Our 2016 Event Review

The 3rd annual event featured 4 businesses presenting to another sold out room of over 300 attendees and a Panel of Lions in a “Shark Tank” type experience with a twist.  The Kingdom-focused Panel asked these sharp business minds about their focus producing financial, social, environmental, and spiritual results in their chosen endeavors, known as the “quadruple bottom-line”.  Live audience voting selected Verdant Frontiers Verde Beef company as most likely to achieve both business success and spiritual impact.

New this year was a short Overview of What is Business As Mission (BAM) as well as expanded Exhibit Area, seating for our Keynote Luncheon, and a more intensive Professional Summit experience.

While the number of seats at the Main Event did not change, the venue and representation of attendees continued to grow.  58 cities from 23 states and 7 countries were in the crowd, up from 48 cities, 20 states, and 6 countries from 2015.
