In cooperation with UMT – University of Management and Technology, Lahore, Pakistan  – FPBC and NPBS are pleased to present:


NPBS Society Talks for Education!


We talk business to business but we also care about people, education, health-care and all great stuff of a great life!



At the three earlier Summits held in Islamabad, Pakistan we gave the stage for a non-profit organisation supporting the development of Pakistan. Now we expanded also that part and we are pleased to welcome you to NPBS Society Talks 2017. And the whole year of 2017 will be for education![/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”transparent”][vc_separator type=”transparent”][vc_single_image image=”16116″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” qode_css_animation=””][vc_separator type=”transparent”][vc_separator type=”transparent”][vc_separator type=”transparent”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern” css_animation=””][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_separator type=”transparent”][vc_column_text]

Business boosting the society


We talk business to business, bringing the platform where companies can do business. But we also want to support the development of the society and we do believe that the private companies can have a key role with NGOs and Governmental Institutions to boost issues like education and health-care in the Nordic-Pakistan level. At the last three Summits held in 2014-2016 in Pakistan we always gave the stage for a non-profit partner to broadcast their message through the business community and now it’s time to expand also that part supporting the development of society –  It’s time launch the NPBS Society Talks!


The first NPBS Society talks takes place at NPBS venue and 2017 is the year for Education.


Education Export has been one of the hottest topics in this region for some time now. Traditionally the Northern part of Europe has been a leader in terms of quality of education, PISA-research and so on. However, so far many Governments and companies have been trying to find the right approach and right market to actually make professional education export to happen and make the change in a longer run. We decided to support The Change!


We know that Pakistan would probably be the best country for cooperation in education for the whole Nordic region. In Pakistan the educational players – private companies, Governments, NGOs, educational institutions – can make it happen. To make The Change Happen. If you want to join The Change please register yourself below to NPBS Society Talks 2017!


Pakistan has a population of almost 200 million, half of the population is children and youth, the quality and also more unified education would be absolutely the best way to boost and support the development of Pakistan. And that’s why we are giving the stage for the afternoon session of  “NPBS Society Talks for Education”, an event taking together the best sources of education, held parallel to business talks and meetings in the next rooms of the Finlandia Hall in Helsinki.


And we talk about education also during the main event and sure will continue to talk about education at the NPBS 2017 in Lahore, Pakistan on 25 April, 2017. We talk about whole picture from K12 to universities, from professional training to academic cooperation and entrepreneurship.


Dear Educationists and Education Professionals – the Stage is Yours! Welcome!
