Serve with Love Conference and Book

Based on the book Serve with Love
on Burgerville’s transformation to a mission-led company

Do you have a transformational mission statement? Is your mission statement lived out by your team? Are your stakeholders impacted by your mission?

Serve with Love Conference is an interactive discussion and training based on the book Serve with Love authored by Tom Mears to help individuals and organizations understand the power of a transformative mission statement through real-life case studies and hands-on activities.

By the end of the conference, attendees will be able to:

  • Develop a personal purpose statement so you can bring greater clarity to your life
  • Develop a new or enhance an existing transformational corporate mission statement to increase your profitability and impact
  • Recognize a real-life case study about the impact of a transformational mission statement in an organization so you can model it
  • Identify key stakeholders that your mission must serve to ensure that your mission execution is holistic and comprehensive
  • Develop action plans to ensure that your stakeholders who are served through your mission statement are properly integrated throughout your organization
