News Release: Who is ELO?


At the core, ELO is an expanding web of like-minded people who believe in the importance of the call for Christian marketplace and entrepreneurial leaders to be more effective difference-makers. As a result, a wide range of individuals support ELO from all around the world.

This support comes from the ground up in many forms. It includes financial support of event sponsors, those contributing relational capital that opens doors to the right connections, and the valuable time of speakers at our forums, webinars and other events.

We have been humbled that over the years many high-profile business leaders have come to present at our events. In Oxford, we have had amazing, high-demand instructors that prioritize our programme in their schedules so that they may come speak to our group. We have had top Hollywood executives do day trips to fly in to some of our Forums.

All of these supporters want to be part of the community. We have been beneficiaries of a tremendous amount of good will.

So, who is ELO? It includes full-time staff, advisors, collaborators, table hosts, sponsors, speakers, Oxford faculty, collaborators, and suppliers. ELO has always been a collaborative undertaking—the momentum comes from broad-based community support.

It doesn’t take a village—it takes Gideon’s Army! So, here is a partial list of supporters that make ELO happen (and it keeps growing).
