Do you believe in the power of networking? Well, we do and so did many historical figures throughout Vienna’s history. In our one of a kind Greatness through Networking tour, we will explore the power of networks in commerce and innovation in Vienna.
Networking is the be-all and end-all in business today. But networks have always existed in Vienna. Traders supported each other, musicians needed patrons, important decisions were made in the illustrious salons and this still happens in coffee houses today. So how did people meet each other and collaborate? What type of networks existed back then? What can we learn from Vienna’s networking past that can help us improve our own networking efforts?
Book our unique “Greatness through networking” tour to get useful and relevant insights about the power of networks and the people who achieved greatness through strong connections. From brotherhoods and secret societies to unions and modern groups, you will learn how artists and business people alike understood and valued the power of network. Whether you are an entrepreneur living in Vienna or simply a history enthusiast, this tour is for you.
This one of a kind networking tour will surely open the eyes of your team, guests or students. It is perfect for your next team building activity, professional conference, school excursion or private event as it will not only be entertaining but also thought provoking.
What can you expect when booking our Greatness through Networking tour:
On our “In the Footsteps of Greatness” tour series, we aim to dive deeper into history and derive conclusions that can serve as life lessons. Instead of focusing on the “what”, we focus on the “how” and the “why” for a more profound experience.
In our eyes, every historical figure can serve as a mentor if we only walk in their footsteps. It can tell us what to do, how to think as well as what to avoid. For teams, learning from historical figures who forged valuable connections can bring a new and unique perspective. It can show that we have a lot in common with some of Vienna’s greatest personalities. They, like us, needed to cultivated mutually beneficial relationships. They too had to properly sell and promote themselves. Some needed funding and other type of support for their ideas or projects, just like we do today. Naturally, many of them can give much credit to their network as what enabled them to achieve greatness. We are convinced that the added value of this tour will go even beyond our regular, fascinating walking tours in Vienna.
