The network Worldcom has specific programs focused on our young workers, managed by the Worldcom Future Generation Group, giving them an opportunity to exchange experiences and lead initiatives related to 2.0 in their respective agencies. One of the most successful programs is the exchange program between agencies. In this way, the young don’t only receive additional information about communication, they also get to live immersed in other culture helping to expand their international character.
Recently, Eszter Szalkai from the Hungarian agency PROBAKO has visited and worked in HBI, German agency based in Munich. Eszter describes her stay in this way:
Thanks to the Worldcom Exchange Program I had the opportunity to work together with this fantastic team for two weeks in Munich. I arrived from the Budapest-based agency Probako Communications. This was the first time my agency took part in the staff exchange program, but I have received so much from this opportunity that I am sure we will continue participating.
The program is not only useful for learning from foreign PR specialists, getting an insight into the media landscape they are working in and exchanging ideas with them, but it is also a good opportunity for building a stronger connection with other member agencies.
I can warmly recommend you as well to participate in this program, because it is such a great opportunity for your young PR specialists from which they can profit a lot in the future.
Since the easiest way we can learn from each other is to work together.
I hope one day we can serve as a host for your colleagues. J
