Nordic Business Forum Sweden is only a few days away, which means that it’s time to get ready for networking!
Meeting new people and building new business relationships is one of the greatest motivators for people to attend our events. Only one new valuable connection can in the end of the day be way more valuable than the price you paid for the ticket. Now in #NBFSweden you have an opportunity to build relationships with 1,000 business people. Finding the right connections among those hundreds of people can be quite a challenge, which is why Brella is there to help you.
How to get started?
Brella is a networking tool designed for attendees in events such as Nordic Business Forum and it’s very simple to use. It only takes a couple of minutes to create your profile and actually even less if you have a LinkedIn profile. After logging in you just set what you are offering and what you are looking for and Brella will do the rest – match you with the right people.
How to book meetings?
Once you have “a match” in Brella, you can send a meeting request to the person and agree on a meeting at the event. You can pick a suitable time slot and when the meeting has been accepted, the program automatically picks a table for you at the Brella networking area. After that, all you need to do is show up prepared for your meeting!
How to access Brella?
All Nordic Business Forum Sweden attendees can access Brella through the link we’ve sent to your email, through our website or through our event app. All of you live stream viewers will have Brella in use as well. There you can book skype meetings with the other live stream viewers.
3 tips for using Brella
1. Sign up now
Many of our event guests and viewers have already signed up and started booking meetings. Thus, in case you want to meet the right people, go log in now and start networking already now!
2. Get prepared and be present
When meeting new people, you need to be able to present yourself briefly. Especially for the Brella meetings you need to be prepared as they only last 15 minutes. Already in advance think about your value proposition: who you are, what you do, who you do it for and why you do it. This is how the person you meet can immediately hear, how you can be helpful to them. Yes, don’t meet people to sell something or get something out of them – show people what you can give to them. In addition, you have to be on time for your meeting and be present in the situation. Listen to the person and give them space to talk.
Don’t forget to give your own business card or contact information and remember to get theirs. You also need to use those contacts and follow up with the person after the event. You can for example send a quick email or message in LinkedIn and thank them for meeting you. From there on you can start building the long-term business relationship that you were looking for.
