I was recently invited to attend the annual President's Forum by The Entrepreneurship Institute in Boston. Although originally skeptical, I found the one day event to be extremely informative and enjoyable. Attending the event were roughly 100 CEO's from many successful organizations throughout New England and three guest lecturers that have experienced a significant amount of accomplishment in their careers.
