Leadership Forum Events
Begun in 2013, the Gwinnett Leadership Forum is a grassroots effort of leaders within the community who wanted to uncover and communicate the essence and meaning of true leadership. To accomplish this purpose, GLF hosts a bi-annual breakfast featuring a recognizable speaker within the private/public sector who shares from their personal experiences and offers insights on being a stronger leader.

A graduate of Baylor University, Randy also holds two advanced degrees from Southwestern. Randy is the co-author of Remarkable!, a leadership parable that illustrates the power of applied axiology to guide organizations toward the creation of a more compelling and collaborative culture, based upon Value Creation. Relationomics: Business Powered by Relationships, is packed with principles and practices to help leaders craft a relationally rich culture.
Before founding Remarkable!, Randy led several not-for-profit entities in Texas and Florida, was VP of Recruiting for a large regional mortgage corporation, based in Atlanta, and later became the Chief People Officer of North American. He and his wife, LuAnne, live in Roswell, Georgia, and have four children.
In order to build upon the ideas shared at our bi-annual forums, short-term Leadership Roundtables are established to provide participants with an opportunity for a more in-depth discussion. Led by facilitator guides, these groups of anywhere from 4 to 8 people typically meet for approx. one hour per week for around six weeks.
For more information on our roundtables, or if you are interested in participating, please contact us at [email protected].

“I really enjoy my time with the Gwinnett Leadership Forum. It’s wonderful to be a part of a group that focuses on developing leadership qualities and the individuals involved, but the subgroups are really where the magic happens. I was fortunate to join and meet a wonderful group of leaders in the community that I never would have met otherwise. The fellowship, learning, and lasting impact is something I am really grateful for.”Kevin Ford
