Walt Riker

Spring 2011

Walt Riker has spent more than three decades on the front lines of high pressure, high profile communications. As a former television reporter, Capitol Hill Press Secretary and Vice President of Global Media Relations for McDonald’s, he has been in the center of a virtual 360 degree career in news media, crises, politics, public relations, marketing, message development, issues management, speech writing and strategic thinking.

Riker will examine the progress and challenges of corporations, as they strive to give back to the environment and community, both locally and globally.
