This year's Conference is themed, Living in the Trenches of Faith at Work – a return to the basics of integrating faith and work.
It is intended for all Christians, especially Catholics in the business and professional community, who wish to more deeply understand the role of faith in the workplace. The mission of the Conference is to invest in attendees' knowledge and understanding of how to integrate their lives and let their Christian faith guide their actions in the secular business world.
Description of Talks:
Jay Ferro, Keynote Speaker
From Grief to Grace: Five Lessons for a Catholic Life Well Lived
With supportive friends, loving family and a successful career, Jay Ferro thought he had it all. But the loss of his beautiful wife Priscilla to cancer presented challenges he never thought he'd experience.
Rescued from his struggle by God's never ending Grace, Jay re-evaluated his life, his priorities and his faith in order to be the father and man his three young sons needed and, more importantly, that God called him to be.
Learn some of the ways that Jay lives out and integrates his faith day-to-day on his journey to becoming a more obedient servant leader, father, and advocate for his Catholic faith.
Laurie Ann Stetzer, Guest Speaker
Are You Working Under Cover?
What is the importance of knowing who you are, confirming your values and spending time with God for confirmation and guidance? Once you have made these decisions how do you live an integrated life at work and build relationships with others without fear of them really knowing who you are and what you believe?
We will share and discuss the importance of encouraging, developing, defending and calming others in the workplace using the unique gifts each of us has been given.
Laura Lee Gentry, Guest Speaker
It's in your bones.
Your success (and that of your teams and organization) depends on something unexpected and certainly something they didn't teach you at B-school. Far beyond the latest business book buzz words, how you bring your Catholic values and beliefs to work every day will not only make your professional life more fulfilling but create distinctive and sustainable success.
From one of the top leaders in Organizational Performance and Executive Assessment, Laura Lee will share how she shows up at work with her Catholicism "in her bones" instead of on her sleeve.
Blending this highly personal view with some of the latest thinking on Talent Management and Organizational Effectiveness, Laura Lee will inspire new thinking and, likely, some breakthrough ideas on how you and your teams can flourish at work by integrating your faith into your career.
