A conference being held in Aberdeen next month is set to encourage and equip local Christians to flourish in their faith in the workplace.

The inaugural ‘Thrive’ event will take place at the city’s DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Aberdeen Treetops on the evening of Friday, March 15, and throughout the day of Saturday, March 16.

The aim of the conference is to inspire people of the Christian faith to prosper in their working environment and make a positive impact on themselves, their colleagues and the wider city of Aberdeen.

A number of speakers have been lined up to deliver sessions, including the director of Solas Centre for Public Christianity, Andy Bannister, the chair of Mission Scotland, Sarah-Jane Biggart, pastor of Aberdeen’s King’s Community Church, Iain Duthie, and Ken Janke; the director of programmes and partnership for Global Advance, based in Texas, USA.

Topics to be covered throughout the event include public leadership in the corporate world, city transformation and diversity and inclusion.

Jim Grimmer, the managing trustee of organisers The Business Connection, commented: “We’re excited for our first Thrive conference, which will see people from across theNorth-east come together for inspiring teaching, great music and honest conversations; all with the aim of making us more purposeful and influential in the workplace.

“We have secured high calibre speakers who all have vast experience in helping people to prosper in their work and so we’ve no doubt that attendees will be encouraged and built up to make a real difference in their own unique circles and spheres.”
