About the Programme


The Entrepreneurial Leaders Programme (ELP) is held every summer at the University of Oxford, UK. It is a week long learning experience for senior executives, business leaders, and entrepreneurs from around the globe. Expert guest presenters teach throughout the week. Mealtimes are spent connecting and networking with the great cohort of peers that attend. Tours are taken together to view the sites that Oxford has to offer. You don't want to miss out on this incredible opportunity to travel, learn more about your calling, and grow in your faith! 





"Imagine: a full week of classes taught by some of the finest thinkers and teachers on this planet in the most prestigious university in the world, Oxford University, all while learning and interacting with fellow Christian leaders." - Dr. Peter Legge, O.B.C., CSP, CPAE, HoF

“I would definitely recommend the ELP at Oxford to business leaders who are interested in a better understanding of how God is working in them in their workplace. It is inspiring to closely connect with such a group of high-level Christian entrepreneurs.” - Glenn Hofland, President, John G. Hofland Ltd.

"ELO Oxford program provides an opportunity to reflect deeply on how your vocation, family and faith fit together. Having world-class instruction and unique experiences are just the icing on the cake. Great practical takeaways for improving your personal impact. Rekindled a love of learning.” - Justin Currie, CPA, Principal, Legacy Business Advisory Services
