Our Unique Format

What Makes Us Different?

The Houston Strategy Forum is a highly interactive discussion forum, not a presentation forum. No speeches, no PowerPoint presentations. 

Our business talk show format facilitates an energetic, meaningful, and respectful exchange between our speakers and attendees. Our unscripted format often creates "insightful learning opportunities." We receive rave reviews about our format from speakers and attendees. 

To encourage an open and candid discussion we follow Chatham House rules.
