Faith in Business Monthly

Faith in Business Monthly (FiBM) is a mixture of talks and interviews with Christian business leaders, expert coaches and practical theologians. It equips business people to navigate small, medium and large enterprises through an uncertain business environment from a uniquely Christian perspective. 

FiBM takes place on the first Thursday of every month at 12.30 pm. Participants join a live Zoom meeting, and after listening to a talk or interview, they have the opportunity to ask questions verbally or through a chat channel, followed by breakout rooms where they discuss the meeting's topic with fellow participants. Each set of talks and interviews is moderated by our Director, Peter Heslam, or one of the Faith in Business team.

Meaning and purpose can protect people from burnout. But they can also cause it – because they can induce a ‘hero’ complex (trying to rescue situations).
