2009, Forbes Magazine

In 2009, a Romanian media trust acquired the license for editing the Romanian edition of the Forbes Magazine. Beyond Borders, our strategic business unit played a significant role in the official launching of the magazine, facilitating the speeches of four world-famous personalities.

Donald Trump and Steve Forbes opened the event, adopting a spectacular speech format that is a first on the Romanian market: the two famous media tycoons deliver their addresses via satellite.

Next gave their speeches two much-acclaimed personalities: Edmund Phelps, the winner of the 2006 Nobel Prize in Economic Science, and Leszek Balcerowicz, the former chairman of The National Bank of Poland and Poland’s Deputy Prime Minister.
