New York, NY (PRWEB) August 5, 2005 –

The executives participating in the discussion are: Pat Spainhour, Chairman and CEO of Ann Taylor, Inc; Jill Lamar, Director of the Discover Great New Writers program at Barnes & Noble and Tom Lane, retired Managing Director of 17 years at Goldman Sachs who is currently a Partner in a new private equity fund, Energy Capital Partners.

The executives will share how they have managed successful business careers and continue to walk with God in the midst of a demanding environment.

The discussion will be followed by a Q & A time and is part of a program hosted from August 4-8 by The King’s College for TeenPact. TeenPact is a comprehensive leadership experience for young people where they are challenged to grow personally and spiritually.

“We want these students to understand that ideas have real life consequences. Ideas are not just ethereal theories. Ideas effect government, business, the media and other key institutions within society. Students will have the chance to see ideas in action at strategic NYC institutions and to meet executives that traffic in these ideas ever day,” stated Duanne Moeller, the Dean of Students at The King’s College.
