II Brazilian Professional Meeting discusses new projects in Oslo

News Posted on Sat, October 24, 2015 14:02:51

More than 50 Brazilian professionals attended the event

Team Culturas held a presentation about cross cultural services

The II Professional Meeting was held on October 21st and gathered a group of Brazilians to talk about the future of the community network in Oslo.

Last 21st of October, BNCC, with the support of the Brazilian Embassy in Oslo and Culturas, organized the second meeting of Brazilian professionals in Norway. More than 50 professionals attended the event, demonstrating the strength of the Brazilian workforce gradually arriving to Norway.

This strength can be multiplied through the formation of an established community with common goals. BNCC has made itself available to collaborate in the structuring of this community since last year, inviting all Brazilian professionals to become members. We would like to thank participants for their presence and also invite those who did not have the chance to meet us to become a part of this group.

All interested Brazilian professionals are invited to become members of BNCC. In doing so, they will have access to the benefits of being a member of the network as whole, but also, will automatically be included in this community that works towards strengthening this network and bringing benefits to its Brazilian members more specifically.

The main goal of the second meeting was presenting the project to strength the business network among Brazilian professionals and companies in Norway, which started last year. In the occasion, the Ambassador of Brazil, HE Flavio Helmond Macieira welcomed the group while Culturas and Brazilian-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce (BNCC) held a brief presentation.

Right after, members of the community introduced themselves and talked about their experience with BNCC.

The event was then followed by a happy hour session with tacos and drinks.

Culturas more connected to you

(see Portuguese version below)

In October, Culturas has launched new social media channels: the Instagram account, this blog and the YouTube channel. The main goal is to get connected and be more connected to people interested in cross cultural subjects with international business as a background.

On Instagram (follow us!), you will find weekly pictures from Norway’s sightseeing or suggestions of places to visit #culturasonthego, as well as teasers from our news, events and projects.

If you are searching for news and extra content about intercultural topics, the place to look at is this blog 😉 Here you can read about Culturas’ work, events and projects and articles about cross cultural subjects written by our columnists.

On our brand new YouTube channel (sign up here!), there are two different approaches: the first one is videos about Culturas’ events and the second is our Vlog. The first series of the Vlog is called Dicas para adaptacão na Noruega (How to adapt in Norway, in Portuguese) which is a free and extra content focused on foreigners who have just moved to Norway. We have already gave informal tips about recycling and how to make Brazilian tapioca with local products in Oslo.

On top of that, you can also find us on Facebook (here!) or send us an e-mail to Let’s keep in touch!

Desde o início de Outubro, a Culturas lancou várias novidades: a conta no Instagram, o blog e a estreia do canal do YouTube. O principal objetivo é estar mais conectado com pessoas interessadas em treinamento cultural, experiência como expat e relacões comerciais entre Brasil e Noruega.

No Instagram (nos siga aqui!), você encontra fotos semanais das ruas e cenas da Noruega assim como sugestões de passeios e lugares para visitar #culturasonthego, chamadas de notícias, eventos e projetos da Culturas.

Caso você esteja de olho em notícias e material extra sobre experiências interculturais, o lugar para achar é aqui no blog. 😉 Aqui é o nosso espaco mais informal, que postamos sobre os bastidores da Culturas, eventos e artigos dos nossos colunistas.

Já no nosso novo canal do YouTube, (confira aqui), tem duas propostas diferentes: a primeira é produzir vídeos dos eventos da Culturas e a segunda é o nosso Vlog. A primeira série do nosso Vlog foi lancada nesse mês e se chama Dicas para adaptacão na Noruega, um conteúdo aberto, gratuito e extra. Como o título sugere, a série é focada nos estrangeiros que falam Português e que acabaram de se mudar para a Noruega.

Além de todos esses canais, você pode entrar em contato conosco pelo Facebook (here!) ou mande um e-mail para Vamos manter o contato!
