It’s your network!
The new Alumni Programme is all about you! You were chosen to attend a Europaeum activity not just because of your academic ability, but also because of your intellectual curiosity and your motivation to achieve. This new commmunity is your space. It is full of people with ambition, determination and creativity. How can you use it to make a difference to your country, Europe, and the world?
Do you have a passion that others can contribute to? Greening the planet? Boosting citizen engagement with democracy? Celebrating the artistry of Greek urns? Improving the legal and financial infrastructure underpinning trade? Whatever your interest, reach out to your fellow alumni. Decamp into a dedicated chat room to share information, brainstorm, come up with new solutions, and work together to implement them.
How about using the network to gain new insights into your business life? Do you find yourself working with the same circle of people, who all do things the same way and share the same goals? Why not reach out to others working in related fields and view the world through their eyes? Organise an after-hours meet-up in a pub or a dinner to make contacts that you would never have encountered elsewhere and see what ideas you can spark.
The network is yours. Make the most of it!
