Abelia is associated with Norways largest employers’ organisation; the NHO (Confederation of Norwegian Business and Industry). and is dedicated to improving the business environment for its member companies, so they can contribute to economic growth and social progress.
For this very reason Abelia asked TANIA ELLIS – The Social Business Company® to come and share the new rules of Business Unusual with Abelia’s member companies. A one-day workshop was dedicated to getting the members up-to-speed on both inner and outer globalization trends along with exercises and discussions about, how these trends will affect – and are already affecting – their business.

Feedback from the participants:
“What I found most inspiring about the workshop was the great overview of global business trends and the CSR agenda. The mini-group discussions worked really well, and there was a great drive in the group of participants.”
“The people and the energy during the workshop was great!”
“The presentation of international business cases and meeting other companies with some of the same challenges as us was very useful.”
“I particularly enjoyed the topics of employee engagement, principles for sustainable growth and the many examples of social and economic value creation.”
“The mix of examples and theory worked well.”
“It was great with an opportunity to thing “BIG” about why I am doing what I am doing. I enjoyed the great input and presentation of concepts, which will be useful for the next steps in our company. Being a pioneer, it was great being together with other like-minded!”
