B2BLiST networking done right
The LiST / B2BLiST builds on that we all are sincere, active, participate, invest our time and
effort, and focus on accruing business all of us. The B2BLiST is a forum for business either
working in- and for the local market, cross-border Pan Baltic and other. Sometimes it is I, the
project manager, other times it is a member who comes with business and ideas. The
association operates regardless of season via meetings larger and smaller, day time and
evenings, both topical as well as A-topical. To present and put forward the businesses under
our umbrella, to create opportunity, to connect with business elsewhere to see, us, we the
country grow in business. Put in simple words: ‘’Making Business Happen’’.
The membership levels reflect commitment, with more benefits and services added as we go.
We are not political, just business! For tax- and practical reasons, the business association
runs under PRIME Staffing & Consulting SIA.
As a project manager I need know your goals and time line to achieve, and also receive
updates of anything changing. I will put this forward when I speak to and invite speakers,
participants, sponsors as I meet many people with various agendas, and some things take
longer, others shorter time to materialize. It’s MATCH-Making! Just the word ‘more clients’ is not the answer,
we need know more exactly. For that reason we shall sit down and discuss your interests and
seal an individual contract between us.
The B2BliST started back in 2007/2008 originally as a way to contravene the effects of the
then crisis, as I noted no one knew what to do. Especially among my foreign clients who
were on foreign soil. It started with small Friday lunch meetings, (and a newsletter), to put
people together in a relaxed friendly atmosphere. It worked well, and we placed people
despite the sad situation! I selflessly, to show good example but also create a productive base,
brought in all my clients, many others, and also created a job seeker membership- and
-system, to promote promising individuals on a ‘’win-win’’-basis. The result grew as we
went, this was totally new to Latvia and the membership, and so the variety of events,
increased, topping off at 21(!) in a year. This time we aim at 5-10+ events, to start with. We
made a pause in 2013 as times had changed, and the worst was over. I however have seen too
little change and think that so much more need be done, and can be done – but we need do
this ourselves, help one-another, not wait for the silver platter to be offered or the EU to bail
us out – no one is coming for us unless we ourselves put in the work!
The advent and impact of the Corona virus has shown how vulnerable we are and the risk is
we run out of steam, because we lose the clients we have spent months and years to build,
seeing them vanishing before our eyes, just like plans for our entities, our hopes for good careers
and a decent way-of-life, now are being challenged! For this reason, more than ever we
business owners, decision-takers and managers need come together and step it up! Thus, joining The LiST to
meet others like minded, should be your choice!

Our Supporters say
Faced with the Corona virus hysteria, we just managed to run two events prior, early year. Stay tuned. -We are coming back for more!:)
On January 31, a Friday early evening, upon advise we ran an ‘’Italian flavoured evening on Italian food stuffs, wine and Italy’’ and invited business managers, several with personal experience of Italy, some doing business with Italy. The purpose to learn, get acquainted, see opportunities and be able to interact with those that could know – AND for business in general, in a convivial atmosphere, end-of-week! Local shop-owner for iTiT, Gianluigi Rondano (20+ years in Riga), stood our host, but having had only 9 days to put it together, we felt we were not done and a date all could agree on was Feb 21. Both events filled up, business owners exclusively – as a result we enjoyed great Italian delicacies, wine and meeting new people.
People came from logistics, construction, office services, hospitality, trading, real estate management, consulting, energy, automation, branding, marketing, project management, educational training, and fashion just to mention but some. And from at least half-a-dozen countries…-Needless to say, our excellent host, Gianluigi benefited, and all of us left with smiles – as it should be! A posteriori! /HenrikM
P.s. It has been understood his wines (very elegant and tasty, sourced there by himself, in Italy) are unique, and his Grappa, in value for money – is exceptional!:). At Kr Valdemara 137-K1, Riga. Gianluigi’s opening hours are week days 13:00- 20:00, Saturday’s 13:00-17:00. Gianluigi speaks Latvian, Russian, Italian and English !
P.s.II. Be careful how you park near the shop in-the-parking-lot. The neigh-boors…are most mischievious
