We believe Christian theology is a valuable resource for any boardroom

Thanks to the organisational principles of the earliest Christians, their movement is now global. Christian women and men inhabit every social class and partake in every form of government and economy. Christians have presided over the most corrupt power structures on earth and have led the most successful reforms against injustice history has ever known. 

In the age of #MeToo, climate chaos, Trump and Brexit, we see traditional power structures convulsing and collapsing while new forms rise to fill the void. Organisations grow unwieldy, while small ones struggle for survival in the shifting environment. We have seen these stories before.

Communication is instant. Transparency is key. Servant-leadership works, command and control does not. Domination is out. Goodness is in. Tent Making Business is a weekend to help you and your business negotiate these currents to create healthy, successful organisations built on relationship, freedom and love.

Spend Friday night and Saturday in a beautiful countryside location on the outskirts of Manchester.
