It has been forever since I last shared anything on the blog. However, now is the time and there is a reason why!
I’ll like to share with you a great event I attended recently. Every year the Junior Achievement – Young Enterprise Alumni is gathering all its national coordinators, for what is known as the National Coordinators meeting, or NCM.
This year’s event was hosted by the Norwegian Alumni in Oslo, Norway and a total of 17 different nations were represented. The purpose of the event was to enrich collaboration across borders and to maintain an international network in-between the national networks. The fact is that collaboration across boarders might be a challenge due to cultural differences. However, many of the challenges faced on a national level is often shared by sister groups in other countries and everyone will actually benefit from sharing these experiences and try and solve the issues together.
A big thanks goes to the Norwegian Team, who put together an inspirational, well organised and all over successful, fun and amazing event. Not just was the choice of lectures, sightseeing, dining and sleep of the highest standards. The logistics of the entire event was also managed to perfection and participants from all over Europe could enjoy Oslo and its beauty to its fullest.
On the 29th of September 2012 I was elected member of the Young Enterprise Alumni Denmark Board.
The YEAD board’s mission is to serve the former Young Enterprise participants, to encourage networking and continuous learning within the field of leadership, entrepreneurship, and innovation.
I was elected as secretary of the board and will primarily be assisting the president and vice-president of the board with administrative jobs.
Furthermore, the board is responsible for a series of events arranged for the members of the organization. Of events can be mentioned the popular Leader for a Day, YEAD Camp, the YEAD Dinner, and international events, such as for instance the annual JA-YE Alumni Conference.
My board position will run for a period of one year, and the board will be re-elected at the next General Assembly.
I participated in Yead Camp 2009, together with a lot of other Young Enterprise Alumni’s.
Yead Camp is a yearly event where Alumni’s from all over Denmark meet for weekend of intensive learning, and social networking. Doing the event there were several speakers, among them were Coach Gert R. Jespersen fromMotivazion, who spoke about how an elite sports man is preparing mentally to win a goal medal. Some Alumni’s also went on stage, and told about their success as entrepreneurs.
The event was a networking success, and I got to know new alumni’s that I am today networking with a lot.
