Walking The Talk - With Gary Grant
Sat 13 May 2017, 16:00 – 18:00 BST
FAITH AND SUCCESS IN BUSINESS
Church of the Living God invites you to come and hear one man’s inspirational story. A testimony of how simple principles of living brought bountiful returns in life.
Gary Grant is Chairman of The Entertainer Toy Shop, the UK's largest independent toy retailer, which he founded with his wife Catherine in 1981.
Gary Grant had just one O Level from school but is today one of Britains most succesful business men. He describes himself as a "charismatic evangelical" Christian. Hence, unusually for British retailers, The Entertainer retail locations do not open on Sundays. The business does not sell products deemed to have a connection to the occult, including Harry Potter and Halloween merchandise.
In line with biblical practice The Entertainer donates a tenth of its profits, and through its various charitable initiatives the business has raised millions for Charities including the Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital and street children in Guatemala.
The Entertainer now has over 130 stores in the UK and 6 international stores.
Gary will be speaking for about 45 minutes about his life experiences and how his Christian faith has had an impact on his life and his business.
This event would be suitable for Entrepreneurs and career oriented men and women.
