    A Worthy Risk

    A Worthy Risk

    Meet Susan Harris, BBT’s newest board member! As a risk management executive at Edward Jones, Susan sees only upsides in bringing her faith to the workplace. In this podcast episode, Susan shares how her professional journey reflects her passion for integrating (not balancing) faith and work. Living her faith at work involves ethical decision making, leading with integrity, and modeling compassion for others as Christ did. These passions explain how a serendipitous encounter with Lori Drury, BBT’s Executive Director, led Susan to an easy and enthusiastic “yes” to help champion BBT's mission. In her own words, joining forces with BBT is simply a “win-win” for God’s Kingdom.

    Connecting Souls

    In a world that sometimes feels disconnected, BBT board member Kim Plank is on a mission to make connections! Kim’s vast, economic development career spans the corporate, civic, entrepreneurial, and philanthropic industries. Yet there is a common thread that weaves throughout her professional tapestry: a deep love for people, a desire to bridge economic gaps, and a willingness to spark courageous conversations in order to create sustainability in the communities that she serves. Kim’s experiences have taught her the power of empathy, community engagement, and the eternal impact leaders can make beyond the balance sheet. Her own faith in God is integral to it all.

    Faith-Fueled Leadership

    Faith-Fueled Leadership

    What happens when faith and the business world intersect? C-Suite for Christ founder Paul Neuberger believes the workplace is the greatest ministry field on earth. He is passionate, unashamed, and unapologetic about his mission to “Cover the World in Christ”. Paul especially understands the unique challenges faced by senior-level executives in embracing this truth. Discover how C-Suite chapters across the world serve as “filling stations” for executives who desire to make a non-negotiable commitment to the Gospel, lead by Christian values, and shape their organization's culture boldly and authentically through faith.

    ABOUT PAUL:

    Paul M. Neuberger began his career as a keynote speaker by nearly killing himself. Seriously.
    Then again, there’s nothing conventional about Paul, a man who relishes the concept of punching conventional wisdom in the face. His motto is “Making the impossible, possible.” Getting a clearer picture?
    A devout Christian, Paul didn’t buy the (supposedly) tried-and-true notion of “keep religion and business separate.” He founded C Suite for Christ, a faith-based fellowship for professionals, which boasts international reach and a social media following in the tens of thousands.
    An accomplished sales trainer, Paul first made a name for himself as The Cold Call Coach. Cold calling? You mean the sales practice that everyone dreads? Yes indeed. Paul actually likes cold calling, has been very successful at it, and teaches others how to do so fruitfully. His book, “The Secrets to Cold Call Success,” is an Amazon best-seller.
    A free thinker and truth seeker, Paul spearheaded the creation of Young Guns, a movement that encourages entrepreneurs and professionals to speak up, be real, and share the most authentic version of themselves. The world is a fast-moving place. They’re changing how business gets done.
    In between, Paul lives in Colgate, Wis., with his wife, Tanya, and their three children. The most important part of his unconventional life is the most conventional of all. He wouldn’t have it any other way.
    A few years ago, Paul nearly worked himself to death. He was a mess, stressed out and alienated from those who meant the most to him. God stepped in. Paul let Him take charge. Paul’s career took off, and he was soon speaking to audiences in the tens of thousands, inspiring and empowering people to use their unique qualities for success and fulfillment.
    A slightly unconventional path? Maybe so. For Paul, it’s the only one to follow.

    Operationalizing Servant Leadership

    Operationalizing Servant Leadership

    Inspired by CEO Frank Harrison's audacious goal to develop 17,000 servant leaders, Mark Whitacre and Melissa Blaylock are leading the charge to operationalize this vision throughout Coke Consolidated and around the globe. Listen in as they describe how the Chaplaincy program, t-Factor and other initiatives are helping both internal and external leaders to integrate faith into the workplace and transform workplace cultures.

    Mark Whitacre currently serves as Vice President of Culture and Care of Coca-Cola Consolidated, Inc.   Mark joined the t-factor initiative at Coca-Cola Consolidated as Executive Director in 2019.  Prior to joining Coke Consolidated, Mark served as the COO of Christian Business Men’s Connection (CBMC).  He was the COO and Chief Science Officer from 2006 to 2013 at Cypress Systems, Inc., a California biotechnology company where Mark still serves on their advisory board today.  After completing his B.S. and M.S. degrees at Ohio State University, Mark earned his Ph.D. degree at Cornell University in biochemistry.  He worked as an executive for three Fortune 500 companies, including Ralston Purina (now Nestle), Degussa (Evonik), and Archer Daniels Midland (ADM).  He was recruited at ADM when he was 32 as the President of the Biotech Division in 1989.  Mark has extensive international business experience, having lived in Germany for four years working for Evonik at their world headquarters in Frankfurt.

    Mark and his wife Ginger reside in Florence, KY.  They have been married 43 years and have three adult children.

    Melissa Blalock is the Director of Operations of the t-factor initiative, Business Culture Manager and Chaplaincy Liaison at Coca-Cola Consolidated.  Melissa joined the company in 2004 as the Executive Assistant to the former President & COO of Coke Consolidated.  She served as Manager of Corporate Affairs for five years wherein she supported various community, sustainability, communication and government relation projects and initiatives.  She has over three decades of experience in supporting high-level executive leadership roles and managerial experience in both the corporate and legal industries.  
     
    Melissa and her husband Allan reside in Waxhaw, North Carolina.
