Friisbergs Lithuanian and Belarusian Partners Headline at a Nordic Business
Friisberg’s Lithuanian and Belarusian Partners Headline at a Nordic Business
On 25-26 May 2012, the Lithuanian Partner of Friisberg & Partners International, Nijole
Kelpsaite, took part in a business summit in Belarus, organized jointly by the European
HumanityUniversity (a Belarusian University) and The Nordic Chambers of Commerce in
Lithuania. The delegates attending comprised members of the Danish, Swedish, Norwegian
and Finnish Chambers of Commerce, representatives of furniture manufacturing, logistics,
insurance and leasing companies, including Storebrand and SEB Leasing. Delegates were
offered visits to various businesses in Belarus, such as a local brewery Lidskoe Pivo, an Olvi
Group Company, Belarus High-Tech Park, amongst others.
Kelpsaite introduced delegates to “Zdes i Sejchas” the Belarusian firm of Friisberg & Partners
International, represented by Olga Nadtochaeva, the firm’s Head of Recruitment, who with
the assistance of her Lithuanian colleagues, made a presentation to delegates containing
useful information about the Belarusian market and its commercial opportunities. She also
shared some practical advice along with her experiences and insights gained as an Executive
Search Consultant in the region. Her presentation was subsequently distributed to all
members of the Nordic Chambers of Commerce in Lithuania.
Nadtochaeva and Kelpsaite expect this event and their participation in it to have been an
excellent boost to the profile and reputation of Friisberg & Partners International in Belarus in
particular and the Nordic and Eastern European Executive Search markets in general, where
Friisberg is already very well represented and continuing to grow.
