Mark Whitacre: “If you’re not a servant leader, you’re a selfish leader.”

Video Icon

Mark Whitacre shares the story of God radically changing his life and discusses what it looks like to be faithful in the workplace. This video was recorded at Faith at Work: Business as Mission — a 2nd annual conference to encourage and resource business owners and leaders to leverage their positions within the marketplace to make disciples and glorify Christ. (Read a recap of the event.)

Mark Whitacre is a seasoned executive who is extremely appreciative of redemption and second chances in America. Mark is the highest-level executive to ever turn whistleblower in U.S. history. His undercover work with the FBI during the ADM scandal was the inspiration for the major motion picture, “The Informant,” starring Matt Damon as Mark Whitacre. And was the inspiration for the Discovery Channel Documentary, titled “Undercover.” Drawing from his unique history, Mark provides one-of-a-kind insight into corporate ethics, corporate greed, and the warning signs of a flawed corporate leadership.

There's no better place for ministry than the workplace.
