It’s certainly possible that no three days were more jam-packed with knowledge offerings, mentorship opportunities, and new connections than BRMConnect 2019 in NOLA.


The huge success of our latest conference is largely due to the engagement and involvement from our single global BRM community!

We want to sincerely thank our sponsors, the attendees, volunteer working groups, members, storytellers, keynote speakers, and everyone behind the scenes that made this come to life in such a beautiful way. Check out #BRMConnect on social media to share in the experiences and takeaways from this year’s conference.

Here is just a taste of some of the amazing things you had to say about BRMConnect 2019 NOLA…

“…I am blown away by the warmth and kindness of people here. I have been to many IT conferences, I mean MANY. When you put a group of people in a room who has the word “relationship” in their title, and relationship is at the heart of their purpose, can you imagine how much energy and ease there is with this group?! Cannot wait to come back and share Enterprise Holdings BRM success story.”

- Ladan Kamfar, IT Department Lead, Enterprise

“Energy and collaboration was amazing. People want to help. It’s a community with a shared purpose.”

“I meet a lot of fellow BRMs and received great feedback from coaches. I have a lot of knowledge and foundation to take back to my team.”


“BRMConnect offered easy networking and I loved the research-based keynotes. I also loved COI on Mondays, especially the interactive component.”

- Brittany Lloyd, Fairview Health Services

“Exceptional, enlightening, and a lot of good knowledge to take back with me – especially BRM Philosophy.”

Unveiling of Relationshipism

The announcement and introduction of Relationshipism to the world kicked off our three-day World BRMConnect conference.

Relationshipism is the theory of being relationship-centered in all aspects of life and especially in organizations. It promotes trusted teams, a mindful focus on authentic relationships, increased personal power and fearless creativity. Relationshipism, being built on principles of cognitive science and social intelligence, provides infinite value as it expands the focus of society from shareholder value to the satisfaction of personal purpose, organizational purpose, and societal impact.”

2019 Global BRM Community Excellence Awards

Each year, the global BRM community recognizes individual and organizational commitment to the BRM role, discipline, capability, and philosophy through our Global BRM Community Excellence Awards. Fellow members of the global BRM community nominated this year’s winners.

Experience NOLA!

Each and every BRMConnect conference has a unique experience offered to attendees. On the second night of this year’s conference, attendees took to the streets of New Orleans for the Second Line Parade, equipped with The Roots of Music marching band, a non-profit dedicated to supporting, teaching, promoting, and protecting at-risk youth through music education.

Second Line is a tradition in brass band parades in NOLA. The “main line”, or first line, is the main section of the parade. Those who follow the band simply to enjoy the music and participate are called the “second line”.
