A conference on faith and business for the north of England.
Christians in business often feel unsupported at church and isolated at work. Work in business is part of God’s purpose for the world he created, loves and is restoring; yet business, like all of life, has been corrupted, so there are tough challenges.
Our third Faith in Business conference asks what the commands of Jesus - to love God and neighbour - mean in competitive business.
In the wake of the Carillion collapse, described by MPs as resulting from recklessness, hubris and greed, our top speakers and business people will share their experiences and invite your critical participation.
There will be time to question, reflect, and discuss, to browse stalls, and to network over a good lunch and refreshments.
Rebecca and Jonathan Cain: Organisational development consultant and coach; and engineering director turned priest.
John Kirkby: Christians Against Poverty founder and reformed business owner.
Stewart Davies: Business leader with over fifteen years’ MD / CEO experience.
June Dennis: Dean of Staffordshire Business School.
Saturday 13th October 2018, 9.30 for 10am - 4pm.
