Forbes is chairman and editor-in-chief of Forbes Media. He also campaigned for the Republican presidential nomination in 1996 and 2000. His newest project, What's Ahead, is a podcast where he engages the world's top newsmakers, politicians and pioneers in business and economics in honest conversations meant to challenge traditional conventions. 

"Steve Forbes has been an honest and reliable national leader in the publishing world and public service for decades," Jason Wallace, Stockham Chair of Western Intellectual History and colloquium organizer, said. "He possesses a wealth of experience, wisdom and common sense that must be heard in our uncertain political climate. I am grateful he is speaking to our community this fall."
