Hosted Tim Costello AO: Graceful Business – Christians Making an Ethical Impact

| Colin Lee

🌟 Graceful Business – Christians Making an Ethical Impact. 🌟

Incredibly privileged to share the stage, interview, be encouraged, enlightened and empowered by Tim Costello, Former Chief Executive of World Vision Australia. As CEO Tim led an organisation of about 560 staff, with an annual income of about $350 million, and 400,000 children overseas sponsored by Australians. Tim was named Victoria’s Australian of the Year, made an Officer of the Order of Australia (AO); and named as one of Australia’s 100 National Living Treasures.

Loved his message. Your calling is when you bliss intersects with the worlds needs. Make your CALLING your CAREER! “Door to happiness turns outwards”. Be encouraged that GOD MADE ME.

Surrounded by over 112 like-minded business owners, it was a privilege to share the space with Christian business owners and entrepreneurs, professionals, politicians, executives and those from church and charities and causes. We connected, we communicated and we collaborated! We MAXXED OUT capacity.

Huge thanks to Alan Lucas, Janice Lucas Peter Grieve Linda Grieve Ben Janssen, Joseph Bobadilla Jing Liu Mark Robinson Rebekah Strachan The Henry Wong Team Henry Wong and the entire CBN team for organizing such a wonderful event.

So glad and grateful to be joined by my wife Bec and my little girl Ava! Love doing life with my family!

Members of CBN are encouraged to operate their Businesses on Biblical Principles with Integrity, Honesty and Generosity and become influential members of their Community and Region as Ambassadors for Christ.

It was fantastic to catch up with friends and even better to connect those who hadn’t met before. There’s nothing quite like bringing people together, weaving new connections, and watching potential unfold. 🤝💫

We have also nominated our Charity to support this year! Emmanuel City Mission. ECM serves up 1000 hot meals, 150 shower and toiletry packs, 100 loads of washing and unlimited conversations with people who care. That’s an average week at Emmanuel City Mission, a daytime sanctuary for the homeless and vulnerable, in the heart of Brisbane. Thank you Roby Curtis and Tim Noonan for your presence!

Thank you to our sponsors Vision Christian Radio and Ord Minnett and to our supporters Vinny Lo from Oscar Hunt and Kerry Johnson from Joy By Nature for your generosity!
Feeling grateful for such a vibrant community and for opportunities like this to grow, learn, and connect. Here’s to many more! 🥂
