On March 20, 2015, Forum 35 was joined by John Georges for its March Forum Friday luncheon at Juban’s restaurant. Mr. Georges is the publisher of The Advocate and a Louisiana entrepreneur whose diverse portfolio includes Imperial Trading Company and Galatoire’s Restaurants. The theme of Mr. Georges’ presentation was “The Passing of the Torch,” focusing on generational shifts in business and civic leadership and the importance of diversity within the leadership of his businesses.

Mr. Georges’ presentation was followed by a Q&A session covering topics including his philosophy in acquiring and managing businesses, his goals for continued growth of The Advocate, and the importance of young professionals like those in Forum 35 to business and community growth.

Forum Friday is Forum 35’s monthly membership luncheon, featuring a three-course lunch, and a presentation from a guest speaker focusing on issues crucial to the needs and concerns of Baton Rouge’s young professionals and leaders.
