Council Meeting Austria
After a few days of partying during the pre-CM we took the bus to the real event: The ESTIEM Council Meeting. The first night I was really surprised by the amount of people that participated in this event. Because of the fact that there were less than 300 ESTIEMers I mostly spend my first night talking to everyone I already knew from my few previous events. After a great party I had to get up early the first morning…
Financial and Legal Committee Coordination Meeting
On the 16th of October I went to Tallinn, Estonia, to join the fellow committee members, including Stijn Zanders, of the Financial and Legal Committee. The event was a meeting of some of the persons who are involved in the Financial and Legal committee of ESTIEM and other persons with interest in Finance and Legal. It is always good to meet the people you work with in real life, because working together is more efficient and nice than only talking on Skype of course.
Late Night Whistling
Everyone met at Siegen, myself a little (too) early because I know how iffy public transport can be, and made our way to Trainingwarts; The first 4 days were spent in a large cottage in the mountains, more than an hour away from Siegen and technology. Have some time to wander around, look at the village, be back in time for the first training that afternoon.
Summer Entrepreneurship Training
This summer I most likely experienced the best ESTIEM event of my life. During three weeks I traveled together with 15 other participants from Istanbul to Warsaw to Madrid, to learn everything I need to know to someday be able to start up my own business.
Servus! I have always wanted to go to the Oktoberfest, the world’s biggest beer festival, and this year I had the chance to go with ESTIEM. The Bavarian festival has been held since 1810 and yearly more than 6 million people are consuming 7.7 million litres of beer and 500.000 roasted chickens.
