Richard Brunton was a pioneer of the market research industry in New Zealand. He co-founded Colmar Brunton in 1981 and built the business into the country’s best known and most trusted research company.
He started a “Better Business, Better World” campaign, which was a personal crusade of sorts, teaching others how to create profit by creating purpose, or making money by making meaning. He believes (with the research to back it up) that organizations that are driven by the big ideal of making their customers’ lives better, will create more shareholder value in the long run, than those who focus on other aims.
His articles, speeches and unique perspectives have been published in various magazines and newspapers all over the world. Richard was inducted into the Marketing Hall of Fame in 2005, and became a life member of the Marketing Research Society of New Zealand in 2010.
Since retiring as the Executive Chairman of Colmor Brunton in 2014, he has devoted his time to ministry work and writing. He has written a couple of books, one of which is titled, “The Awesome Power of the Blessing” which we will be discussing today in the conclusion of our great, two part interview!
What is the difference between praying a blessing over someone and interceding for them in prayer?
You share we are not to “judge” when praying a blessing over someone. What do you mean by that?
One thing you shared in your book is how you bless others that cut you off in traffic. I’ve been doing that for years and thought I was the only one doing it! Praise God!
Tell us about the revelation you received about speaking a blessing for your own skin…
You also teach us to say a blessing over our own minds. Is that because we are harboring bad thoughts or listening to the devil as he plants these thoughts in our minds? How does that work?
How can we bless our communities and nations? I know I pray up the “hedges of protection around the borders of our land, etc.” But how should you go about praying the BLESSING over our land and nations?
You close your book out with the idea that we should “Bless God” in our prayers as well. Explain that section for us?
How can someone get in touch with you, if they have a question or possibly to do an interview such as this? How can they get in touch with you?
Will you pray us out with the "Father's Blessing?"
