Values. Every business claims to have them, but do they actually make a difference to the way we work?
As Christians in business, are our values different from others’? Should they be?
Should being a values-based business be an integral part of workplace discipleship, or is it just the latest business gimmick?
Join LICC and Salt, the Christian Aid Business Network, for an evening discussing these questions. We will hear from speakers including Revd Edward Carter, Canon Theologian at Chelmsford Cathedral, and Simon Hickman, Chief Executive of Access Insurance, who will help us to consider the biblical root of our values, and how they can and should work themselves out in our businesses.
Edward Carter is an ordained minister in the Church of England, currently the Canon Theologian at Chelmsford Cathedral. He also serves as Chair of the ecumenical Church Investors Group, which represents some £17bn of church investments and promotes an ethical approach. Before being ordained Edward ran his own business and worked in the small company sector.
Simon is the CEO of Access Insurance Services, a firm of Chartered Insurance Brokers who specialise in advising charities, churches and non-profit organisations, among others. As a Christian, Simon is committed to running his business on social enterprise and ethical principles. He and his team are working towards a goal of donating £500,000 annually to charitable causes by 2025. Simon is involved with his local church, enjoys spending time with his family, hill walking and the occasional game of squash.
