WHAT NOW FOR WORKPLACE CENTRE: Imagining What Comes Next
Thursday, 20 October 2016 from 12:15 PM to 1:30 PM (PDT)
WHAT NOW FOR WORKPLACE CENTRE:
with Brian Fraser, PhD, Lead Provocateur of Jazzthink; member of the Douglas College Faculty; and Minister at Brentwood Presbyterian Church
Imagining What Comes Next
We know, we know! We just seem to keep talking about this. But we value the power of conversations to generate a practical vision for the future. This session is ‘where the rubber hits the road,’ to use a hackneyed phrase. We want to come up with two or three concrete things to do that will re-energize the work of the Workplace Centre for Spiritual and Ethical Development. Come and be part of the conversation. It will be more inspiring and more productive with your input.
The event structure has been altered slightly so that attendance is free for everyone but there is no catering. Bring your own lunch.
