How St. John PaulII showed me that Business is a Force for Good (CHC 2021)
I had the privilege to serve Saint John Paul II as a Swiss Guard for some time in my early 20's and he not only evangelized me but also equipped me for a career in entrepreneurship. After a blessed career in the High Tech Startup, I now hand on what I learned from John Paul at the Busch School of Business at The Catholic University of America. This talk will be a short "summary" of that wisdom.
