Forbes Communications Council Is an Invitation-Only Community for Executives in Communications, Marketing, and PR.
Lost Boy Entertainment founder and Bentley Records PR Executive Christian Anderson, more famously known as the artist Trust’N, publically announced accepted into Forbes Communications Council, an invitation-only community for executives in communications, marketing, and public relations.
Christian Anderson 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 business growth metrics, as well as personal and professional achievements and honors. For Christian, these achievements include but aren’t limited to: marketing his own hip hop album “Lapse” to a world charting position, being the youngest person ever to hold a seat as an executive PR for Bentley Records, and finally, successfully establishing his own marketing and PR firm called Lost Boy Entertainment Company. More impressively, all these were achieved while being a full-time student at the University of Wisconsin- La Crosse.
“We are honored to welcome Christian into the community,” said Scott Gerber, founder of Forbes Councils, the collective that includes Forbes Communications 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, Christian 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. Christian 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, Christian will benefit from exclusive access to vetted business service partners, membership-branded marketing collateral, and the high-touch support of the Forbes Councils member concierge team.
Christian commented on the achievement by saying:
“I am honored to be the youngest person ever to be named a member of this council. As I sit here typing this I think back to that kid who used to lay in bed dreaming. I think about the kid who started music despite feeling awkward and self-conscious about it. I just want to say whatever it is you want to do: you can truly do it. I also want to say thank you because to say this was all my doing would be far from the truth. I owe a thank you to my parents, my teachers, my mentors, my fans, my business partners, and colleagues who push me to be my best every day. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for so many people supporting me. Over the last few months, I have realized my calling is to also work with artists, not just be one. I hope to use this platform to educate and help young entrepreneurs and artists achieve whatever dreams they may have. To use my knowledge and gifts to inspire future generations. I am truly blessed that I get to wake up each day knowing I’m exactly where I want to be, doing what I love to do. I’m excited for this next chapter of my life and I know God has a plan for me greater than I can even fathom. That’s just becoming more evident every day. So, I’m going to keep dreaming.”
