Event Description

Profit or Prophet?  What Have You Been Called To?  Is this a choice?  Are these words mutually exclusive?  Do you have to choose one over the other?

Our special guest speaker for December is Griff Lindell, the new Dean of Corban University's School of Business. 
will explore the role that attitude plays in our understanding of those two concepts – an attitude driving the Christian business person to understand that the blessing of the Lord makes you rich, and He adds no sorrow with it because working harder does not increase it.

Lindell brings extensive experience as a teacher, author and adjunct professor as well as many years of business success.  Lindell has worked in corporate America at Eastman Kodak, where he was part of the product launch team that changed how industry did high-speed motion analysis.  As a “serial entrepreneur” he started or helped grow several small businesses and from 1990 to 2001 he was a partner with DRB Partners, Inc., a Silicon Valley advertising and PR agency. Before moving to Oregon in 2005, he co-founded an internet-based software development company, cPower, Inc., that provided a suite of interactive tools to help technology companies launch products.
His senior-level business and leadership experience has led to several published books and he continues to write and blog on leadership and business.  He is a motivational speaker, consultant and business/life coach using his unique principles of servant-leadership.  His most recent book, “Struggling with Your Business? 10 Questions to Consider Before Investing Another Dime,” is available in bookstores and online.  Lindell lives in Woodburn with his wife, Margaret Ann. He continues to serve the community as a SCORE volunteer and as a member of several non-profit boards.
