Business Forum to feature Steve Forbes, other thought leaders

Jan 7, 2021 | Member News

Entering a new year presents challenges and opportunities for entrepreneurs, small-business owners and executives. Securing guidance from top experts and global thought leaders can help navigate those changes. That’s the idea behind the 21st Century Business Forum.

Beginning Jan. 13, and repeating on the second Wednesday of each month, the Business Forum will be hosted by best-selling author Jon Gordon. January’s guest is Steve Forbes, editor-in-chief of Forbes Media and former presidential candidate.

Following him in February is best-selling author and leadership expert John Maxwell. In March, Gordon will interview Renee Mauborgne, author of best-sellers Blue Ocean Strategy and Blue Ocean Shift. In 2019, Mauborgne and her co-author, Chan Kim, were honored by Thinkers50 as the No. 1 management thinkers in the world.

Future guests include Coach Nick Saban, one of the most-successful coaches in college football history, on the topic of team-building; entrepreneur and author Josh Linkner; and Brian Solis, author and global innovation evangelist for Salesforce.

The Business Forum is designed to provide insight, ideas and inspiration from top business people and thought leaders to entrepreneurs, small-business owners and executives as they face unprecedented change in the marketplace in 2021.

The 21st Century Business Forum is presented by BizWest and Ehrlich Motors. Registration is free at
