WORLD CONGRESS 2018

Business as a Noble Vocation

22nd to 24th of November 2018

Universidade Católica Portuguesa, Lisbon, Portugal

BUSINESS SERVING THE COMMON GOOD FOR THE BETTERMENT OF SOCIETY

“Business is a vocation, and a noble vocation, provided that those engaged in it see themselves challenged by a greater meaning in life; this will enable them truly to serve the common good by striving to increase the goods of this world and to make them more accessible to all.”

Pope FrancisEvangelli Gaudium

INTRODUCTION

Business leaders who participate in this congress are expected to gain insightful reflections and ideas through dissertations, dialogues and practical examples of peers, Christian Churches representatives, renowned speakers and panelists from the academia aiming to encourage and help them in their quest for the transformation of business into a noble vocation…a transformation that needs to start with their own personal change.
