Berry Welcomes Steve Forbes as Shatto Lecturer

Berry College welcomes Forbes Magazine Editor-in-Chief Steve Forbes as the Gloria Shatto Lecture Series guest speaker March 31.

The chairman and CEO of Forbes Media and former Republican presidential candidate will speak about his newest book “How Capitalism Will Save Us” at 8 p.m. in the Steven J. Cage Athletic and Recreation Center.

Admission is free, but tickets are required for entry. Cultural events credit is available for both the lecture itself as well as a classroom discussion scheduled for 4:15 p.m. the same in day in Green Hall Room 306.

Ticket distribution for students, faculty and staff begins Thursday (March 10.) Student tickets will be distributed at the information desk in Krannert Center. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. Due to expected demand, a two-ticket limit will be enforced for each student through March 25, after which time two additional tickets may be obtained (if available). Students have until noon March 29, to pick up tickets. The remainder will be released to the general public at that time.

Faculty/staff tickets will be available through the cashier’s window in Hermann Hall (maximum of two.) Hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays. Faculty/staff distribution ends March 29.

A limited number of tickets will be distributed to the general public. Please call 706-236-2226 for details.

Forbes follows in the footsteps of former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, Super Bowl-winning coach Tony Dungy and renowned neurosurgeon Benjamin S. Carson Sr. in sharing his experiences with Berry students and the local community thanks to the endowed lectureship named for Berry’s sixth president.

Under his leadership, Forbes’ company has launched a variety of new publications and businesses. They include: Forbes Life, Forbes Woman, and Forbes Asia. In 1996 Forbes entered the new media arena with Now receiving more than 18 million unique monthly visitors, it has become a leading site for business decision makers and investors. The company’s flagship publication, Forbes, is the nation’s leading business magazine, with a circulation of more than 900,000. Forbes combined with Forbes Asia and the company's licensee editions together reach more than 5.5 million readers.

In 1996 and 2000, Forbes also campaigned for the Republican nomination for the presidency.

Forbes’ latest book is co-authored by Elizabeth Ames. He also authored “Power Ambition Glory: The Stunning Parallels between Great Leaders of the Ancient World and Today . . . and the Lessons You Can Learn,” with John Prevas; “Flat Tax Revolution: Using a Postcard to Abolish the IRS;” and “A New Birth of Freedom.”

Forbes’ lecture is sponsored in part by Young America’s Foundation.

The Gloria Shatto Lecture Series honors the memory of Georgia’s first female college president. Shatto, who served from 1980-1998, believed strongly that there is more to a college education than what can be learned in the classroom. The Shatto Lecture Series honors her vision by bringing to Berry speakers of international renown.
