4th Adria Business Network Held at Forum Congress Center in Zagreb

By 7 February 2020

February 7, 2020 - The fourth Adria Business Network was held at the FORUM Convention Center, organized by entrepreneurs Zeljka Barisic and Kristina Krstinic. The event is aimed at business networking in Croatia and the region, creating business opportunities and fostering continuing education. Through the event, everyone is offered the chance to find new clients and enter into lucrative deals.

Guest lecturer Dace Ulste, director of BNI Croatia, shared her years of experience about how networking is just like the word 'networking', and that it takes years for you to build a good quality network of contacts. Each ongoing contact begins with a follow-up within 24 hours, with additional contact after seven days through which your relationship will grow, and a renewed contact after 30 days, to know at what stage your relationship is. They should always be guided by the thought of Givers Gain, because those who give, receive.

A look at what the organizers and presenters said about the event called Turning Contacts into Contracts below.

“Although I have been extensively involved in networking for over a decade, tonight's lecture has brought me many valuable lessons that I will apply in the continuation of my business. In addition to our loyal visitors, this time, we had a lot of new ones, so this contributed to quality networking in the final part of the event. Anyone considered a networker who has not visited us yet should do so. Our event is a place where you will meet new quality people and, over time, build a business but friendly relationship with them. This is how we function, so we want to motivate you in that direction, because it has proven to be the right thing to do,” said Željka Barišić, owner of Forca Digital Agency and co-founder of Adria Business Network, after the event.
