“Driving home from my first visit to the Leadership Forum I said to myself, 'I've found my tribe.' This amazing group of leaders made me feel instantly welcome and that my contribution was genuinely valued. In only two short visits, I have learned, shared and made friends for life. Truly extraordinary."
- Rob Salafia, Executive Coach
"This was my first time attending and speaking the LFC annual event. I was welcomed warmly into the community and felt a sense of camaraderie and shared values with the various members. The quality of the conversations and presentations was excellent and gave me points of reflection on many counts. It really felt like being around kindred spirits. I am impressed by the ability of the LFC to bring together all of these practitioners in the leadership development space. It creates a potent space for learning and connection. Thank you.

"This will be my 11th time attending the Leadership Forum at Silver Bay in the last 12 years. What keeps me coming back? Where do I start! The networking, the conversations, the relationships, the learning, the activities...all happening on the unbelievably beautiful and rejuvenating shores of Lake George. But if I had to narrow it down to just ONE thing, just one word, it's all about the people...the wonderfully amazing people, and the relationships you develop, and the feeling of community that exists not only during the conference, but long afterwards. There really is no other leadership conference like it...and that's probably why it's been around for 101 years."

"You know how incredibly curious you get when you hear some of the
people you most admire talk about the wonders of a specific event
and time again? That was me with the Leadership Forum Community.
I was itching to attend -- I had hear sooo many fabulous things about
it over the past couple of years...Well, it turns out those things I had
heard didn't do it justice to the LFC, it was a million times better! My
expectations were surpassed in every way; the logistics and organization
were impeccable, the topics oh-so-interesting, relevant and timely, but
more importantly, the people...To say that I felt at home is an understatement.
Rarely have I attended an event where I made so many friends with whom
I want to continue to stay in touch and be a part of their tribe. I had the
best experience and can't wait for more;. I cannot recommend it enough!"

"I felt an instant sense of connection and belonging when I first joined the Leadership Forum Community. This global community values each individual’s contributions, creates shared space for thinking and discussing, and learns and grows together, all while making personal connections a priority. The collaborative and proactive approach to addressing current needs gives me new tools I can apply to my professional work and challenges me to better myself as a leader and colleague."

“The Leadership Forum at SB is unlike anything I have ever been to in my career. It is an annual culmination of leaders, students, educators, entrepreneurs in nature, solving leadership problems with diverse perspectives. I left with 100+ friends and connections that were incredibly meaningful.”
- Donna Scarola
"The Leadership Forum at Silver Bay has truly changed my life. I met some amazing people during the conference - one of whom became my mentor. This mentor has spent countless hours coaching me on a number of different development areas. I’ve seen tremendous growth in myself thanks to the connections I made at the LFSB."
