The Global Competitiveness Forum (GCF), the only event of its kind, is an annual meeting of global business leaders, international political leaders, and selected intellectuals and journalists brought together to create a dialogue with respect to the positive impact organizational and national competitiveness can have on local, regional and global economic, and social development. It was founded in 2006 by the Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority (SAGIA) and is held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, under the patronage of HM King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques.
Friedman has lectured at more than 600 colleges and 100 professional groups in 50 U.S. states, 9 Canadian provinces, and 16 other countries. He has appeared on hundreds of radio and television programs including Coast to Coast and Larry King Live. The physicist has authored and co-authored numerous books and in 2002 was presented a Lifetime Achievement Award in Leeds, England, by UFO Magazine of the UK. His latest book, Science Was Wrong, co-authored with Kathleen Marden,, was released in July 2010.
