On Jan. 13, Steve Forbes, chairman and editor-in-chief of Forbes Media and a former presidential candidate, will kick off a monthly webinar series of featured speakers in 2021 as part of the 21st Century Business Forum, hosted in association with DBusiness magazine.
The genesis for the forum is to provide insight, ideas, and inspiration from top businesspeople and thought leaders in America to entrepreneurs, small business owners, and executives as they face unprecedented change in the marketplace.
Each webinar will begin at 11 a.m., and repeat on the second Wednesday of each month. The Business Forum, which will run for 45 minutes, will be hosted by best-selling business author Jon Gordon, who will interview guests in a Q&A format.
Gordon’s books and talks have inspired readers and audiences around the world. His principles have been utilized by Fortune 500 companies, professional and college sports teams, school districts, hospitals, and nonprofits.
His first guest, Forbes, is a widely respected economic prognosticator and the only writer to win the prestigious Crystal Owl Award four times. His latest project is a podcast, “What’s Ahead,” where he engages the world’s top newsmakers, politicians, and pioneers in business and economics, challenging traditional conventions as well as featuring Forbes’ signature views on the intersection of society, economics, and policy.
The 21st Century Business Forum’s February guest 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.”
Future guests include University of Alabama Head Football Coach Nick Saban, who will address teambuilding; entrepreneur and author Josh Linkner from West Bloomfield; and Brian Solis, author and global innovation evangelist for Salesforce.
The 21st Century Business Forum is presented by the Greater Baton Rouge Business Report and DBusiness, both of which are owned by Hour Media in Troy.
