The Swedish Chamber of Commerce Women Business Leadership Program is tailormade to personal needs and will help you identify the obstacles to your success, as well as guide you towards becoming the best version of yourself – both as a leader and in your private life. Despite being successful in their roles and producing positive results, many business leaders and professionals experience a lack of confidence, low energy levels, stress, and fatigue. They often feel as though they are not being heard and are unsure of themselves and where they are heading. Many leaders feel both physically and mentally drained because they do not take care of their bodies and mind.

 

With the Swedish Chamber of Commerce Women Business Leadership Program 2022, we offer 3 Masterclasses this fall with 3 different topics to find your leadership identity, empower yourself to be fit to lead, and learn to use your network. Sign up for all 3 Masterclasses  and receive 25% reduction on the total participation fee or sign up individually for the event that you are interested in attending. You will be working towards your personal goals and developing your leadership skills and you can get a better idea of what changes you need to make to live your best life. All programs include coaching by Malin Hedlund who will give you the theoretical background information you need, provide practical exercises, facilitate teamwork and individual tasks, and exercises to practice in your environment until the next session. At each session, you will also meet an inspirational speaker or role model with a close connection to the topic.

 

This event is part of the Swedish Chamber Women Business Leadership Program 2022.

Coach: Malin Hedlund, MH Leadership

How to present your ideas and get your team to listen? What about negotiating your salary or growing within your company?  Negotiation skills are tricky and ask for confidence and self-empowerment. In this event you will learn how to present your ideas, acknowledge your value and negotiate your salary with confidence. Engagement, drive, and determination are vital elements and there will be many tips and exercises to help you to reach your goals.

 

TESTIMONY:

“Participating in the Women Business Leadership program, provided by Malin via the Swedish Chamber, has been a great help in my daily life, both private and business-wise! It has provided me with tips & tricks to be better aware of why I do things the way you do them, and if needed how I might be able to change/improve. The term “ant-steps” is one that often comes to my mind. I really recommend you to join a session!

If you are not able to do all four, one is more than not at all! But I’m sure if you go for one you will most likely want to join all sessions. I always leave these sessions with such a positive boosted feeling.”

FUTURE-PROOF FOOD SYSTEMS 

What does a food system that is fit for the future look like? What do we need to create it? What do we already have in place?

The food system is incredibly complex as it spans through different resources and across the globe. We need a complete overhaul of the system to be able to feed 10 billion people with nutritious food by 2050. In #NordicTalks on September 22, 2022, we will meet up live at The Amsterdamse Proeflokaal to follow up on the insights and takeaways from #NordicTalks digital Food for Good event in February 2022.

 

At #NordicTalk Food for Good on September 22, 2022, we bring together business leaders, entrepreneurs, politicians, and academics from the Nordic countries and from the Netherlands to address how we can contribute to the sustainable and healthy transformation of our global food systems. This will include insights on changes in nutrition sources, urban ecosystems, and local farming to shorten the supply chains and technology – all to ensure food security and resilience in times of climate change, economic decline, and war conflict in Europe.

 

Stay tuned for more details on the 2022 edition of the #NordicTalks Food for Good session on September 22, 2022.

EUROPEAN REGION OF GASTRONOMY

The European Region of Gastronomy is by no means a tribute solely to Michelin-starred restaurants, white tablecloths and tall glasses – although this is part of the overall picture. The European Region of Gastronomy is rather a tribute to local food and local specialties. It’s a tribute to a region that takes local food production seriously throughout the entire value chain. It’s a tribute to the farmers, fishermen and breeders who conjure up the most delicious produce with tender love and care in every nook and cranny of Trøndelag for the Trøndelag chefs’ society, which knows how to utilise world-class local produce in their work.

 

Speakers to be confirmed

 

Golden tips for consumers from #NordicTalk Food for Good Februrary 2022:

  • Be your own gardener – see what you can grow on your own to realize what is the effort behind the whole process and also the value of the food once you put your energy into it 
  • Sniff, Look and Taste before you throw away food just because based on the label it is expired 
  • Support your local producers
  • Educate yourself of what are you eating, read what are the ingredients and nutritions of your choices. Choose smart! And explore new foods from time to time, keeping your mind open 
  • ENJOY – on your own, with family and friends – because food is such a big part of a culture and a way to express emotions

 

Save the Date for #NordicTalks Food for Good on September 22, 2022, and sign up already today!

About Hendrik Jan Guitink, Managing Partner of AIMS International Netherlands B.V. , member of AIMS International, a global leader in Executive Search and Leadership Consulting

“My name is Hendrik Jan Guitink, I am the Managing Partner of AIMS International Netherlands B.V., member of AIMS International, a global leader in Executive Search and Leadership Consulting with offices in over 50 countries. We Find&Grow Your Leaders. Within our Talent Management Practice, coaching and mentoring are two aspects that we specialize in as part of Leadership Development Programs or for individual cases. Having been a Mentor within this program for the past 2 years and being a professional business coach and trainer, I am very excited to take on the challenge. As Mentor, I have had the privilege to partner with 2 very bright and ambitious young professionals. I think I can say that both the mentees and I learned a lot from each other.

I am married to a Swedish beauty and also have a very strong business relationship with our AIMS partner in Sweden, delivering our services to our mutual clients.  Hence the membership of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce.

The ambition of the Mentorship Program is to give young professionals the opportunity to connect with a senior business executive outside of his or her direct environment. Giving the participants access to guidance in issues concerning their future careers.

As a group, we will work on specific topics such as culture and building trusted relationships and we will invite subject matter experts to come and talk to us. The Mentees and Mentors will also spend time together on subjects of their own choice.”

Hendrik Jan Guitink

 

 

The Mentorship Program is made possible by the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with AIMS International Netherlands B.V. , member of AIMS International.
