Norway International Network has been a great place to meet new people, exchange ideas and get to know Oslo and surrounding areas.
I first learned about NIN via its Christmas Party or julebord in 2014 and became a member at that time.
Here are the main four reasons I feel joining NIN has been a great decision. At first I was new to Oslo but as time goes by, the fourth reason is also a good point of consideration.
1. We are new Oslo and surroundings and want to learn more about Oslo.
2. We don’t know a lot of people here and want to meet others.
3. We are interested in networking professionally and expanding our social contacts.
4. We want to share Oslo with others as we learn more about the city and surroundings and have contact with new arrivals.
One of my MBA classmates from BI Norwegian Business School, Ashish Sahu, helped found NIN. Ashish invited me to attend the Christmas Party, or julebord in 2014. I joined up that very evening.
It was fun to be greeted with cupcakes and to have the chance to buy raffle tickets for prizes that were given away later during the evening.
As the months went by, I felt that NIN was great because it helped me expand my network professionally and socially. I didn’t know a lot of people in Oslo prior to joining NIN.
