This year, Leadercast/CBCHR 2017 presents Powered by Purpose. The Christian Business Coalition of Hampton Roads in partnership with the Hampton Roads Chamber is thrilled to host this annual event for a second year. Andy Stanley and Jess Eckstorm are just two of the dynamic speakers presenting this year.
We are thrilled to see Pastor Andy Stanley returning to present again this year!
Communicator, author, and pastor Andy Stanley founded Atlanta-based North Point Ministries (NPM) in 1995. Today, NPM is comprised of six churches in the Atlanta area, serving more than 60,000 people weekly, as well as a network of 30 churches around the globe. As host of NBC’s Your Move with Andy Stanley, which reached over 36 million viewers in less than two years on the air, and author of 20-plus books, including Ask It, How to Be Rich, Deep & Wide, Visioneering, and Next Generation Leader, he is considered one of the most influential living pastors in America. Andy and his wife, Sandra, have three grown children and live near Atlanta.
Leadership is all about taking people on a journey. The challenge is that most of the time, we are asking people to follow us to places we ourselves have never been. - Andy Stanley
In addition, you will hear from one of the youngest and the most inspiring leaders today, Jess Eckstorm.
Jess Eckstorm is the 25-year-old founder and CEO of Headbands of Hope, a company she started as a college junior in 2012. For every headband sold, a headband is given to a child with cancer. The company has been featured on the TODAY show, Vanity Fair, Seventeen, Good Morning America, and more. But more importantly, they have donated headbands to every children’s hospital in the United States.
Jess is also a speaker, author, and writer for Entrepreneur and The Huffington Post. She believes age should never stop anyone from going after their dreams and becoming leaders in their communities. By sharing her experiences, Jess inspires listeners to crush stereotypes, identify their purpose, and create their own definition of success.
Life’s most defining moment is discovering what you want and doing something about it. – Jess Eckstorm

Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them. – John Maxwell
We’ve all been there, going through the motions of another day at the office or struggling to get a new business off the ground. Then we hear about the company across town that’s hitting it out of the park and enjoying widespread success. And we think to ourselves: “What do they have that we don’t?” The answer - purpose.
Purpose is what defines us, drives us, and empowers us. Powered by purpose, any individual within a leadership role can turn his/her business into a highly energized, highly profitable venture that can excite and fulfill the corporate CEO or the small-town entrepreneur.
That’s why this year, Leadercast/CBCHR 2017 presents Powered by Purpose. The Christian Business Coalition of Hampton Roads in partnership with the Hampton Roads Chamber is thrilled to host this annual event for a second year. You don’t want to miss it!
