CoachCafé for young alumni wildly successful

05 March 2019

The CoachCafé, held on 11 February 2019 in the Academy Building, clearly met millennials’ needs. The meeting was a great success. During the event, forty-one young alumni attending asked fifteen coaches their career questions. The coaches participated voluntarily in the CoachCafé, which was organized by the UG Alumni Relations and Fundraising department and the Young Alumni Network (YAN). Ninety-six percent of the visitors rated the event as good to very good, and all respondents would recommend the CoachCafé to their friends. The first UG coaches have already signed up for next year’s CoachCafé.

In the evaluation, the young alumni indicated that they would like to see workshops about leadership and personal branding being added to the CoachCafé. On 15 June 2019, during the UG Lustrum celebrations, YAN will be organizing a meeting for all alumni in the Aula of the UG Academy Building, involving human bingo and happiness as the central theme.
