Here’s a quick look back at what our team has been doing for you the past year.
We’re glad to see that so many companies are continuously growing and scaling their business. From attending a session with our experts to coming along with us across borders, our community of entrepreneurs have been improving their skills and been extending their network to the max. Cheers to 1375 event attendees, 463 Expert Sessions, 7 In The Spotlight talks, 33 Workshops, 7 Bootcamps, 3 Launchpad Meetups, 2 Go Global Missions, the Firestarter Hackathon and tons of Pitch Events!
Internally, within EY, we’ve also been busy working on enabling innovation. A lot of bright ideas have found a way to EY Belgium’s leadership with the means to improve EY’s business flow. If you’re one of our EY colleagues, you’ll probably have seen the astronaut passing by in our offices or even attended one of our internal trainings in Design Thinking, Agile or Business Modelling. We’re excited to see how a mindset of innovation and change is eagerly growing inside our very own firm, EY.
Lastly, we’re so grateful for our 11 (!) new crew members in 2019, and are extremely proud of our EYnovation team winning the Global EY Better Begins With You Award for exceptional client service.
We hope to see you all again and look forward to welcome new members in the upcoming, promising year (and decade). From all of us at The Factory: have a wonderful, happy, 2020!
