Silver Anniversary Florida Forum
The Florida Forum is an annual speaker series begun in 1992 and produced by The Women’s Board. Proceeds from this esteemed benefit provide funding for select areas and programs to enhance the only in-patient, pediatric hospital in the region.
The Forums have enriched the intellectual and cultural life of Jacksonville for over two decades, while contributing almost $7 million to Wolfson Children’s Hospital. This year’s series is presented by Wells Fargo, Landstar Systems, Inc. and Florida Blue.
The world-class series—featuring monarchs, entertainers, pundits, influential thinkers, business heavyweights, heads of state, and more—has welcomed a veritable “who’s who” of engrossing speakers, including Peyton Manning, Sir Richard Branson, Tom Wolfe, Queen Noor of Jordan, Anderson Cooper, Cal Ripkin, Jr., General Colin Powell, Barbara Walters, Former Prime Ministers Margaret Thatcher, Benazir Bhutto, Tony Blair and Ehud Barak, Former Secretary of Defense Dr. Robert M. Gates and Presidents George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.
