John Mackey, Chairman and CEO of Whole Foods Market(R), and Ellen M. Zane, President and CEO, Tufts Medical Center and the Floating Hospital for Children, Offer Advice to Bentley Students at May 17 Commencement
Date:5/17/2008

"Who will create the conscious businesses of the 21st century? Why not

Bentley graduates? Why don't some of you go out and create conscious

Mackey openly discussed personal and business challenges he has faced over the past year, involving a proposed merger with a competitor and investigations and media criticism over internet postings he made, and the lessons he has learned. "My most valuable lesson has been about the importance of communicating with greater thoughtfulness.
