“There’s a lot of people here from all over the world who have given me many insights. They see things you don’t see in your impact plan so it’s good to have this outside vision. I talked about some insecurities I had with my coach and she gave me a lot of advice on that, it makes this a very enriching experience.”


Isabela Alves de Oliveira, TPM Analyst at Heineken, Brazil, 2018 participant

“I see the Challenge as a stepping stone, as a platform, to give me the confidence and the network to enable myself to achieve the impact which I want to create. Everybody needs a nudge, a trigger, an extra push so that they can relate to others who are in the same boat. It’s all about rocking the boat so let’s rock it together.”


Palash Ghadwe, Industrial Designer at Bajaj Electricals, India, 2018 Wild Card participant

“I think that the very important parts of the Challenge are to help me create the connections, to get feedback from coaches, and also to improve my leadership to make my plan come true. And the most important part is to understand how to deliver the best results.” – Nguyễn Thị Cẩm Thu (HEINEKEN, Vietnam)
