Recently, our international junior coaches had the chance to spend a day together in Frankfurt, both in-person and virtually. Throughout the day, our juniors learned all about the Impact Week and, most importantly, our mission:
“We foster innovation & entrepreneurship as well as intercultural & intercompany exchange through design thinking.”
In addition to this, and several team-bonding activities, we also had the chance to find out a little bit more about the country and city which we’ll all be visiting in just a few short weeks!
What are our international junior coaches most excited about? Here’s what they said…
“Connecting people and cultures is part of Lufthansa’s purpose and I see a big chance in the concept of Impact Week to bring this statement to life! I am really looking forward to work together in an international team with different backgrounds where management levels and hierarchy do not count. Also as I am working for help alliance, I am excited that we closely connect the Impact week to our youth education project in Ghana.” - Victoria Cyrus (help alliance)
“I am very excited to work with motivated young people from a different country with a different culture and a different mind-set and trying to enable them to have a great and a successful future.” - Ralf Kastens (Lufthansa Technik)
“I am very excited to participate in the Ghana Impact Week because it combines social and business aspects. I will be trained as a Design Thinking Coach in the 1st step and afterwards I can teach this method to the Ghanaian students by means of a real project." - Katrin Schreiber (Lufthansa Systems)
“I'm excited for the opportunity to learn the Design Thinking mindset and method in a completely new environment. I’m especially looking forward to being able to directly apply my new skills by teaching a group of young motivated students on self-chosen problems that directly affect them.” - Anne Nikolaus (Deutsche Lufthansa AG)
“I am really excited about learning design thinking together with the students from the local university.” - Marco Li (Brussels Airlines)
Only one month to go until Impact Week Ghana is ready for takeoff!
