Civic & Business Leadership Event - UK

Added 21 October 2011 View full list    Print version    
Stoke-on-Trent has long been one of England's most financially deprived areas, with relatively high unemployment and a low level of civic pride.

In an effort to lift public confidence and encourage bold innovation to reshape the city's future, 2020Plus, the London-based think tank, combined with Avodah Enterprises Ltd and Breathe City Church to host the recent 2020Plus Civic and Business Leadership Event.

The midweek breakfast sessions brought together leaders from both business and civic sectors of the community, for networking and to hear two leadership presentations by Mal Fletcher, the chairman of 2020Plus and director of Next Wave International.

The sessions focused on building a culture of confidence and enlisting the support and creativity of the Millennial generation. The material was very well received and interest is high in a planned follow-on event which is scheduled for March 8, 2012.

Introducing the sessions, host James Galloway - leader of Avodah and pastor of Breathe City Church - explained that the 2020Plus concept is being hosted in various cities across the UK over the next two years.

During his brief visit to Stoke, a city he has visited a number of times before, Mal was interviewed by BBC Radio and the Sentinel, the major regional newspaper.

Your Feedback
I think yours was the best and most succinct critique I've yet read on 'The Da Vinci Code'. As you say, we can still use it as a platform for presenting the real gospel.
