Throughout the year, BelCham organizes many events that bring the Belgian-American community together to network, educate, and promote the Belgian brand. Rest assured, BelCham members also enjoy connecting over a Belgian beer with new friends in a social context.
See a list below of the type of events we host.
Our monthly Captain Sessions provide a unique opportunity to meet the prominent businesswomen and men who are at the helm of large corporations. These captains of industry have the daunting task of combining the daily command of a multinational with their private and family life. They donate precious time to share their insights and experiences on how to manage and balance such an existence. The intimate setting and personal approach make these sessions truly inspirational.
Captains at BelCham
Our Learning and Development Sessions are a well-attended series of interesting speakers who offer valuable insights and perspectives on (business) life.
BelCham’s Pitching sessions, otherwise known as Atelier Meetup’s are an excellent platform for young companies to present themselves to potential clients and investors.
Our Active Sessions are an ode to all Movers and Shakers. With these sessions you may be able to take moving in the right circles quite literally. And the shaking applies both to hands and bodies alike. We all know deals are made where bonds are forged. And we take that way beyond golf courses and tennis courts (though we are a big fan of those as well). So come try something new! We’re talking hiking, aerial silks, karting, art & spinning classes, cooking & “setting up a workshop” workshops, among many other ridiculously enjoyable activities led by BelCham experts. Feel free to suggest and/or (help) organize our efforts to build muscles and community. It’s networking and it’s fun. That means it’s great business too.
Every so often it’s time to shake off the KPI’s, conference calls and budget constraints. And what better way to do it than with some Belgians & friends at one of our parties?
BelCham’s bassline may be business, but our events provide the melody. Chamber music with a twist, if you will.
We will have you bumping, grinding and booty-popping to BelCham’s Belgian black, red and yellow heartbeat, in no time.
If there’s one BelCham event you should be attending this year, this is it! (But why would you stick to one?) BelCham’s Annual Gala is first and foremost a time to honor and shine, to aspire and inspire. It’s when we celebrate important, sometimes even lifelong achievements of people that have shown us how perseverance and brilliance are the way to success. During this Belgian-American state of the union you will eat, drink, laugh, applaud and party to your heart’s content. And maybe even a little more.
[VIRTUAL] MasterMind Session 2.0 : Doing sales in times of uncertainty
Now more than ever, we believe in coming together and supporting one another to get through these challenging times. We invite our community members to join us for a Mastermind Session; a peer-to-peer mentoring session allowing participants to discuss what they want to talk about and receive feedback, input or advice from the rest of the group. For this second session, we will particularly focus on business development and sales challenges (e.g. how to approach new leads, how to shift/adjust your sales strategy, how to create relevant and timely content as part of your marketing strategy etc).
We will be joined by Stephen Anderson from Keysan Group (LinkedIn), a start-up sales consultant with Enterprise Sales and Project Management experience across numerous industries.
How does it work?
- Set-up: Every participant will get 1 minute to contextualize/explain his or her challenge.
- Group input: The group will get 3 minutes to respond with ideas and best practices.
- Facilitator (BelCham) will keep track of time and send a recap with resources and tools.
We request that every participant brings the following to share with the group:
- One thing that you need help on, are struggling with or want to brainstorm about
- One action or tool that you are using in response to COVID-19 that you have taken and is working well in your business activities
While your purpose of joining our mastermind session is to help overcome challenges in your own business, it’s just as much about stepping back and helping others. Join to gain AND provide new perspectives.
Chatham House rules apply. This is a safe zone.
