Young Leaders – Inspiring Mentors (YL-IM)
In 2010 I created the ’Young Leaders-Inspiring Mentors’ program.
The seventh edition of the program was launched Feb 23rd of this year.
Each year a group of fifteen young ambitious leaders and entrepreneurs from different organizations and parts of the country are selected by our committee to form a duo with one of the fifteen renowned and respected (Belgian) leaders of that year’s edition that were invited to join the program. These leaders, who almost instantly agree to participate and support the program, come from the private, the public, the political and the cultural world. We try to have a good mix and sufficient diversity of person(alitie)s and select these leaders for being a reference in their respective areas.
The purpose of ’Young Leaders-Inspiring Mentors’ is to further spread the awareness and direct impact of mentoring in Belgium (and abroad), to let fifteen duos learn from each other and to give the chance to fifteen well selected ’high potential’ young leaders to take advantage of the wisdom and insights from their respective mentor, allowing them to go through an accelerated learning curve.
We also bring them in contact with the insights, ways of doing and personal experiences of other leaders and entrepreneurs.
We organize press moments and interviews to create visibility for the program and the participating duos.
Hereafter you’ll find
