Created to Flourish: Wellbeing at Work
20 to 22 March 2020 – Westminster College, Cambridge
Everyone who comes will be a full participant. Some participants will give short talks or interviews designed to resource and engage.
Amongst those invited to contribute from the front are the following inspirational leaders:
Andrew Baughen, previously a management consultant and a London vicar, will share findings from his research on soul-full enterprises.
Andrew serves as Programme Director of The School of Faith, which runs TED Talk style events, and as a Visiting Fellow at the Cass Business School.
Alan Colley, a senior manager for global enterprise with the communications giant Cisco, will explore how risk and discomfort can challenge our constraints, expand our horizons, develop our skills, and build courage and resilience for all that life throws at us.
Alan has experienced many potential burn-out triggers in his work, family life, and in his passion for exercise and adventure. Yet as those who follow his leadership training testify, his fire is burning hotter than ever.
Andy Flannagan, a Luton-based Irish singer-songwriter and CEO of Christian in Politics, will lead our gathered worship.
Formerly a practising doctor, Andy has risen to become one of the UK?s most creative and prophetic singer-songwriters and social activists. His work embodies whole-life worship.
Karen Kircher, CEO of Leading Leaders, is on a mission to change the face of leadership through training healthy, effective influencers in the business world.
Her corporate career includes 30 years’ experience as a leadership and organisational development coach. An expert in emotional intelligence, she is the author of Called to Influence and is launching a related training series.
Peter Lupson, a TV presenter and author, will provide inspiring examples of wellbeing at work from his study of Christian entrepreneurs in British history.
Peter’s highly acclaimed book Thank God for Football! told the amazing story of the church origins of famous English football clubs. His recent book In God’s Company, tells the equally amazing story of seven Christian giants of business who founded world-renowned companies.
Marjory Mair, the founder-director of Marjory Mair & Associates, will facilitate a Wellbeing at Work Workshop.
Her workshop will focus on developing emotional intelligence to manage workplace relationships, deal with difficult situations, build resilience and stimulate mental health and wellness.
Michelle Wilkins, founder and CEO of Cinnamon Letters, will speak about the need for balance between caring for others in the workplace and looking after yourself.
Passionate about business and leadership issues, Michelle uses integrity and excellence to help clients build their sphere of influence.
Canon Sue Wyatt
Canon Sue Wyatt, a senior leader in the Ely Diocese and a former Cambridge vicar, will discuss the findings of her research spanning 20 years on wellbeing amongst leaders in Christian ministry.
Married to David, a senior business executive who spoke at last year’s retreat, Sue is passionate about Church members understanding the pressures their leaders are under, and about those leaders getting the support they need to flourish.
This was a truly beautiful event in the most profound sense. Thank you for organising it with such care and skill. I found it a very worthwhile experience – it has enriched my working practice and my daily worship.2019 retreat participant
