SECRET OF SUCCESS - Interactive follow-up session

Imagine you had your own advisory board!

We are happy to announce a follow-up event of last April Secret of Success. After having carefully listened to the feedback from the audience we will host a new interactive session to discuss further how we - as Hungarian business professionals - can reach success in the Netherlands. You are invited to join us. In April we discussed some interesting dilemmas, in October we propose more interaction in smaller groups to share experiences, best practices and advice. Learning from each other and supporting each other towards success.

Success in business partly depends on communication skills, which we learn throughout our lives. Szilvia van Oijen-Gacsai, digital marketeer and active member of Toastmasters - a leading organization of communication and leadership development - will inspire us in the opening session. Szilvi will share best practices to converse with ease.

Following this talk we invite you to the ‘Board Room’ for an interactive discussion in small groups. With a simple structure and a moderator, in this session we will:

  • Greet each other by using the techniques learnt on “conversing with ease”.
  • Each share an issue or situation for which he or she wants to gain perspective.
  • The group will offer practical advice on how they would handle that situation.

At the end of the session each group will share the most common issues and the perspectives contributed by the group.

In the Board Room you will have the opportunity to set yourself up for success!
