Organizational Renewal and Development)
invite you to


An evening with MARTIN RUTTE

The last twenty years in business have centred on information technology; the next twenty years will centre on spirituality and consciousness. As those of us involved with ACCORD ( and the Centre for Spirituality at Work ( already know, this has started to impact the very nature and meaning of work and business. In order to prepare for this future we need to begin developing the facility to have people's spirits and souls flourish while they are at work. How can organizations and leadership encourage the release and focus of this power from within and among their people? Come and find out how people and companies all over the world are beginning to engage in having the spiritual take its rightful public role at work. Find out about the changes to processes, mindsets and practices that are being used to encourage individuals to unfold and contribute their full spiritual potential at work. Hear what has already been achieved in those organizations that are pioneers in this field. Learn about the benefits and challenges to you, your colleagues your organization, your clients, and Society. And as this is accomplished, as spirituality becomes the basis of work, we are able to turn our attention to 'The Work of Humanity.'
