Vermont Catholic Professionals is a group of individuals involved in the business and professional communities in Vermont.
Join us for the next VCP Networking Breakfast on:
Wednesday, April 19 at 8:30 am
Deacon R.J. Dourney
Deacon RJ Dourney, ordained last year, also will offer personal testimony to the power of Catholic networking.
“Over the past 30 years as an executive, I have encountered some of the most hostile, non-Christian environments and managed to remain true to my Catholic faith while succeeding in a business,” said the seasoned entrepreneur and executive who has successfully developed multiple companies throughout the United States, Europe, Central America and Asia including the development of more than 2,000 restaurants. “Though some doors have been closed to me through the years, many more have been opened by God as a result of following a few simple rules.”
He will share these rules while also sharing the impact Catholic networking has had on his career and life.
The presentation will be at 9:00 a.m.If you are unable to attend in person, we have a Zoom option. The speaker’s presentation will be live-streamed via Zoom.
This networking breakfast event will be held at the Roman Catholic Diocese of Burlington Brady Center, 55 Joy Drive, S. Burlington.
Thank you to our sponsor
