NCEITA, the North Carolina Electronics and Information Technologies Association, is pleased to announce that Dan Sharp, the President & CEO of the Royal Institution World Science Assembly, will be one of its keynote speakers at the 10th Annual Information Technology forum, A CEO Conversation: Insight to Innovation, on Wednesday, March 17, 2004.

Sharp will discuss what the Royal Institution World Science Assembly (RiSci) is doing to enhance the science literacy of global policy-makers and the policy literacy of global science and technology leaders. The RiSci convenes world leaders from all relevant sectors on urgent science and technology issues.

Before joining the Royal Institution World Science Assembly (RiSci), Sharp served for 15 years as the President and CEO of The American Assembly, of which he was named its first Emeritus President & CEO. Sharp was also the General Coordinator of The Conference on Democratic Transition and Consolidation, convened in Spain, with the personal invitation of King Juan Carlos and Mikhail Gorbachev. Sharp continues as a key advisor to the permanent Club of Madrid, created by unanimous resolution of the presidents.

Sharp worked with Xerox Corporation for the twenty years before leading The American Assembly. While at Xerox, he designed and implemented their world-wide international business environment assessment program and directed a variety of international and public affairs offices.

Sharp is on the faculty of the Aspen Institute, where he leads executive seminars for corporate boards of directors and other leading executives and has been an Adjunct Professor of International and Public Affairs, teaching a graduate seminar on global business strategy at Columbia University.

Sharp's government service includes being with the United States Delegation to the United Nations (Economic and Social Council - ECOSOC) and as an official U.S. Government delegate to international meetings. He negotiated five international treaties for the U.S., created and directed the Peace Corps' training center for overseas staff, took the first volunteers to Peru, and directed operations in the Andes. He previously served for two years as Deputy Attorney- General of California, where he handled cases from trial through appeals at the State Supreme Court, and was liaison with all levels of local and state government.

Sharp is an active member of many public policy institutions, including The Council on Foreign Relations and the President's Advisory Board of The Eisenhower Exchange Fellowships. He was chairman for seven years of the Advisory Board of the Council of the Americas, the leading organization of U.S. corporations in Latin America. He served on several university advisory committees, such as the Institute of Public Policy (Duke University), a similar board at the Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy and the program on International Business Diplomacy (Georgetown University). He is also a member of the Century Association in New York City.

Sharp was the U.S. Editor of The European Business Journal and his publications include a book on U.S. foreign policy, chapters in many books and journals, and various op-ed pieces in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, San Francisco Chronicle and the International Herald Tribune. Fortune Magazine also profiled Sharp in its special competitiveness issue as one of "25 Who Help the U.S. Win."
