**This event is aimed at young professionals (<35 y.) who are at the beginning of their careers.**

AmCham Belgium's Young Professionals Committee and akkanto have teamed up to organize a Soft Skills Workshop where you can learn how to use soft skills, develop them and apply them to maximize your future career opportunities!

At a time of rapid change driven by digital disruption, when automation and artificial intelligence are redefining the labor market, 'hard skills' are not sufficient to build a flourishing career. A combination of the right personal, emotional and social skills, or 'soft skills' is equally important. Hard skills will get you an interview, but soft skills will get you the job.

The event will start with a keynote speech of Mr. Boudewijn Arts, Partner at Egon Zehnder. Afterwards, akkanto's team will guide you through interactive workshops focusing on:

  • Digital public affairs: Preparing a public affairs campaign and wondering whether you should include ‘something digital’? Know the possible, the desirable and the dos & don’ts when using digital channels in a broader public affairs campaign.
  • Public speaking and storytelling: In a society characterized by an information overload, our attention has never been more divided. Storytelling can increase your impact and change the way you speak in front of an audience forever.
  • Reputation management: Reputation makes up 81% of the value of a company. Learn the essentials of reputation management, you only have one.

The workshops will be followed by a networking reception, so you can directly put your skills to good use!
