About the Florida Forum

Since 1992, the Florida Forum has been honored to host renowned speakers from around the world offering profound insights and fascinating discussion on a broad range of issues.  Pulitzer Prize and Nobel Peace Prize winners, world leaders, political figures, distinguished authors and other celebrated personalities have enlightened and inspired our audiences for 27 years.

Patrons subscribe to the series and following each lecture an open forum is generally held when patrons are invited to ask questions of the guest speaker. Private receptions for major contributors and the featured guest speaker accompany each  Florida Forum. Come experience a season of dynamic and entertaining speakers.

Presented by The Women’s Board, this phenomenal series raises awareness and funds for Wolfson Children’s Hospital. Our 2019-2020 speakers provided us with three amazing evenings of insight and discussion on a variety of enlightening topics. We are all looking forward to a night at the Forum.
