Benefits During Your Journey
Benefits During Your Journey
Tell us what you encounter during your I WILL Journey! From November 2021 until March 2022 we will feature your Journey stories on our social media channels – we will have reporters looking out for the most interesting, unusual or inspiring examples. This is your opportunity to get your message out and reach more people in the wider RSM community.
Do you want to be featured with your I WILL and your Journey? Sign up here and we will be in touch!
Creating a good pitch will help you make your ambition and goals clearer to yourself – and it makes it easier to know how to ask for help and resources. We will have 50 places on an online pitch training session hosted by Pitch Academy to give away to people who convince us on why a pitch training would benefit their Journey. The training session is run by one of our own I WILL Get in the Ring winners Thom Uildriks. He became a Dutch champion in pitching, and is now training students and executives from all kinds of organisations in pitching.
Do you think you deserve one of these places because you are serious about your I WILL Journey? Do you think pitch training will help you in achieving your I WILL?
Sign-up here and we will be in touch. We’ll choose the 50 applications with the best motivations to win a seat in the pitch training session. If you’re one of them, you will be contacted before 15 February 2022 with details about joining our online pitch training.
