Here comes Summer…..

Dear PWN members and community,

Here comes Summer and I hope with it a time of relaxation and reflection on your successes, as well as inspiration for new ambitions for the future. Reflecting on my first few months as PWN Global President, I can only feel extremely proud of how our teams of volunteers across the globe are making a difference to the lives of professional women. The events that are being organized in the different City Networks are going from great to even greater and it is truly inspiring to hear about City Network events like the Paris Best Of! 2015 (see below), the Oslo Innovation Week, the Amsterdam Deloitte Women’s Executive Program and many more. Based on our successes, we are finding that other cities are looking to become part of the PWN global network and share similar successes of networking and professional growth with their local professional women.

I also feel very excited that shortly after Summer we will have our PWN Global 21st Leadership Forum in Madrid. Please read more about the event in September below and make sure to get your seat by registering as soon as possible, as tickets are selling fast. It is the first time in 4 years that we are organizing a global event, allowing us to connect you with like-minded men and women from across the globe. At the event, we will formally launch our Executive Forum, an exclusive group of accomplished professionals at the executive level. By becoming a member of the Executive Forum you make an investment in your future and your career. Our goal is to support you to become more visible and have easier access to international professional development opportunities, so make sure to become part of it.

There is a lot of energy in the network and I could write endlessly about the positive contributions coming from the Global Board to those from each and every City Network. In reflecting on the past months, I would mostly like to thank our Presidents (see below) and other Board members who have recently passed on the baton for their strong leadership. I know your commitment to the network has always been heartfelt and that your investment in the network made the difference. At the same time I would like to welcome all the new leaders. I am excited that we have a lot of new blood in our leadership team and I am sure that they will help to raise the bar even further. The ambitions for the future are inspiring and I look forward to seeing you on our journey ahead.

Please stay connected and have a wonderful Summer.

Warmest regards,
