Leading Business in a Changing World

Throughout last year all of us experienced some challenging times, may it be professionally or personally. One year later and with the successful rise of the vaccine, we hope that everything will go back to ‘normal’ sooner rather than later, but there might be some things that are here to stay!

Many businesses were forced to go digital in a very short time, and working from home turned out to be the new reality for the vast majority of office workers. Although, most of us miss the office dynamic and the occasional casual conversations near the coffee machine, for many people, working from home also showed its positive sides. On the other hand, offices could spend less on expensive rents, and workers wouldn’t take hours on their daily commute anymore. Even if some of us might migrate back to the offices again after Covid, one thing is true – working remotely has undergone an important revolution.

However, what does this mean for the future? How does this affect the workplace and labour law? How does this affect the business culture and HR management? And last but not least, what about business development?

These are the topics that will be discussed during our first edition of The International Netstorming Sessions joint event, organised by the Dutch, British and French bilateral Chambers of Commerce. Each topic will be addressed in moderated breakout rooms, where members of the three Chambers will come together to network and brainstorm.

About this event:

During this event, and after a short introduction by our keynote speaker – Tim Vieira (Bravegeneration, S.A.)  – a total of 60 members from the Dutch, British and French Chambers, will come together to brainstorm and network around one of the following topics:

  •  E-Workplace & Labour Law : moderated by David Carvalho Martins (DCM Lawyers | DPCC) and João Guimarães (Teixeira & Guimarães – Sociedade de Advogados | BPCC)
  •  E-Business Culture & HR Management : speaker Inês Veloso (Randstad | DPCC)- and Luís Morgadinho (Elemento Humano Portugal | FPCC)
  •  E-Business Development : moderated by Kasper van der Knaap (Koos Service Design | DPCC) and Raquel Finch (SIXT | BPCC)

There will be 2 breakout rooms per topic, each room with one moderator. The idea is for members from different Chambers to get to know eachother, expanding their business network, while discussing a mutual interest. When subscribing, please indicate in the NOTES your preference for the breakout session, as well as your next preferred one should the first topic already be fully booked.

Please also kindly note that registrations will be accepted on a first to come, first served basis, and that each Chamber can only accept 20 participants.
