"I greatly enjoyed my experience with the Fellows Forum, which was well designed for the discussion of the issues facing our economy. Tampa is an important city in the Southeast, and I welcomed the opportunity to address the business leaders in the Tampa Bay area."

— Dennis Lockhart, President & CEO, Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta – 2009 Forum Speaker

“The Fellows Forum was a unique event presenting the opportunity to speak to over 800 of the Tampa Bay area’s business leaders. Sharing the stage with two other CEO’s with a national footprint created a platform to discuss current, relevant business issues that are challenging us all each day. The openness and responsiveness of the audience was exceptional. The University of Tampa has a well established program that allows a CEO to showcase their business but also to connect with business leaders in a very personal way. It was an outstanding experience.”

— Peter Beck, Managing Director, The BECK Group – 2008 Forum Speaker
