The task was not easy. First, we needed to find a storyline that would incorporate our introductions, find something that connected us as Trainees yet also made us stand out from the other trainee batches and align our presentation with the theme of the evening. After a brainstorming session with all the trainees, ideas ranging from runway shows, face swap pictures and favorite beer to car components and business strategies, we decided to go for “vision 0 for trainees”. In this story, each of us would share their own vision 0 resolutions for 2018 (since the year was about to start). We asked each trainee to tie their personal as well as their professional resolutions with something related to “0” or vision zero. When we started to collect all the brilliant trainee resolutions, we could not stop laughing; some resolutions were just so funny: Henry wanted to gain 0 pounds in 2018 while Jens wanted to ride his new road bike with zero emissions and hopefully 0 accidents.
A personal advice, if you ever have the chance to participate in the coordination of this event or to be the speaker, do not hesitate, you will enjoy it!
