Taste of Forum: Navigate Life Issues with Trusted HBS Peers

Tuesday, September 19, 2023 7pm to 8:30pm

At this fragile and uncertain time in the world, we may question our competence, priorities, or decisions. We need a place where we can take off our masks (at least figuratively), be vulnerable, and discuss what really matters. 

For the last thirteen years HBS Association of Boston’s alumni forums have offered members that kind of safe port in a stormy world.  Current forum members appreciate their monthly meetings now more than ever, and this special program invites all Boston-area alumni to a “pop-up” one-time forum meeting on Tuesday, September 19 from 7:00PM - 8:30PM.

If you cannot attend but are interested in joining an HBS Alumni forum or in attending future events of this type, please click here.

In this session, you will learn key forum principles and participate in a Zoom breakout forum meeting with a small group of fellow alumni, facilitated by a current HBS Association of Boston forum member.  Topics to be discussed will be decided by each breakout forum, but all conversations will be governed by forum principles of confidentiality, no judgment, and a willingness to share challenges openly so all may benefit.

Inspired by similar programs at Young Presidents Organization and Entrepreneurs Organization, hundreds of HBS alumni have participated in HBS alumni forums since 2009. These small peer groups offer each member a personal "board of directors" to help guide you through difficult decisions, grow your business, and build stronger relationships.  Learn more about HBSAB alumni forums here.

This event will be facilitated by Al Nierenberg (MBA '90) and assisted by additional members of the Alumni Forums Council.
