    Within the framework of the Professional Networking Service, Bizkaia Talent organises thematic working days whose aim is to bring together Basque organisations with highly qualified professionals who work in strategic sectors for the Basque Country.

    At the BBTC you will discover several different spaces to extend your network of contacts but if what you are looking for is to organize a brief conversation with a representative of one of the Basque organisations which are taking part in the event, this is the correct place for you.

    These are 15-minute slots designed for you to be able to establish a more personal initial face-to-face contact with these organisations with which in most cases you will share a common interest. It is important to underline that these meetings are not job interviews.

    Bear in mind that the Contact Building slot could be a starting point for the exploration of not only collaborative work, but also company-related, or any other type of collaboration.

    Is there any reference material that I could consult to get to know more about the work field in the Basque Country?+

    You will find a list of reports that we at Bizkaia Talent consider could be useful to you with a view to gaining a better understanding of the scientific-technological and industrial reality of the Basque Country, and the challenges to be faced in the future. To download them, click here.

    Bizkaia Talent app, amongst other functions, will provide you access to your personal agenda of the BBTC. You can download the app both for Android and iOS devices.


    Company presentations and the Open Discussion Forum+

    Company presentations and a plenary open debate will shape the first part of the conference.

    In order for you to maximise your performance and take full advantage of the event, we encourage you to participate actively in the presentations, expressing all of your anxieties and asking the representatives of the participating companies any questions you like.

    Networking lunch+

    The main aim of the working day is to carry out networking and we want you to take full advantage of every possible opportunity to do this. Therefore, and with a view to extending your network of contacts, we will assign you with a particular table for lunch.

    The tables are not arranged at random. The seating plan has been designed to facilitate contacts with professionals who are participating in other areas of the event.

    Contact building+

    After the networking lunch, some participants will have an opportunity to meet the representatives of the organisations on a one-to-one basis during a round of previously arranged personal meetings agreed by both sides.

    If you have arranged a personal conversation, this means that you will have 15 minutes to get to know the representatives of the organisations in person and make initial contact with them.

    You do not need to bring business cards with you. The organisations are already in possession of your CV and contact details and are able to manage any contact that you make with them via the Bizkaia Talent App. We will now detail certain points that could be helpful with a view to building up a network of professional contacts to generate future business:

    Remember that the conversations do not have to be focused on work. The slot can be a starting point to begin to explore possibilities for a working collaboration, but also company collaborations or any other kind of cooperation.

    • Be clear about what you are offering at a personal or company level (if you are looking for opportunities with Basque companies in your sector).
    • Decide in advance what your objectives are for the event.
    • Think about how you wish to present yourself and prepare a brief but concise presentation message.
    • Take note of all the professionals and organisations that interest you in the course of the BBTC. This will help you to follow-up your contacts efficiently.


    Thematic workshops will take place during the BBTC. To participate in these, it is necessary to have registered in advance and that Bizkaia Talent has authorised your participation. You can consult the content of the workshops here.

    After the event+

    The BBTC aims to be a starting point for making professional links between the numerous individuals who are participating in the event. In order to deepen the network of contacts that you have built up within the framework of the BBTC it is essential to maintain and continue working on the contacts that you have made with a wide range of individuals a the BBTC event, for example by means of the Bizkaia Talent App or the Be Basque Talent Network of which you now form a part.

    Both the participating organisations and the other professionals will be delighted to continue exploring new opportunities for future collaboration.
