Brussels is an incredible place, full of opportunities, but each sector is also saturated with competition. Spending more than 15 years in the capital of Europe, I sought to guide those who are interested in tackling the a-typical market of EU Affairs.
For more than 5 years I teach students about Euro-Brussels, and last year I launched a training programme about finding a job around the ‘Schuman square’.
Some days ago I launched a new offer, in cooperation with Maria Laptev – especially aimed for those people who want to set up their business in Brussels. Symbolically titled “How to make money in EU Affairs in Brussels?” the training tries to teach the entrepreneurs, as well as the intrapreneurs, how to choose the best way to succeed. Maria knows Brussels and the private sector of EU Affairs better than most experts and it’s not by chance that she’s now the Executive Director of the European Centre for Public Affairs (ECPA). I still remember with pleasure working together 4 years ago, giving lectures to MBA students of the United Business Institutes (UBI), and I hope to succeed in this new project.
I hope that this new initiative – a training about ‘EU actors’ and the consultancy services they need - will be welcomed by the public. We are looking forward to the first training on 25 October 2012.
