Project Earth: Dr. Frank King’s PMI’90 Keynote

Transcript of keynote speech at PMI’s 1990 symposium added to the PMWL

24 August 2019 – Dallas, London, Sydney – Access to a new resource has been added to the PM World Library related to climate change and solving global problems.  The resource is titled “Project Earth: Dr. Frank King’s Keynote Address at 1990 PMI Symposium in Calgary” and is a transcript of Dr. King’s tremendous keynote speech about global environmental catastrophe so many years ago.

Dr. King started with the following: “At the beginning of the 80’s the popular trends were junk food, junk bonds and plain everyday junk. But the excesses of the 80’s had been transformed into widespread public support for oat bran, conventional financing and sustainable development by the beginning of the 90’s.  Let’s take a look at what might happen to our planet now that so many people are “lying down in green pastures.’”

In 1990, Dr. Frank W. King was president and CEO of Environcorp, Inc. and former Chair and CEO of OCO’88, the group responsible for organizing the XV Olympic Winter Games in Calgary. Dr. King received the Olympic Order of Gold from the International Olympic Committee, the highest personal award of the Olympic Movement, for his role in motivating 10,000 volunteers into the group that staged the highly-successful 1988 winter Olympics.  His keynote presentation at PMI’s 1990 symposium captivated the audience like never before.
