On February 25th, 2021 we celebrated the closing event for the EWoB Digital Strategy Mentoring Program 2020. It was one year ago when mentors and mentees from around Europe came to Prague to meet for the first time at our launch event.
EWoB Cross-border Digital mentoring program, the first of its kind in Europe, proved to be very successful. These are the quotes of our mentors and mentees:
Aija Bärlund, Finland
MENTEE ? FOUNDING PARTNER ? DEVE PARTNERS ? BOARDMAN PARTNER
“One of the key learnings from my mentor is how important it is to make sure that a company culture is positive towards the change. Make it a dream to the organization, where everyone is engaged and excited about the change.”
Lucia Predolin, Italy
MENTOR ? SALES DIRECTOR ? DIGITAL MARKETING
“A truly reciprocally rewarding journey.”
MENTOR ? DIRECTOR ? DELOITTE BELGIUM “A very inspiring experience as such. I believe the focus of the mentoring pair should be on both, soft and technical skills. Perhaps even more on the soft side, as that is very hard to learn from books…”
Marie Just, Germany
MENTEE ? SENIOR BRAND MANAGER ? iq DIGITAL MEDIA MARKETING GMBH
“A great source of knowledge and inspiration for me.”
Saskia van Uffelen, Belgium
MENTOR ? CORPORATE VICE PRESIDENT BENELUX INETUM ? DIGITAL CHAMPION
“Our society is changing and crying out for new models. We need to dare build a different business world. Dare to reshuffle funding and allocate money in a different way. We need a new long term approach at all levels: commercial, leadership and focus on values and attitude. The program is designed to leverage the talents in order to make all of this happen.”
Our keynote speaker, Saskia Van Uffelen, gave an inspiring talk on the digital age sharing her experience and life examples. Read more in Saskia’s new book Dare for Tomorrow.
Thanks to all the mentors and mentees in the program for their participation over the past year and we look forward to staying connected through the EWoB network!
