I am pleased to endorse Mal Bass and the Global Executive Forum Group. During my first presidency at Urbana University in Ohio, I joined presidents from a variety of industries in a group facilitated by Mal. It was an engaging experience wherein CEOs were encouraged to learn from each other and share ideas with one another. Feedback, encouragement, and mentorship were continually present.
Some would say that leadership in a non-profit institution of higher education is completely different than what is needed in a for-profit corporation. What we learned each week was that the similarities far outweighed the differences as we spoke of strategies to increase revenues domestically and globally; marketing tactics; client satisfaction; etc. Mal was masterful in engaging the group and in individual meetings with each member.
I was fortunate to have had the experience early in my presidency. Many of the valued lessons from my Global Executive Forum Group experience influenced my presidential actions at both Urbana and Rockford University following.
If I can provide additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
