Ever had a buddy in real live? Make the most out of your membership - get to know our buddy program and find your career buddy at the HBA.
On 10 February 2020, HBA Berlin had a great event for HBA members to start the buddy program. We met in a very creative place, at the agency “Happy Thinking People” in Berlin. The event was hosted very friendly by Iris Korsten.
The idea behind the offered buddy program is to find a perfect match to your personal needs to foster and promote the professional development, your personal skills and enhance your growth in a specific area or a specific project.
We were in total 16 women and we started our get together with a nice speed dating (two minutes each) and we landed very fast in deep conversations and learned quickly about the strength, areas of expertise and interests everybody brings with.
It was surprisingly positive that in such a short time you have found someone who can help you and can pass on your own knowledge or support. Many buddy teams have found each other in such a short time. In addition, we found again the opportunity to learn a lot and importantly to learn more about yourself and only in a two-minute conversation - elevator pitch - in a different way.
This was again a great possibility to expand our network and the opportunity to enhance the own motivation and moreover to offer and especially, to receive advice and guidance in a creative and highly positive motivated environment.
