We know that not everyone has a local FaithTech community in their city so this is an opportunity to get plugged into our online MENA community and learn more about how our local ones function.
Come meet, learn, and build with other like minded Christians in tech as we steward our skills for the glory of God together!
This month, we’ll hear from Paul Burns on …
In the fast-paced and ever-changing world of Big Tech, expressing Christian ideals while leading takes on new meaning. Navigating this dynamic sector requires not only an in-depth understanding of technology and market trends but also a firm commitment to one’s Christian faith. Leaders in Big Tech confront difficult decisions, ethical dilemmas, and the need to foster a workplace that reflects their Christian views. This rare combination of leadership demands a strategic approach based on Christian principles, as well as the capacity to motivate and drive teams toward a harmonious fusion of faith and technology.
This talk will help inspire us to examine the important characteristics and methods required for successful leadership in this competitive space while remaining faithful to your Christian values.
Join us on October 12th!
