The third session of the Godfirst Business Forum will be held on Thursday the 21st of September (18h00 for 18h30). This session will feature the stories of three Godfirst business leaders across diverse industries. We will hear from:-
- Ryan Schnell - a Coverage Banker at Rand Merchant Bank (RMB) and has worked for leading banks around the world, now focussing on the non-bank financial institutions sector. Ryan will speak to the world of banking, where egos, greed and money often take centre stage and the challenges of approaching work life in a Godly manner.
- Michelle Caldeira of Blue Moon Corporate Communications, who will discuss her journey in Marketing & Communication, and her insights on effective employee engagement using creative communication methodologies.
They will share their business expertise, including key learnings from a Christian perspective within the business arena, and taking questions from the audience.
Thereafter, there will be facilitated group sessions where the intention is to gain insight on the needs of those business leaders present, and how best we can serve you.
In the coming sessions, we will be featuring other business leaders within the church, so that you gain a sense of who is involved in which industry, or has a specific interest / expertise, in case you ever wish to be in touch with them for insight or advice.
Let’s connect, and leverage the great talent which we have in Godfirst to serve one another

Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also. The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land. .. Psalm 95: 1-6
