ELO Forums Introduction

Whether Vancouver, Toronto, Hong Kong, Calgary, or Singapore, the ELO Forums are the single most important annual events for Christian marketplace and entrepreneurial leaders in their respective cities.

Peers of kindred spirit connect. Attendees get outside of their usual circles and make new contacts. Relationships are started, renewed, and strengthened. Attendees and speakers come from around the globe. There is plenty of information and inspiration, but most importantly, the benefits last throughout the year and beyond.  Thousands of people have attended the ELO Forums over the years. 

The ELO Forums are unique and based on four pillars:

COMMUNITY– It’s not a crowd, it’s about creating a community of like-minded people who build relationships.

ENGAGE – Attendees are part of an ongoing conversation through chatting with participants and interacting with presenters.

EXPERT – ELO is the leader in serving Christian marketplace and entrepreneurial leaders through consulting, training, research, writing, and speaking.

LEARN – It’s not listening to speakers but rather leadership training, reflected in a carefully curated learning program.


The ELO Forums have received many enthusiastic endorsements.  Here is a sampling:

“This is the only conference around that caters to Christians in the business world, helping them to exercise their God-given gifts and to know that they are really worshipping and glorifying God Monday to Saturday, in their marketplace mission field.  It’s an excellent opportunity to learn, share and network.”

- Mike Reinders, President, Maple Reinders Constructors, Mississauga, ON

“Awesome event with an amazing amount of quality workplace entrepreneurs who are impacting our world in and through the workplace. There was something for everyone and a clear challenge to us all to make a purposeful contribution to what God is already doing in our World and not to think small. Next year it is a must attend for all.”

- Ian McSporran, The McSporran Team - Keller Williams Edge Realty, Brokerage, Burlington

“This was an outstanding conference!  The highlight for me was the humility and transparency of an outstanding panel of speakers.  There were excellent takeaways from each one.  I thought that every detail was well done!”

David Marshall, CEO, Marshall Zehr, Kitchener-Waterloo, ON

“The ELO conferences have preeminent speakers addressing Christian business and philanthropy.  Attendees want value for their time and money, and these conferences provide the most value.  If you can only attend one conference per year, this is the conference you should attend.”

- Gary Hoftyzer, Lawyer, Hoftyzer Law, Oakville, ON

“Wow, what an event...you're doing in bringing together a dynamic group of speakers and Christian Entrepreneurial thinkers is highly refreshing and encouraging.  Great real-life stories and impactful experiences being shared.  Our group spanned 3 generations, a real buzz of conversation on the ride home. Congratulations, excited about next year.”

- Cal Bosveld, Founder/President, ServeMedia, Hamilton, ON
