Good vibes and inspiring people and conversations awaits you at our next NORDIX event. On top of that, there will be a free welcome drink (beer or wine) between 18.30 and 19.00.
And, thanks to our friendly networking “challenge” to speak to at least three people you didn’t know from before, you will find it super easy to move around and meet as many people as you like.
NORDIX is an informal after-work event open to everyone who would like to build genuine connections within the Nordic community in Zurich.
Join us on Thursday, 21 November 2019 at The Studio (Dufourstrasse 23, 8008 Zürich), 18.30 onwards.
No registration necessary – feel free to be spontaneous!
The Art of Friendly Networking
Every success in life and business comes down to one thing: Relationships.
Even more than your social media network, the most important asset you have is your real life, tangible, reach-out-and-talk-to-someone network.
At NORDIX we cultivate the Art of Friendly Networking because we know that all successful networkers focus on building trusted relationships and adding value to other people.
If you can leave others feeling even better, more uplifted, and energised after their interaction with you, they are more likely to remember you!

NORDIX is a joint initiative of the Norwegian Club Switzerland and the Finnish-Swiss Chamber of Commerce.
For femte år på rad har Norgesklubben gleden av å invitere medlemmer og norgesvenner til en fiske-middag det vil snakkes lenge om.
Skreiaften 2020 holdes i et av Luzern sine historisk bygninger i gamlebyen;
nemlig i hjemmet til den 200 år gamle foreningen
«Maskenliebhaber Gesellschaft Stadt Luzern».
De av dere som er litt kjent med den sveitsiske tradisjonen «Fasnacht» forstår hva det snakkes om her,
dette er en genuin mulighet til å oppleve et lokale få har tilgang til!
Takk til Tove som har gjort dette mulig for oss. Så fint å ha en skattekiste av medlemmer i NKS!

Skreien vil som alltid ha hovedrollen, omringet av kjente norske ingredienser, vi møtes til Aperitiff,
etterfulgt av en 3 retters middag med god drikke som følgesvenn!
Skreien blir som alltid levert direkte fra det høye nord og er garantert fersk, fin og hvit i kjøttet!
Vi holder oss tradisjonstro, men influert av det landet vi alle har flyttet til.
Mat, prat, underholdning og dans er noe av det vil kan by på.
Det er begrenset antall plasser ved bordene så meld dere på først som sist.
