Director Summit: Communicating Liberty Through Business
It’s not every day when nearly 20 business men and women gather to discuss their role in defending freedom and prosperity around the world. But this is what happened at our most recent Director Summit in Bonita Springs, Florida.
Business leaders from three continents gathered to discuss how the Bastiat Society could encourage others in business to use their connections—and their place in the community—to promote liberty and influence others in a positive way.
We started the day by discussing best practices for running a Bastiat Society chapter. This was followed by a lunchtime talk featuring Larry Reed, president of FEE, to discuss the “Art of Persuasion.” We concluded the day with presentations from various people who are advancing liberty in different capacities around the world—in addition to participating in the Bastiat Society.
It is apparent that the Bastiat Society is uniquely positioned to develop thousands of liberty advocates within the business community. Our chapter leaders and their members continue to find new and exciting ways to be both business leaders and defenders of liberty around the world.
