The BAM Global Congress is now online. The situation around the world is challenging, but our mission to invigorate the global BAM movement remains the same!
The Congress is committed to:
- Provide a global meeting point for the BAM movement
- Strengthen all parts of the BAM ecosystem
- Add value to the BAM community with unique content
- Create forums for discussion, deal-making, and network-building
An online event, less constrained by time and place, allows us to be more creative. The result is a virtual BAM Global Congress main event in April framed by a series of lead in and follow up events that make the most of the new format.
The Pre-series of webinars will begin at the end of October 2020 and run through to March 2021. Each month in October, November, January, February and March there will be a cluster of three webinars on key topics for the BAM community, on consecutive days towards the end of each month. In December there will be no webinars, but a series of hosted online meet-ups and activities for network groups.
The Congress Main Event online will run over three days from 28 to 30 April 2021. Each day will have a particular theme with plenary sessions, discussion times, and breakouts. Each Main Stage (plenary) block will be repeated for different time zones, so that the vast majority of attendees around the world can take part live during sociable hours.

Detailed Speaker and Session information will be up on the website Congress Program page in early April. We have over 100 contributors to the Congress program, including plenary speakers, fireside chat guests, breakout speakers, breakout panelists and roundtable facilitators!
Please note that the Congress isn’t a ‘personality driven’ event where the main draw is one or two keynote speakers. Instead the Congress is a unique gathering of the global BAM community, with every continent and type of organisation represented. There will be dozens of key leaders sharing and multiple business stories on each day – many are not ‘well known names’, but are faithful servants with years of BAM experience behind them!

The Post-series of workshops and meet-ups will run from May to July 2021. The program for these online events is yet to be finalised, but will include practical equipping workshops and panels, to cover practical BAM topics for every stage of the BAM journey.There will also be continued networking events and meet-ups to enable you to continue to collaborate with others. The goal is to create on-ramps and connections.
