2nd TIAO workshop participants share their views about “Matching Published Opportunities with Member’s Needs”

September 11, 2019

The second TIAO strategy workshop will be held this year on 26th & 27th of September at the historic Leuven Institute for Ireland in Europe. Founders of TIAO launched the CONNECTS platform with a mission to digitalise and interconnect all Chambers of Commerce in the world. Currently, there are 27 Chambers of Commerce from 23 different countries on this business matchmaking platform.

The purpose of this workshop is to position Chambers as the Gateway to Business Development for the 21st century entrepreneur. The workshop will also feature practical measures to support Chamber moderators in fully leveraging the CONNECTS platform to serve their members and working better together as an international network of Chambers. Last, but not least to engage and motivate all workshop participants (more than 40 confirmed) from across the globe by connecting with and learning from each other. During the workshop we will discuss four topics. Here is what our participants are going to share about – Matching Published Opportunities with Member’s Needs.

Malin Geanovu | Business Development Executive – International Trade at Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce

“We keep a close and strong relationship with our global members and know their businesses needs and aspirations, and we regularly recommend them the business opportunities fitting their profile.

We are looking forward to participating in the 2nd TIAO Workshop with the clear purpose of getting involved in the future development of the CONNECTS platform and continuing the great relationship we have with TIAO.”

Luc Van Looveren | senior advisor EU-relations – Voka Chamber of Commerce Antwerp Waasland

“Voka – CCI Antwerp-Waasland consults regularly opportunities posted by other Chambers on CONNECTS with the aim to detect promising trade and cooperation proposals which can be interesting for our members.

During the workshop we will share our experiences and recommendations regarding this facility within CONNECTS.

We hope, with our participation at the workshop, to contribute to a better use of this facility and to discuss some possible improvements.”
