The Maryland Christian Businessmen’s Connection (“CBMC”) Metro South held a breakfast outreach meeting at Eggcellence restaurant on Thursday, September 16, 2919. The speaker for the event was Dave Phillips, Senior Customer Service executive with Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc., the world’s leading scientific provider with more than $10 billion in annual revenues. Dave related some of his extensive travels throughout the world servicing the company’s clients. Dave also told the audience about his personal travels and his secrets to success in life—both in the business world and in his own personal life. Through frequent moves and corporate changes, Dave has experienced a persistent pursuit of friendship. He has seen this pursuit through corporate restructuring, sales and acquisitions. His own company changed hands three times, and experience shows that upper management usually does not last for more than a year after a major change. Dave shared the impact of corporate restructuring and how this affected his personal faith journey. He ended his talk with a personal testimony of his Christian faith and invited others to receive Christ as their personal Savior.
