BAM323 Business as Mission Conference

Business as Mission Conference

Bringing together mission minded leadership: business, church, community

Virtual | 10.1.20 | 8:30 am - 12:00 pm CST 

What is BAM323? A virtual, half-day conference for those who desire to create sustainable impact and live out faith through their vocation.

Lipscomb University’s Center for Business as Mission (BAM) is excited to announce its second annual Business as Mission Conference, called BAM323, coming remotely October 1! BAM is an exciting movement that is inspiring business leaders, businesses, entrepreneurs, churches, and investors to engage more deeply in mission and to achieve sustainable impact.

This year’s virtual conference will focus on value creation through the practice of redemptive business. We’ll be hearing from industry veterans like retired CEO of Popeyes, Cheryl Bachelder, who transformed this struggling restaurant chain through her intense focus upon servant leadership, and Mike Sharrow who oversees and inspires thousands of faith-centered business cohorts across the globe through his role as CEO and President of C12.  We’ll also be learning through the struggles of those like Mark Whitacre whose story was told in the movie The Informant. As the executive director of t-factor, Mark is now leading a movement that is training corporate leaders how to live out their faith in their businesses.  

Our conference will also feature the expertise of Dee Ann Turner who helped create what has become the standard for company culture through her 33 years as a VP at Chick-fil-A.  Other speakers in our lineup include Joao Mordomo in Brazil who is a global catalyst for Business As Mission around the world, LaDonna Thornton who is an expert at the intersection of supply chain and BAM at Auburn University, and author, Al Erisman, who served over 30 years as a director with Boeing and just authored an outstanding book that tells the incredible ServiceMaster story.

We look forward to having you join us online!
