On 31 May, we organized our last networking event at Life is Beautiful with the committed group who attended the stream of personal development with us. We learned how to make cocktails/mocktails in a relax atmosphere.
Jyrki Haavisto says "The CFA Society Belgium Cocktail Workshop was a perfect finishing touch for the Networking event series. It continued the "seriously fun" spirit of the previous events, combining the deliberate training aspect of these events with a really friendly atmosphere and a fun set of people. Highly recommendable to anyone interested in improving her or his networking skills – or to anyone just interested having good fun and a great discussion with a really nice bunch of people!"
Rik Truijen adds: "By focusing also on soft skills, CFA Society Belgium creates a local investor community based on friendship and common interests."

Our third networking session took place on 22 February. Our two speakers, Françoise Sotiau (Project leader Distributed Generation B2B at Engie Electrabel) and Manuel Menendez Barrero (CEO, Santander Consumer Bank) shared their experience on how networking has helped them in their professional career.
Nele Vleeschouwers, CFA says: "I really enjoyed last night's networking session. The previous 2 sessions in the networking series were mostly about practical tips and implementing them. Last night we took a step back and thought about the importance of networking in our professional lives in a more general way. It was also nice to see the familiar faces of the people that participated in the previous events, making the atmosphere friendly and easygoing"
