“Mastering Leadership for the Future – Program kick-off”


We were thrilled to kick off the Swedish Chamber and Young Professionals Mentorship Program 2024 last week, together with the nine skilled Mentorship Program pairs joining the journey! The event started with an introduction by Mentorship Coach Hendrik Jan Guitink, leading the way with insightful guidelines. Mentees and Mentors were then divided into breakout sessions to map out personal goals and expectations, guided by former Mentee and YP Committee Member Malin Petrocchi, as well as Hendrik Jan. This was followed by the big reveal of Mentor-Mentee matches, after which the pairs had their first one-on-one chats to kickstart their mentoring journey.


Looking ahead, we are extending an open invitation to the Mentorship keynote lectures to all YP members, and welcome you to join these inspirational presentations and discussions. Seating is limited, so secure your spot today! Here’s a glimpse of what’s to come:
📅 April 18: Leadership with Niels Thijssen, Professional Leadership Coach and Facilitator
📅 May 14: Mindfulness and Work-Life Balance with Kristina Zumpolle, Founder, Executive Coach, Facilitator, Keynote Speaker, and Jasmijn de Smit, Executive Coach, Facilitator
