Antonio was vetted and selected by a review committee based on the depth and diversity of his experience. Criteria for acceptance include a track record of successfully impacting on business growth metrics, as well as personal and professional achievements and honours.
“We are honoured to welcome Antonio Tombanane into the community,” said Scott Gerber, founder of Forbes Councils, the collective that includes Forbes Business Council.
“Our mission with Forbes Councils is to bring together proven leaders from every industry, creating a curated, social capital-driven network that helps every member grow professionally and make an even greater impact on the business world.”
As an accepted member of the council, Antonio has access to a variety of exclusive opportunities designed to help him reach peak professional influence. He will connect and collaborate with other respected local leaders in a private forum and at members-only events. Antonio will also be invited to work with a professional editorial team to share his expert insights in original business articles on Forbes.com, and to contribute to published Q&A panels alongside other experts.
Finally, GBE Connect will benefit from exclusive access to vetted business service partners, membership-branded marketing collateral, and the support of the Forbes Council’s member concierge team.
Antonio said: “It is an honour to be part of such a ground-breaking council of entrepreneurs. The Forbes Council community is made up of the world’s leading business experts, and I am proud to be among them. I hope to use this opportunity to showcase the Humber region and the innovative technology which is being created here.”
