My guest this week is Greg Jones, president of Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn. A celebrated speaker, author, educator and business leader, Greg believes in supporting communities through hope-inspired leadership and instilling a sense of purpose and entrepreneurial mindset in the next generation.
Greg speaks all throughout the Middle Tennessee area and beyond on a variety of related topics and is excited about his work across campus and throughout the Nashville community. Under Greg’s leadership, Belmont is furthering its efforts to become the leading Christ-centered University in the world, radically championing the pursuit of life abundant for all people.
I come from a family of preachers. When people asked me why I went into the ministry, I said, “It’s the family business. I didn't know I had a choice.”
Character, purpose and an entrepreneurial mindset – those are all passions of mine.
I coined the term that I call “traditioned innovation” to say that the best of innovation draws on the best of the past.
We need to be nurturing imagination and recovering that bigger sense of who we are.
