Building Active Involvement in Tomorrow’s Nordic Unions

Learn from other trade union professionals

Howspace offers limitless possibilities for engaging, activating, and educating members. It streamlines collaboration, ensuring that every voice is heard in decision-making processes.

Together with our clients in Europe, we have tweaked our platform to support the specific needs of trade unions better than ever. Our customers continue to amaze us with the creative ways they leverage our product in their operations!

We are thrilled to offer you this rare opportunity to connect with your peers, innovate, and share best practices for modern ways of working! You are warmly welcome to join us in Helsinki on March 21, 2024, from 13.00–15.30 EET (Helsinki time).

During the afternoon, you will hear from an excellent line-up of professionals who will share their experiences and insights into transforming member-based organizations, as well as innovations in development and education work. Our guest speakers come from Finnish and Norwegian unions, but we are welcoming participants from all Nordic countries!

In addition to customer presentations, we will be facilitating a workshop to boost networking and sharing of learnings across different unions.

Practicalities:

  • Snacks and coffee will be served during the afternoon, and after the actual event we’ll be hosting a relaxed after-work at the Howspace office to continue networking and get a chance to meet & greet our CEO Ilkka Mäkitalo.
  • The event will take place in Sky Lounge Autotalo, Salomonkatu 17b, 00100 Helsinki – right next to Howspace office.
  • The event is free, but spots are limited. Professionals developing the union field – whether new faces or existing Howspace customers – are warmly welcome. We kindly ask only 2 people per union to attend to ensure all unions get a chance to participate.

Secure your spot by filling out the form. Looking forward to meeting you in Helsinki!
