Let’s cut the chase. If you are a leader or a business owner, your participation in Nordic Business Forum Helsinki, is a direct investment in you, your team, and your company. The event experience will help you connect with a pool of passionate business minds, find new business opportunities, expand your knowledge, and get new ideas and tools that you can share with your employees and colleagues back at the office after the event.
And yes, attending events can impact you and your business greatly. But why is it important that you bring your team along? Well if the list of reasons mentioned above wasn’t enough to convince you to take your team to the event, here we provide a few more:
Reason #1: Many minds > one mind
Whether it would be your management team, the board of directors or for example your marketing team, coming together with a team ensures that the ideas and insights you miss at the event would be caught by your team. In other words, bringing an entire team would maximize the value you get out of the event. Because let’s face it – one person can only absorb so much during two intensive days.
Also, when you learn something together and have a common understanding of the future challenges and opportunities, you can create a better future for your company. After the event, you can have a workshop with your entire team to go through all the new insights and ideas from the event. By combining many inspired minds with fresh new ideas, you will accelerate your team’s growth and development and expose them to even more new perspectives and ideas.
Reason #2: Training budget well spent
You probably have (or if you don’t, you should have) a training budget for yourself and for your employees. And yes, we know, training requires not only money but also time. This is why we have gathered a full year’s worth of training material into a compact two-day package for you and your team to efficiently start building a better business.
At the event, 14 of the world’s top experts and business influencers will step onstage. If you listen carefully and take notes, we are pretty sure you get at least one new tool or idea from each speech. This means that you would have at least one new idea for each month of the year after the event.
If you work 8 hours per day for around 260 days per year, it sums up to a bit over 2,000 hours a year. We dare to say, that spending around 20 hours of the entire 2,000 (around 1% of your team’s working time) with us and getting year’s worth of training, is time well spent.
If you then divide the price of the ticket (now 940€ + VAT) for each month, you would spend less than 100€ a month for getting a new idea or tool to improve your business. So, for example, for your management team of ten people, it would mean that you would spend less than 1,000€ a month for developing your entire management team for the entire year. We are pretty sure the ticket expenses would quickly turn into a great investment.
If that isn’t value for your training budget, we don’t know what is.
Reason #3: Make it a team-building day
We believe that a strong team that learns, develops and has fun together also works more efficiently and creatively. So why not get your team together and spend two inspirational days with us at the event? You (or your HR team) can save time (and maybe even money) for leaving the organization of a team-building day to us. We will provide an insightful program, serve all food and beverages and make sure your team enjoys the ride. You can focus on getting inspired and making sure that after the event, you and your team will actually implement the ideas and tools you got at the event.
If you still need convincing, remember this: “It’s all about growing your people, not you. You grow from the reflected glory of your people”, said Jack Welch. Also, keep in mind that the earlier you get your pass the better — the current prices are valid until February 28th!
Bonus: Organize a live stream training for your entire company
If bringing your team to the actual event is for one reason or another out of question for you, worry not! We have another solution for you. The program for the event will also be live-streamed and with the community pass, you can stream the program to your employees during or after the event. There are multiple ways for you to use the pass:
- You can organize a two-day training or team-building event for your employees during the actual event. Watching the event live when everything is happening is exciting!
- The keynotes will be available for 90 days after the event, so you can also organize multiple shorter training sessions to watch one or two keynotes at a time. This way you can spread the insightful content over the course of a few months and focus on implementing one or two ideas at a time.
And as the bonus of the bonus, with the same live stream pass, you get to watch the speeches from all of our other 2020 events too.
