Business forum to offer expert insight for 2021

Staff Report //December 14, 2020

Steve Forbes will kickoff the 2021 Business Forum in January. (Photo/Provided)Businesses weathered many challenges in 2020 and will no doubt face more in 2021. The 21st Century Business Forum, a monthly webcast presented by the Columbia Regional Business Report, will offer insight and advice from top executives, experts and thought leaders in fields ranging from communications to football to help navigate the year ahead.

The series, hosted in a question-and-answer format by best-selling author Jon Gordon, begins Jan. 13 with guest Steve Forbes, chairman and editor-in-chief of Forbes Media. Other guests will appear on the second Wednesday of each month, including author and leadership expert John Maxwell in February and author Renee Mauborgne in March.

Gordon is the author of best-selling books including “The Power of Positive Leadership” and “The Coffee Bean,” while Mauborgne is the author of “Blue Ocean Strategy” and “Blue Ocean Shift.” In 2019, she and co-author Chan Kim were named the No. 1 management thinkers in the world by Thinkers50.

Future guests will include Nick Saban, who has won five national championships as head football coach at Alabama and will address team-building, along with authors Josh Linkner and Brian Solis.

Registration for the 21st Century Business Forum is free at
