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.
We are pleased to announce our speaker for April 16, 2019 Gwinnett Leadership Forum Event from 7:30 a.m to 9:00 a.m.
The event will be held at the 1818 Club within the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce building, located at 6500 Sugarloaf Parkway, Duluth, GA 30097.

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
