Hosting regular networking meetings

One way for workers to learn about opportunities, and for companies to find potential workers, is for people to meet each other. Sounds simple, but it needs you. Yes, we are talking specifically to you. Networking meetings only work when people attend the events and actually meet, talk, share ideas and (hopefully) contact details.

WIISE arranges regular networking meetings around Etelä-Pohjanmaa. To make them informative and varied, we will invite guest speakers from the local business community and from companies. To make them useful, we will organise speed-networking sessions so people can meet; organisations, companies, individuals. Depending on demand, these events will be themed by industry to make them more relevant, for example, Hospitality, Food production, Metal manufacturing, Technology…
