Dr. Kim Tan Announced as Speaker at the ELO Forum Vancouver 2024

We are pleased to announce that Dato Dr. Kim Tan, based in London, UK, will be a speaker at this year’s ELO Forum Vancouver.

The ELO Forums are one-day events that bring Christians in business together to learn from a great roster of expert presenters, connect with like-minded individuals and organizations, and grow in their faith. Peers of kindred spirit connect. Attendees get outside of their usual circles and make new contacts. Relationships are created, renewed, and strengthened. Attendees and speakers come together from around the globe. There is plenty of information and inspiration but most importantly, the benefits last throughout the year and beyond.

We have organized over 70 events since 2005 and host our ELO Forums annually in Winnipeg, Vancouver, and Toronto, to reach business leaders from all areas of Canada and across the globe.

Some testimonials from our Vancouver 2023 Forum attendees include:

“What a great opportunity to connect with Christian leaders! The ELO Forum was truly inspiring and insightful. The experience is invaluable for anyone seeking entrepreneurial wisdom and guidance in the Christian community!" 

"ELO always features diverse and knowledgeable speakers who do an excellent job of integrating business, and leadership with a unique vision for God's kingdom."

"Great lineup of speakers - very inspiring. Very well organized - keep it up!"
