Many ministries need more business disciplines in their operations to move them towards growth and greater impact. You have those business disciplines. Your God-given expertise and experiences have prepared you to help our presenting ministries in significant ways. The mission of The Barnabas Group Chicago is to connect marketplace leaders to ministries needing particular business discipline support.
On Wednesday, June 13th, we will host our next quarterly meeting. Please join us at the Lyric Opera, from 7:30-10:30 am (note: breakfast will be served at 7:30 and the program will begin at 8:00).
We'll enjoy a light breakfast and networking from 7:30-8:00, followed by our keynote and ministry presentations until 10:30. Our speaker is Emily Harburg, PhD at Northwestern in Technology and Behavior.
We'll hear a talk from Emily Harburg, Director of Curriculum and Program Development, Emily is a fifth-year Ph.D. student in the technology and social behavior program at Northwestern University. Emily is interested in building online tools to improve motivation, collaboration, and self-efficacy. She received her B.S. in Social Anthropology and Psychology from Harvard University. Prior to doctoral studies, Emily worked for Walt Disney Imagineering in the Disney Research behavioral sciences team. She is also a cofounder of Youth Lead the Change, a global youth leadership organization that empowers youth to reach their full potential as leaders.
We've asked Emily to speak with us about what she's learned about people and organizations along her journey from Harvard to Disney, through startups, non-profits, and now in her doctoral studies at Northwestern. She's got great insight, you won't want to miss it!
Also, please take a moment to think of who you can invite to attend with you. Helping our community grow in this way is one of the greatest things you can do to further our mission.
