Best of both worlds: boost your career and be appreciated while doing it!

Posted By Martijn Stuiver, Chapter and SIG Chair, Vivit Board of Directors, Monday, November 26, 2012
Updated: Monday, November 26, 2012


I am not aware of many programs or career paths in which you are awarded during the journey. Active leadership within the Vivit community will provide you with such an opportunity. Moreover, it boosts your skills in organizing and hosting events and networking, and it boosts your career by carving the way you look for and follow trends and by providing a unique stage that creates visibility for you, your skills and your organization. And sometimes it just drives you into other realms like developing your killer presentation skills.

Over 120 amazing members from around the world have already started this journey with Vivit as leaders of local chapters and worldwide Special Interest Groups (SIGs), speakers, or directors. As it is time for our annual EMEA awards, I am pleased to put the spotlight on a few of our members who have been nominated by fellow members for their outstanding skills and contributions.
