LEADERSHIP

 

Entrepreneurial Leaders Conference Toronto

Wednesday, November 15, 2017

Christian entrepreneurial leaders have the potential to positively impact the marketplace, churches and communities on a global basis. Innovation is at the heart of entrepreneurship: doing something new, different and creative. An entrepreneur can innovate and turn an idea into action. Entrepreneurs are leaders—they are people of influence. They can influence all they touch, in all dimensions of life. A Christian value system provides a foundation and focus for entrepreneurial initiative. You either are an entrepreneurial leader or can become one—you can be creative, action-oriented and expand your sphere of influence. How do you do so? That’s what the Entrepreneurial Leader Conference is about.

Held at the Toronto Airport Marriott Hotel, 901 Dixon Road, Toronto. More info and tickets at:
