The Forum returns to Columbus

Leadership Reinvented

Columbus State University (CSU) is once again hosting The Forum, one of Georgia’s largest gatherings of business and civic leaders. The 16th annual event will be held Tuesday, Aug. 31, beginning at 9 a.m. at the historic Iron Works, home of the Columbus Convention and Trade Center. This year’s theme is “Leadership Reinvented” and speakers include investor Kat Cole, former COO and president of Focus Brands. Cole is an example of the American entrepreneurial dream, having risen from restaurant hostess at age 17 to company president 15 years later.

For the first time this year, attendees of The Forum can choose to participate in person or virtually. Those viewing virtually will have access to speakers in real time during the event. Also new this year, in-person attendees will be able to have lunch at restaurants in Uptown Columbus, thanks to meal vouchers at partner locations.

Currently enrolled students, faculty and staff at CSU and Columbus Technical College can watch the event live via simulcast at University Hall Auditorium.

Virtual and in-person tickets, tables and sponsorships are available online.
