On 18th January B+I Strategy partner, Oscar Valdivielso, took part in the learning workshops of the ANDREkintzailea Programme sponsored by the Provincial Government of Bizkaia, whereby they are accompanied every step of the way on their entrepreneurial journey. The objective of this initiative, which offers ongoing training, coaching, and mentorship to women entrepreneurs, is to improve the visibility of women in business generally, and particularly, at directorship level.
Entitled "Women who generate employment and wealth, while bringing value to their clients", the profile of the 36 professionals coming from a variety of sectors who participated at this year's ANDREkintzailea event was slightly different to previous occasions; that is, it was focused on women as both entrepreneurs and managers of their own company. The action-packed agenda included workshops on subjects such as Leadership, Communication, Business Management, Finance, and Creativity; Networking events and Coaching programmes as well as One-on-one Mentoring sessions.
The overall aim of the event was to "Covering any gaps in business management" and with this in mind, Oscar's contribution was centred around concepts and tools connected with strategy, innovation and Intra/entrepreneurship.
