What they said about ACBC 2011:

"The Atlanta Catholic Business Leader's Conference is a gift for Catholic's seeking to learn from each other on how to integrate faith, family and work. Spending the day with great speakers, engaging table discussions and getting to network with over 200 other Catholic business people leaves me renewed, refocused and reenergized." Terry Trout VP of Customer Care, Cbeyond "I had no idea there were this many men and women in my profession community who love their faith and embrace the Magisterium of the Church. I came away with a ton of new contacts of people that share my beliefs and passion for the faith, plus with the table discussions throughout the day I had the opportunity to really get to know them at a personal level. Great contacts from great companies coupled with a personal relationship that helps me as a Catholic, and benefits my career." Vince Koehler Senior Consultant, SBI "Each year this Conference continues to grow in reputation and attendance. The 2011 Atlanta Catholic Business Conference was a short course in Developing Business Spirituality 101. The conference speakers focused their remarks on how putting faith and spirituality into action each day is not mutually exclusive of, but actually complements professional development in the business world of Atlanta and beyond. "As Jesus reminds us in the parable of the talents (Mt 25: 1430) much is expected to those who have been given much. We must also remember to use our professional skills and gifts to bring glory to God through worship of Him and service to others." Joseph J. Krygiel Chief Executive Officer, Catholic Charities
