Last February, the Northland Foundation co-hosted an Anderson Center Forum in Grand Rapids. This one-and-one-half day session immersed owners and top managers from “The Anderson Center Forum we co-hosted last year was very well done.” ~Tom Renier, Northland Foundation Presidentseven closely held northeastern Minnesota businesses in succession strategy discussion. Typical of Anderson Center Forums, the agenda included actual case studies that engaged participants in diagnosing real-life problems, evaluating opportunities, analyzing data, recommending solutions, and discussing and presenting their thoughts to experienced classmates.

Stated one participant following the Forum: “It was by far the best seminar I have ever attended. It provided us with so much information that we need to know and work on.”

The Northland Foundation has a limited number of scholarships available to help smaller businesses and nonprofits that otherwise might not be able to afford tuition. Contact the Foundation to inquire.

“The Anderson Center Forum we co-hosted last year was very well done,” said Tom Renier, Northland Foundation President, “and I came away convinced that business and nonprofit leaders in our region would find value in their high-impact approach to key business management topics.”
