AGORA

Where Extraordinary Minds Gather

One of the most complex questions business leaders face is how to surround themselves with a thoughtfully curated network that can provide the depth, acumen, and experience to broaden their knowledge base. How to make connections that will challenge them to dig deeper, think differently, and gain a better understanding of who they are.

In 2021, Jeff Mariola launched the first AGORA Forum executive membership group. The idea was to bring together growth-minded senior executives from diverse backgrounds, generations, and geographies to a live virtual learning environment where they could:

  Stay current on best practices

  Get exposure to today’s top business thought leaders

  Bring their business issues to the group for resolution

  Share their transformation experiences with their team members

Why AGORA Forum versus other executive membership groups?

  Half-day live virtual forum optimizes an executive’s most precise asset – time. No full-day meetings with added travel time.
  With a maximum group size of 8, you get more time to dig deeper into processing and resolve key issues in your business.
  The live virtual environment allows for optimal best practice sharing with executive participation from across North America, giving you a complete geographic perspective on current trends and economic challenges.
  Not a CEO-only platform. AGORA Forum is intentionally designed to leverage the talent across all C-suite positions and age groups.
  High accountability – all AGORA Forums begin and end with individual members’ commitments and takeaways.
  Documented minutes, bi-weekly newsletters, and periodic best practice sharing messages from leading subject matter experts.
  Due to the lack of corporate overhead, Agora delivers equal value to members at half the investment of competing executive groups.
