• DIGITALEUROPE sets out for team building and study trip in Bulgaria

    2 November 2017As part of our EU Presidency outreach and team building activities, the whole DIGITALEUROPE’s team travelled to Sofia, Bulgaria, on 26 and 27 October.

    On 26 October, our staff actively engaged in a variety of professional activities including high-level and technicalmeetings with the Bulgarian Presidency and ministries. A group of colleagues also participated in the digital unconference 1.0 in Sofia, where Commissioner Gabriel engaged with the participants and presented her key priorities as Commissioner for the Digital Society and Economy. We concluded the day with a traditional Bulgarian dinner in the outskirts of Sofia. 

    On 27 October, the whole DIGITALEUROPE gathered for team building activities at the Microsoft Innovation Center in Sofia, Bulgaria session. We collectively assessed our individual personality patterns and strengths, and we reflected on how to work smoothly and efficiently as a team. We were then honoured to welcome Commissioner Gabriel to the part of our team building session focusing on policy. We introduce ourselves to the Commissioner and took a family picture.

    Later during the day, our team met with Mr. Ivaylo Penchev, CEO of Walltopia - the world’s top manufacturer of indoor walls for climbing - and of Auxionize.com, a leading online platform for tendering markets and for finding contractors and suppliers. Our team building came to an end with a session of wall climbing at Walltopia…  where we discovered we had the resources to push back our limits and to perform at the highest levels! 😊
