Young Proffesionals workshop

"The thing I found most valuable
in this workshop is the networking.
It's not just the networking with the
IEC experts and officials but also
the networking amongst Young
Professionals, because you can
exchange ideas and you can
understand other cultures.
Also to get involved with an
institution as important as the IEC
is very valuable for my employer.

Young Proffesionals workshop

"The whole workshop has been
extremely valuable but the
insights into the inner workings of
the IEC really are invaluable.
I don't think that there is any other
scheme that would get you the
insights that the Young
Professionals workshop has given
