the PMI Today, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Dallas Morning News, Runner’s World, Southern Living, Ebony, and the Journal of Accountancy.

     He holds two graduate degrees and two undergraduate degrees. He’s also taught collegiate business management courses. He’s served on the Board of Directors for Running USA, the Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG), Ft. Worth’s Jubilee Theatre, the Dallas Marathon, and various local and international not-for-profit organizations.

     He has spoken at national and international business conferences. This includes over 150 project management, leadership, CIO, supply chain, and technology engagements. He has five books and over 50 articles published. The articles have appeared in ComputerWorld, Datamation, Career Focus, and even Runner’s World magazines. His latest, 208-page book, entitled Running to Leadership: What Finishing 100+ Marathons On All Seven Continents Teaches Us About Success, focuses on building stronger team members.

     As a Certified Running Coach, he completed 130 marathons (26.2 miles/42.2K). He’s one of about 50 people in the world, who completed the marathon hat trick. He finished (1) over 100 marathons on (2) all seven continents and (3) in 50 States. This included the frigid Antarctica, Kenya’s dangerous Lewa SafriCom, and China’s Great Wall Marathons. (By comparison, over 2,500 people have reached Mt. Everest’s summit, including over 500 in one year.) Subsequently, his journeys were chronicled in his book, Running Shoes Are Cheaper Than Insulin: Marathon Adventures On All Seven Continents.
