As a leader or business owner, attending Oslo Business Forum 2023 is more than just an event - it's an investment in yourself, your team, and your company. With the opportunity to connect with a diverse group of passionate C-level executives, you'll gain invaluable insights, expand your knowledge, and access a wealth of new ideas and tools to help take your organization to the next level.
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, here we provide a few more:
Reason #1: The Power of Team Attendance
By attending an event with your management team, board of directors, or any specific group, you can maximize the value you get out of it. With different people picking up different insights, you can combine all those fresh ideas into a workshop with your entire team after the event. This way, you'll accelerate your team's growth and development. Additionally, bringing your team to the event is a smart choice for building new business relationships. With 3,000 attendees from various countries, networking becomes much more manageable when you have a team with you.
Reason #2: Efficient Leadership Learning
“Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other”, said John F. Kennedy. We agree; leadership and learning go hand in hand. Therefore, you probably have (or if you don’t, you should have) a training budget for yourself and for your employees. And we know, training your team 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.
At the event, 10 top leadership and business experts will step on stage. If you listen carefully and take notes, you’ll probably get at least one development idea or tool 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 argue, 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.
How about money then? If you divide the price of the ticket (now 9,995 + VAT) for each month, you would spend a bit over 800 NOK 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 around the 850€ 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: Build a Strong Team
Effective teamwork is critical for the success of any organization, as it enhances collaboration, communication, and problem-solving skills among team members. However, building a strong team requires more than just assigning tasks and setting deadlines. Team-building activities that foster camaraderie and a sense of community can go a long way in creating a positive and productive work environment.
Attending team-building events is a great way to strengthen relationships among team members while also gaining valuable insights and skills. By spending two days at an event designed specifically for team building, you and your colleagues can bond over shared experiences, engage in fun activities that encourage trust and collaboration, and learn new strategies for improving team performance.
Furthermore, the benefits of team building extend beyond the immediate impact on team dynamics. When team members feel connected and supported, they are more likely to be motivated and engaged in their work. This, in turn, can lead to increased productivity, creativity, and innovation.
So, why not invest in your team's development by attending our team-building event? As Jack Welch, former CEO of General Electric, famously said, "It's all about growing your people, not you. You grow from the reflected glory of your people."
PS. If you’re not the one sitting on top of your organization’s training budget, show this list of reasons to the person in your organization who is and convince them to invest in the learning and development of your team.
