This Funzing Experience:

Come meet entrepeneur Jonathan Straight, who will tell a series of fascinating tales about the richest biblical characters in history.

Looking at how they made their money in the first place and examining a number of relevant behavioural traits particularly relevant to the world of business.

This talk looks as some of the wealthiest people in all of history. Even by modern standards, some of the characters in the Bible had huge amounts of money and other assets. For example, King Solomon was worth somewhere between £100 billion and £2 trillion.

How did these people get their money and what can we learn from their examples, both positive and negative?

Starting with the Biblical text and then augmenting this with detail from rare commentaries and other sources, the story comes to life in a way that will probably not have been heard before. Stunning details emerge. How was Joseph influenced by a golden hello of more than £1billion and how did he keep his head as the second richest man on the planet? What were the 10 Commandments made from and how much were they worth?

The answers to these questions and more are given along with some sound advice which has not lost its value through the mists of time.

This talk will be of interest to anyone thinking of starting a business or with a business of any size from start up to major corporate.

Landor Space

70 Landor Road, London, SW9 9PH

Doors open at 7pm with the talk to begin at 7.30pm sharp.
