Creative Expat Meet Up // Breaking the Ice

This time we’ll do more than sipping drinks and listen to music. We’ll be very concrete and explore the possibilities in the network. And afterwards, we just might go for some good music over a few drinks.

We like to do business with people we know, like and trust. A large network creates many business opportunities. However it can be a challenge to grow a network, after all it takes courage to open up to new people and it takes time to build genuine relationships, this is especially relevant when living in a foreign country.

This workshop will help you “break the ice” and get to know the other participants. You will learn about each other’s businesses and uncover possibilities for collaboration. You may be surprised to find what the network contains. And hopefully it leads to new projects.

It will be a relaxed, fun workshop in English by empathy- & creativity-consultant Nina Aksell, see more at The workshop will not only grow your network but will also help you discover collaborative business opportunities.
