7 mirjam “I made a real connect with a diverse group of people, whom I met for the first time. I received valuable advice on a personal dilemma, through a quick feedback session. We exchanged ideas on how to strengthen the ambitionOne concept, and we enjoyed a lecture by Vlerick professor Barney Jordaan on negotiation techniques. And we enjoyed a fantastic diner” Mirjam van Coillie


“AmbitionOne scored a triple E: Energizing Event in Eindhoven!! Starting with ambition sharing opened up genuine conversations quickly, well supported by the icebreaker exercises from Frank Philips from Yes! WeConnect. From young students to experienced professionals, a range of cultures, and a diverse representation of industries and educational institutions the mix was the perfect blend to inspire each other. A great new networking initiative”  Allison Thomas, Supply Chain Director, Customer Services & Logistics Transformation, Europe at PepsiCo
