Sylvie Bussers, one of our scholarship winners, reflects on her Eurocomm 2009 experience…
I truly enjoyed this year’s EuroComm Conference. I lost my job recently, and what we are told during the outplacement programme is how important networking is. This was my objective when I applied for a scholarship. I can now say that my objective was met!
I was amazed at how supportive this network can be, with people making spontaneous offers to help me. I also learnt a great deal from inspiring speakers. What I took away was the shift in the skills that will be required from communicators in the future. This realisation couldn’t come at at a better moment for me. I certainly went home with lots of new contacts, new ideas and food for thought!
Thanks again for awarding me for this scholarship!
