We are thrilled to host the fifth annual gathering of top Christian leaders at Business for the Common Good 2022, Friday, February 25. After a more subdued event in 2021 due to COVID restrictions, it’s exciting to imagine how God will move through the 400+ guests who gather at the Grand Hyatt downtown and the livestream audience nationwide.
We know that as leaders, you need a fresh vision for your role, clarity to execute effectively, and practical tools to navigate the changing world of work. But what if principles that have guided leaders for millennia could speak to the marketplace today?
This year’s event will bring biblical wisdom to the challenges leaders face as we emerge from the pandemic. Questions like:
- How can organizations pursue a broader bottom line that helps key stakeholders thrive, in addition to achieving profitability?
- How does the gospel drive the way we care for our employees, especially when work is performed in remote locations?
- What does it look like for business leaders to heal divisions in the workplace? And how do leaders navigate the pressure to address controversial issues that risk alienating key constituencies?
- What practices can restore our spiritual and emotional resilience as we emerge from an exhausting season?
Have you seen the lineup of speakers? I can’t wait to learn from Christian executives, thought leaders, and entrepreneurs, whose experience invites us to think more deeply about our influence and callings. You’ll hear from:
- JoAnn Fleet, executive director of the Center for Faithful Business
- Robin John, Founder and CEO of Eventide Asset Management
- Alison Long Pettine, Managing Partner of Ridge Group Investments
- Pat Riley, CEO of the Global Accelerator Network (GAN)
- Jill Going, Chief People Officer at Point B Consulting
- Peter Greer, President and CEO of Hope International
- Anna Nussbaum Keating, author and owner of Keating Woodworks
- And many more
But what the event webpage can’t capture is the relational power of gathering so many Christian influencers in the same room. This year we’re building “talk back sessions” into the schedule to allow you to interact with speakers and other attendees in less structured settings where you can pose the questions you’ve been dying to ask. And the networking that happens between sessions is worth the price of admission. At BCG, you may reconnect with a colleague you worked with 20 years ago, start a conversation that leads to your next big deal, or finally meet a leader you’ve been chasing on LinkedIn. We love seeing the network of leaders committed to serving God and loving others through their work grow at this event.
“The biggest gift I received from BCG was hope. The world of business has not been surrendered to the enemy. God is at work; he is making it new. To see so many leaders from Denver in agreement with all this planted seeds of hope in my heart.”–2020 Guest at Business for the Common Good
