What does boma mean?

The roots of the word “Boma” date back to Africa - the cradle of all mankind - and lie in the languages spoken in the African Great Lakes. The Boma was a sacred space for community gatherings and meaningful discussions to be had, a space where decisions were made and actions were taken.

The pacemakers

The Boma founding team has over 50 years’ experience creating massive global communities, world class events and conferences, industry leading corporate training, and cutting edge futurist curriculum—all with a focus on positive impact.
