A MOMENT TO CELEBRATE
This year we have a special reason to celebrate: the Semco Style Institute 5-Year Anniversary! In the past 5 years we’ve made such great progress and experienced tremendous growth in our international community. The emergence of new organizations, inspired by the Semco Style, and the voice of like-minded individuals have kept us on the edge of our seats and pushed us to lead the road toward the workplace of the future. Of course, this would not have been possible without our founders, clients and partners.
We want you to experience this special moment with us, so we are about to launch a great series of events, webinars and interviews with many people of our global network! During the next months, we will look back to precious moments, celebrate successes and listen to personal stories about shaping the future of work. To take it to the next level and really make this a unique celebration, we invite you to join our new interviews, talks and stories. So, dust off your travel kit, hop on the plane and discover inspirations from all over the world with us!
