Oxford Next Meeting


Dear Visitor

Oxford Breakfast in our New Venue

Oxford Breakfast – Wednesday 8th November 2017

Topic –  “Is your business on the rocks or sinking sand?”

This month please join us hear our speaker Tim Lazenby, host of the Stow CBL on the topic of “Is your business on the rocks or sinking sand?” Tim will discuss if praying in work and for a solid Christian business is sufficient in itself or whether business leaders need to consider expert support with strategy, compliance, HR and IT. With the major changes impacting businesses in the coming years what do we need to consider to stay within the law, good practice in information management and to thrive through Brexit and GDPR.

Tim has over 30 years business experience in Corporate IT, Charity IT and Operations and has run an IT consultancy covering Cyber Security, Proactive Managed Services and Compliance since 2007.



Fruit juice and tea / coffee will be available on arrival when you sign up please make your choice from a menu of 4 options for breakfast.

Option 1 – Eggs Benedict – Poached egg on a toasted muffin with bacon and hollandaise sauce

Option 2 – Eggs Fungi – Poached eggs on a toasted muffin with Portobello mushroom and hollandaise sauce

Option 3 – Bacon Brioche – Smoked bacon in a toasted brioche bun

Option 4 – The English – Bacon, sausage, eggs, grilled tomato, Portobello mushroom and toast

Please join us on Wednesday 8th November, invite a friend and be inspired to live out your faith in your business and take it to the next level.

Yours – David

Support Groups are small groups of CBL Members who meet together on a regular basis for more in depth study and discussion. Support Groups provide a confidential place to discuss business issues that impact on you. There are currently two types of groups running:
Business Owners:  for members of CBL owning their own business.  Group size is typically 6-8 to allow for the level of in-depth focus on each member’s business

Senior Managers:  or members of CBL employed in senior management or executive roles within corporate, professional and non-profit/NGO environments

We are currently looking to establish some new groups in the Oxford area, so please check out our website for more information and email me if you would be interested in joining a group.
