Do you sometimes feel as if you have lost the passion and joy for work? How do you find your true vocation in life?
These are some of the questions that an upcoming conference hopes to address.
The Christ@Work 2015 Conference, organised by the Catholic Business Network (CBN), will be held at the Catholic Junior College Performing Arts Centre on Nov 28.
This event, the fifth such conference organised since 2005, will have the theme, Your Pursuit of Happiness at Work.
According to the organisers, the event seeks to equip working adults with the skills and inspiration to help them answer Christ’s call at the workplace, and to find true happiness.
The keynote speaker is Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers, an evangelist from the US whose areas of expertise include workplace ministry and family life.
Mr Philip Ng, CEO of Far East Organisation, together with Mr Willie Cheng, who sits on several Catholic Church boards, will discuss the businessman’s journey and attitude towards wealth, Christian ethics and personal happiness.
Ms Lydia Lim, associate opinion editor of The Straits Times, will speak on the issue of personal vocation in the workplace.
Verbum Dei Sr Monika will give a guided reflection titled Beatitudes In The Workplace.
Other speakers include Mr Kevin Ho, chief commercial officer of the Swiss-based Ball Watch Company; Ms Natasha Kwan, managing director of T-Systems South Asia; Mr Bernard Lim, a TV and radio personality; and Pastor Barney Lau of Covenant Evangelical Free Church.
A panel discussion titled It All Begins With Me will look at challenges posed when trying to achieve a balance between one’s passions and one’s relationship with God.
