What is The LiST? Why Join?
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 to 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, Riga, LATVIA.
As a project manager I need know your goals and time line to build all so we can 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 words ‘we need 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!
WELCOME to the B2BLiST /The LiST!
