Goodbye from FBCC 2021 Spring Trainee Jonna

As spring has come to an end and summer is here, it’s also time for me to bid farewell to FBCC after a few lovely months together. Since January, I’ve interned as the Marketing and Content Coordinator at FBCC, which entails creating content and the visual materials for all social media channels, crafting the monthly newsletter, helping to organise events (online, until now) and helping Jade out with any and everything related to the chamber’s activities. As most of you know, in normal circumstances, trainees travel to London and spend their time organising live events and meeting members face-to-face, which is why it’s safe to say that this internship was quite different as I spent the entire time working from my home first in Helsinki and now Espoo. However, I’m happy to say that this internship has been wonderful, and I’ve been able to develop my professional skills and get a better grip of what I’d like to work with in the future.

I scrolled down a few months to refresh my memory of the goals I set for the internship in the beginning, which included learning more about online event management and digital marketing. I’m happy to say that this internship has brought along essential skills related to these goals as I got to see many online events come to life and had the chance to dive into marketing. One of the highlights for me has been creating the visual materials for the events!

I’d like to express my warmest thanks to Jade for giving me the chance to do this internship; it has been a pleasure to work with her during her first year as General Manager at FBCC. Although the circumstances have been exceptional, we were lucky to get to meet each other in Helsinki in January and have been able to co-operate actively via online platforms. I’d also like to thank all of the lovely members I’ve met during the online events and meetings! I especially enjoyed all Member Series interviews to find out more about FBCC’s Member Companies and the people behind the successful businesses.

I’m eagerly anticipating when it’s responsible to travel, which is when I’ll definitely fly to London to participate in a Nordic Drinks or other event to see the chamber in full action and get the opportunity to meet some members face-to-face! However, until then, I’ll continue to new challenges and start my second and last year of master’s studies at Aalto-University in the autumn.

I wish the members and friends of FBCC a relaxed and sunny summer and can’t wait to see what the upcoming trainees will accomplish when they begin their journeys.
