TEDxAmsterdamWomen & Accenture present the second Mentoring Bootcamp!

TEDxAmsterdamWomen - Mentoring Bootcamp

Calling all ambitious, young women who want to reach their highest potential! Are you interested in working within a challenging and innovative environment and do you want to know more about consulting? Then our Mentoring Bootcamp is the perfect event for you!

TEDxAmsterdamWomen once again partnered up with Accenture to create an inspiring and interactive day, that revolves around YOU. The Mentoring Bootcamp focuses on different topics that will help young women, on both a professional and a personal level. Next to that, there will also be a chance to get a first impression of Accenture and be coached by female mentors from Accenture.

Recapping last year

The first edition of the Mentoring Bootcamp took place last year. Michelle van der Wouden, Manager and Women in Technology Network member at Accenture: "We started our partnership in 2017, the Mentoring Bootcamp was part of our mutual goal to empower women. It was a very successful day, where the attendees got tips on how to use their strengths, how to pitch and also got an insight into consulting in general.”

Marian Spier, founder of TEDxAmsterdamWomen thinks the partnership with Accenture is a success: “We created a great program together, where participants received coaching from the Accenture consultants and learned to Talk Like TED. It was very inspiring to see how young women could spend an entire day on focussing on developing themselves. The energy was great. The winners were able to go to the TEDxAmsterdamWomen event, which was a nice reward.”

This year’s Mentoring Bootcamp

On Thursday, November 22, the second Mentoring Bootcamp will take place at Accenture Amsterdam. Together with Accenture, we will open our doors to a new group of young ambitious women to learn more about themselves. “We feel that this partnership truly adds value and we want to broaden and strengthen this in 2018 by creating new connections, actively linking our networks and contributing to our mutual goal of Bridging the Gap. This year, we are a proud Silver Partner of TEDxAmsterdamWomen" Michelle explains.

In 2018, participants will have the opportunity to hear personal stories from leading women that will help them to empower themselves. Marian: “What I like about this year’s edition, is that we focus on what it means to be a consultant. Especially because younger people often have a different perception of what that means. I think it will be an inspiring event where we will spread the core values of TED and will spread ideas.”
