Heidi Liedberg, former Chairman YP Committee
”I especially appreciate the Dutch YP because it has many flavors to it, it is like a Swedish type of smorgasbord where you can pick and choose your favorites. The combination of social activities and business activities makes it dynamic and fun. No event is similar to another, some are only for fun, some for self-development and some for specific business purposes. If you are up for it you can extend your network but it is also fine to just mingle on some occasions. Being a member of YP gives me the possibility to join happenings like I else would not have been able to join or even knew I wanted to join; the invites to the well-organized events are is something I very much appreciate.”This is not a club exclusively for Swedish nationals working for a Swedish company. For example, you can be a Swede working for an international company in the Netherlands, or Dutch working for a Swedish company. What’s important is that you share the interest in Swedish or Dutch business. You are eligible to be a YP member until the age of 36.”
