I've found Q and B to be a very interesting group. Eoin, Tim and the others are doing a great job, and I'm pleased to be a member. I'm glad I [had a wide-ranging] discussion that helped me to understand how my own beliefs and ideas align (or not) with current Quaker thought (or at least the current thinking of Friends in business in the UK). It was a great start to my membership with the group.

I've found that the Quaker principles of constructive listening and measured self-expression are of great value in the workplace especially in the Board context. Also that the practice of discernment, or of working to one's deeper convictions, has an unexpected bonus (while it may alienate some who are simply money-driven) of forming a stronger bond with colleagues and clients around a deeper purpose. This is immensely valuable, and brings the flood of light over the ocean of darkness.
