“After sickness led me to lose my job, I thought I had no future. Airbnb Experience helped me to escape from my bad thoughts by providing guidance towards new success.” Debora Maria Lanini from Italy was one of five female entrepreneurs from the Airbnb community invited to share their story at “Boosting female entrepreneurship in Europe”. Taking place in Brussels, the event marked the beginning of a new partnership between Women Entrepreneurs Platform (WEP) and Airbnb. Sharing resources and best practices, they will be organising workshops across Europe in the coming months.
The event was hosted by Claudia Tapardel MEP, who stated that European institutions should do more to encourage female entrepreneurship. “Beyond the moral support, we need concrete instruments, such as financial aid or training, to support women who want to develop a career in business.”
The dialogue, facilitated by logos, was a success for both the audience and the organisers. Pooja Tanna, Airbnb Senior Global Experiences Manager, and Cheryl Miller, WEP board member and founder of the Digital Leadership Institute, highlighted the importance of this new partnership aiming to support female entrepreneurs.
On 3-4 April 2019, logos brought together in its offices 30 members of AVEC, the European association representing poultry producers across the Union. The aims were to review the strengths and weaknesses of AVEC’s reputation and agree on ways to boost its impact on policymakers and external stakeholders. logos first presented various options for AVEC’s communication strategy. It then used consensus building techniques to bring lead the diversified AVEC membership to agree on clear action items for the coming months.
Combined with our technical expertise and political savvy, our consensus building techniques help organisations to clarify their objectives and streamline their day-to-day operations. We hope that AVEC will be able to make the most of the upcoming new political context in the European Union.
On 21 February 2019, logos held a workshop in partnership with Euractiv on EU technical regulations, standards and innovation funding. Presented by Thomas Linget, senior account manager and highly qualified expert on transport policies, the workshop highlighted how to build a strong advocacy strategy when dealing with highly technical issues, to overcome the hurdles and win your case.
