This week we are joined by Michael Brough, Director of Strategic Engagement, for the Leadership Roundtable. The Leadership Roundtable promotes best practices and accountability in the Church. They bring expertise in management, finances, communications, and human resource development. They are also a strong supporter of incorporating the expertise of the laity in the Church. Michael and our Host, Jim Friend discuss the Roundtable’s work on many levels, including dioceses, parishes, schools and Catholic organizations. They will also talk about the Roundtable’s annual meeting at the end of June in Orlando, which is a prelude to the USCCB’s Convocation of Catholic Leaders meeting that same week.
Michael Brough offers 26 years of professional ministry in the Catholic Church. He has worked with and trained lay ecclesial ministers and priests in dioceses across the United States and in twelve countries. Michael has also served as a consultant to Catholic nonprofits, boards, foundations, and other institutions. Previously, he was the executive director of RENEW International. Michael began his career as an educator in Catholic High Schools and for SCIAF (Caritas Scotland). Michael received his MA in Social Anthropology from St Andrews University, Scotland and his Masters of Pastoral Studies from Loyola University, New Orleans. He has qualifications in clinical and pastoral counseling and education. Michael is from Edinburgh, Scotland and now lives in New Jersey, with his wife and their three daughters.
