John Varvatos, Detroit Police Chief Join Lineup at Detroit Leadership Event


With Martha Stewart and National Football Hall of Famer Michael Strahan already slated to speak at the FUEL: Detroit 2016 conference, to be held at the Sound Board inside the MotorCity Casino Hotel in Detroit, FUEL Leadership has announced menswear designer John Varvatos and Detroit Police Chief James Craig will also headline the April 21 event.

“John Varvatos and Chief Craig join a list of locally and nationally renowned speakers who exude energy and passion,” says Josh Linkner, chairman and co-founder of FUEL Leadership. “They are a perfect addition, as their collective wisdom will challenge those to believe in their own talents, experiences, and power to fuel future success.”

Linkner says other speakers include Capt. Mark Kelly, astronaut and husband to former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords; Marcus Buckingham, a New York Times bestselling author on employee productivity and management practices; Jacques Panis, president of Detroit-based Shinola; and Mitch Albom, Detroit Free Press columnist and best selling author.

WJR 760-AM morning show host Paul W. Smith will emcee the daylong event.

At last year’s inaugural FUEL: Detroit conference, Jessica Alba, founder of The Honest Co., and Mark Fields, president and CEO of Ford Motor Co., and Magic Johnson, among others, spoke.
