My time at the FBCC has come to an end and I thought I’d like to share some of my thoughts with all of you. I cannot believe how fast these past six months have gone by and it is already time for me to leave. However, I’ve decided to stay in London and continue working on my bachelor’s thesis and the search of my dream job.
My goals in the beginning were to learn more about marketing and event organizing, and to build my own business network. Honestly, I feel like I’ve achieved so much more than that. This traineeship has truly been life changing. I’ve not just acquired a broad experience from various responsibilities, but I’ve also found more direction to my future career.
Working as a part of a small team has probably been one of the greatest benefits, as it has enabled me to learn so much in such a short time frame. For instance, I’ve gained valuable experience from digital marketing, event organizing and bookkeeping and learnt how to use various software. However, what I find the most valuable, has been the opportunity to build my own business network throughout the Finnish-British and Nordic business communities.
I’d like to express my warmest thanks to everyone, members and friends, who have been part of my journey here, it has been an absolute pleasure to work together with you and I hope I’ll continue seeing you in the FBCC events in the future as well.
For 2020, I am more than excited to see where the FBCC will go, and I’m sure the team will continue doing exciting things and delivering high-quality events for the FBCC membership with the new trainees starting after me.
Finally, I’d like to thank my manager Emma and my previous colleague Maria. My experience of moving to London, starting a new job and adapting to the life here would not have been the same without you. I’m so happy that we’ve not only worked closely together, but also become lifelong friends. I hope we’ll stay in touch and celebrate each other’s birthdays in the future too!
If you’d like to keep in touch, please connect with me on LinkedIn and feel free to leave a message.
It is not a goodbye, it is see you soon!
