It’s never too late to network! Check out our first Networking Breakfast being held in the Season of 2017/2018.
Theme: ”Mass Media and Propaganda”
Panelists: Maris Cepuritis, Juris Ulmanis and Sanita Jemberga.
Our Networking Breakfasts are a perfect way to meet with new and fellow partners over a quality breakfast menu that features Latvian produce along with insights from special guests, Corporate and Executive members at each event in the series.
The upcoming event in this series will take place at the AVALON Hotel and Conferences with an excellent breakfast (see the Menu below), with tables of six – eight to give guests more quality time to connect each other and build those all important networks. We will wrap up before 11:00 to allow you to get off to work in good time with some new learning and a few contacts in the bag before you sit down at your desk.
Our Networking Breakfasts are a perfect way to introduce a new member to the Chamber in a more relaxed environment and we would invite you to book a guest, bring them along and share the benefits of one of our events with them.
