At the time of writing, I am in Fukuoka, contemplating how different my life has become over the past year! I am here as a representative for the UK at the G20 Young Entrepreneurs Alliance Summit 2019. The G20YEA is a global network of professionals coming together to share best practice and to meet like minded individiuals from across the world. You can find out more about it here. http://www.g20yea.com/
I was approached to become a representative at this event through the IoD 99, https://www.iod.com/membership/iod-99 and this has really has opened my eyes to how powerful your personality is as a business tool.
Ask yourself, when was the last time you really engaged with your network? Not just for your company or organisational gain, but to better gain insight for you and your development? #networkdevelopment
Had I not pushed myself to join the IoD I would not be in this situation now. You never know where opportunity might take you, or how you could benefit.
I will be sharing my trip through Instagram and through further posts on this blog, so please continue to watch this space. Other IoD 99 members, such as Alex Mitchell, are also blogging, https://alexdemitchell.com/2019/05/13/uk-delegation-g20-entrepreneurs-summit-2019-japan/ why not follow them too.
