About Keynote Speaker Lynn Brewer

The Economist called her “The real Enron whistleblower.” Recognized by the Nobel Peace Centre for her courage and leadership, Lynn Brewer is the founder and CEO of The Integrity Institute. She is an outspoken opponent of what she calls “Regulation Theory.” In 2002, what was seen as pervasive fraud in our capital markets was perceived yet again as a mere, albeit painful, market correction in 2007.  Lynn Brewer was in a unique position to predict both of these crashes. For nearly three years, she worked as a mid-level executive in risk management at Enron, where she witnessed numerous instances of illegal and corrupt dealings, including bank fraud, espionage, power price manipulation, and the gross overstatements to the press, public, and financial world.

After leaving the energy giant in 2000 and blowing the whistle on the company, chronicled in her 2002 autobiography Confessions of an Enron Executive: A Whistleblower’s Story Lynn Brewer presciently wrote, Look to Enron to foretell the future.”Recognizing that human behavior drives corporate performance, in 2005, Lynn foreshadowed the crash of 2007 in a letter to Warren Buffett, on the eve of giving a keynote address to Berkshire Hathaway’s elite group of CFOs.

Today, after more than ten years of research and development, Lynn Brewer and The Integrity Institute are changing the way we rate public companies—no longer based on the next quarter’s projected performance, but by predicting whether the company’s performance is sustainable. As Nobel Prize winner Joseph Stiglitz rightly pointed out, “Standard models should be graded on their predictive ability – and especially their ability to predict in circumstances that matter. Fortunately, while much of the mainstream focused on flawed models, numerous researchers were engaged in developing alternative approaches.”Lynn Brewer is one of those researchers.

The foundation of Lynn Brewer’s research involves predicting sustainable performance of public companies based upon a pattern of behaviors that have proven to exist in companies like Enron, BearStearns, Lehman Brothers and Washington Mutual. After more than ten years of research and development, she is offering her work to the world with the release of the first-ever Integrity Index ratings–which will rate the structural integrity of every public company beginning with those listed on the U.S. exchanges.
