Thursday 24 September 15:30 – Marketing Your Business During Corona

We’re very excited to announce our fifth Helsingborg Business Forum Online event, where we’ll be joined by Ann-Christin Lindstedt, Brand Experience Strategist at Sweden’s most international agency group made up of Graal Brand Agency, Pyramid Communication and Petra Digital Agency. She also serves as VP Brand and Marketing for UTOMO Information Management.

Born in Norway, raised in Texas, and living in Sweden, she considers herself a lifelong international. Also a writer since she could first hold a pen, Ann-Christin knows that storytelling, shared experience, and empathy bond humans across all borders. It’s no surprise, then, that she teaches these as roots of good marketing – in corona and out.

Ahead of our upcoming webinar, she hints: “These corona times have businesses scrambling for new strategies. Yet, it’s important to remember that in all shifting times, our business cargo remains the same – it’s simply the vehicles that change. When you understand that, it’s easier to be more purposeful and less panicked.”

Thursday 9 July 15:30 – Financial Support for Small Businesses during COVID-19

Welcome to our third online event, when you’ll be able to hear about financial and other types of support for small businesses at this time.

We’re delighted to announce our guest speaker, Rabie Salem, the CEO of Contentor AB, one of the partners in the project Stöd till Företag (Support for Business). Rabie will talk about Contentor’s collaboration in this project, which assists international entrepreneurs to access information about COVID-19 business measures in different languages. He’ll also share his personal journey and experience of the topic and give a practical perspective of the measures in place.

Rabie came to Sweden as a six-year old of Palestinian descent and has had an exciting career in economy, marketing, newspapers and football, in both corporate and entrepreneurial environments. The notion of access to information for the foreign-born community is close to his heart, as he tells us:

“I am both proud and honored that we can be a part of this important project. We got the opportunity to collaborate with partners to help companies and make important information and support available. This is an important topic. When I grew up, many times I had to help my family and others to translate and understand messages from authorities. I’m happy that Contentor together with Setterwalls and Skandia can play a meaningful and important role in a difficult situation. Truly inspiring!”
