IIBA UK | The International Institute of Business Analysis, UK Chapter

Recent events have escalated the need for BAs to heighten their skills and understand upcoming technologies. Conferences are an excellent way of doing that, but can be expensive.

IIBA UK has been involved with BALIFE since its inception. Originally an IIBA UK Professional Development Day, it has rapidly grown into an independent conference, run by experienced Business Analysts in Scotland.

The enthusiastic steering committee has a proven track record of attracting interesting and relevant speakers to share their insights at BALIFE.

"IIBA UK is pleased to support BALIFE's goal of providing this affordable conference with its mix of high quality and interesting speakers."

YBA | Young Business Analysts

YBA (Young Business Analysts) was founded in 2020 as a network for young and early career BA’s to learn, share best practice, seek out advice and extend their network. Just under two years later, YBA now has nearly 1300 members and followers across LinkedIn and Instagram, with lots of exciting events in the pipeline for the coming year.

"YBA are very happy and excited to be involved again with BALIFE2022 with the wealth of knowledge and experience on display from the speakers and as a chance for our members to grow their understanding and broaden their knowledge of the awesome discipline that is Business Analysis!"
