Forum Launches


Forum (def):

A group of 8-10 non-competing CEOs, executives, presidents or entrepreneurs that meet on a regular basis to share and learn from each others’ experiences. In a completely confidential environment, members explain how they tackle challenges, navigate change and spur action in their personal and professional lives.

For over 20 years, Forum Resources Network has been providing initial and ongoing training and retreat facilitation to thousands of YPO, WPO, and EO members, in addition to members of industry groups, such as the Virginia Council of CEOs and Harvard Business School Alumni groups.


Forum Training provides the foundation to establishing group communication models where by each member can learn and grow and marks the beginning of a group’s relationship.


Moderator Training equips each forum’s elected Moderator with the tools to lead a forum effectively and dynamically.The Moderator is then equipped to take on the role of arbiter to deal with challenges and proper training is essential for new moderators and for forum health.


A group’s annual retreat is a time to step back in order to assess and evaluate current learning needs in the group. Although it’s a significant investment of time and energy, an annual retreat allows your members to reaffirm their commitment to each other, build trust and address conflicts within the group.

A Mini Forum Retreat is amid-year opportunity between annual retreats and occurs during a designated monthly meeting. This is an opportunity to engage in activities that build stronger bonds and deeper levels of trust

Train the Trainer - A qualified facilitator draws upon a wealth of personal and professional experience with scores of forums when guiding your group through its annual retreat, ensuring that each member of your group participates on equal footing. By engaging a professional facilitator, you’ll have a catalyst to address whatever issues exist in your forum—whether it’s mediating a complex situation or sparking a time of deep growth.
