New Trainee at the FBCC

The FBCC welcomes a new addition to the team for the Spring 2019 period. Please welcome Erika!

Erika just finished her Bachelor’s Degree in International Business from the University of Turku before flying off to London in January.  She wrote her Thesis on the internationalisation of Finnish design to China and spent last Spring as an exchange student in Hong Kong. Erika has always enjoyed an international environment and is very excited to attend all the events and meet our members. Her goal is to learn more about Finnish businesses networking in the UK and develop as a young professional. Interning here at FBCC will help Erika form a business network as well as tangible skills needed for her career in International Business.

See you all at the many upcoming events we are having this Spring!

Final greetings from Mirjam

Christmas is approaching, which is a sign of changes in the FBCC team – it’s my time to leave London behind and take on new challenges! Before I leave, I would like to look back and share some of my experiences while working in the FBCC.

I can’t believe it has just been four and a half months since I started working at the FBCC! This Fall has been full of insightful events, inspiring people and new things to learn. Despite the busy season, I’ve gained so many new experiences and learned about life in London.

One of the most interesting factors of the season has been the infamous and complex Brexit process, which continues to spark emotions in most people I have met. It has been surprising and inspiring to see the optimism many companies and business people have in the future. For example, it was interesting to attend an event exploring opportunities in the Commonwealth after Brexit, organised by the Council of British Chambers of Commerce in Europe. Another exciting event I will remember was a seminar discussing Artificial Intelligence the at the Residence of the Ambassador of Finland. Listening to the insights of high-level experts such as Risto Siilasmaa and Pekka Ala-Pietilä was definitely a unique experience I value.

I couldn’t be more thankful for all the opportunities this placement has offered me and I’m sure I’ve learned more than I even realize. Most importantly, having the possibility to meet and work together with various people from a variety of backgrounds has helped me to deepen my understanding of the international business environment in London.

I’d like to thank all the wonderful people I’ve had the chance to meet, not to forget the FBCC team for always providing me support and giving me the opportunity to develop my skills as a young professional. It’s absolutely an experience I will cherish.

For now I’m going back home to finish my Bachelor’s studies and take on new exciting challenges in the future. Hopefully I will see you again soon in London!
