Lee Burbage, People Fool At The Motley Fool, if it has to do with people, Lee is likely leading the charge. Lee, a graduate of the University of Maryland, has been with the Fool since 1998 when he joined from Bank of America. At Bank of America, he was a Regional Human Resources Manager covering Maryland, Northern Virginia, and Washington, D.C. Much of his work focused on mergers and acquisitions, building a sales culture, and management development in the retail business. At the Fool, our boy is not your typical HR executive. Lee has been able to shape an incredible culture where people use their passion and skills to deliver for our business. Often quoted and interviewed for our creative, market-leading HR practices, Lee is best known for his jump shot and great hair. At the Motley Fool, Lee and Sam, Professional Boat Rockers and Envelope Pushers and Brain Expanders, are reconstructing the foundations of human and organizational development. The idea of work/life balance assumes that each happens separately. Your life doesn't stop when you come to work. With a foundation of trust, respect they push the boundaries for performance and autonomy challenging and destroying long held "professional standards." About TEDx: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
