What does EBEC mean to you?

EBEC is one of the greatest achievements of my life, and it will always be a significant part of my life.

When you look back at event, what are you most proud of?

I am really proud of the team. I was surrounded by an incredible team of people who were always there to be at their best. Everybody involved in organising EBEC 2010 poured their heart and soul into the event. It would have been impossible without them.

It helped me a lot in developing skills like Project Management and Conflict Solving as well as Management of Crisis Situations. At the moment I am a Solution Engineer for one of the biggest software companies in the world and I blame EBEC for this.

What is the most important thing you learned during the organization of EBEC Final?

That it is very important to delegate and give people the opportunity to learn by your side. That there is no problem without a solution.

EBEC is the BEST project of BEST so far! It connects a lot of cool people from different countries who are interested in doing engineering in a fun way. It involves BESTies and participants and the spirit is great! I had a chance to be in all of the EBEC rounds (local, national and Final) and it is, definitely, a blast!

Many people involved and working together at the event itself. Problem solving ability after some unforeseen circumstances.

What does EBEC mean to you?

EBEC is an inspiring project, capable to take the best of the people that believe in developing people through competitions. And it doesn’t matter if you are an organizer or a participant, because all of us are competing with ourselves to be successful.

When you look back at event, what are you most proud of?

I am proud of absolutely everything. Taking into consideration that is not a path paved with gold, I really loved how all the people involved worked like a charm for a whole year, dealing with ups and downs and a lot of emotions and challenges, and all of it was completely worthy because we pushed ourselves to another level to do a great job for BEST.

How did organizing EBEC Final helped your personal development?

I hadn’t done anyhting before like being in EBEC Team. For me EBEC it was a very great event and I was not completely sure that I would be able to handle it although I was highly motivated. At the end I found out that with motivation and effort it was possible to achieve anything I want.

What is the most important thing you learned during the organization of EBEC Final?

As mentioned before, I found out that with motivation and effort it was possible to achieve anything I want. Also, that bonding together with your team make a lot easier and enjoyable working with a team <3

What does EBEC mean to you?

EBEC is a competition which changes the lives of people involved in it. It is a service which combines all the values of BEST. It’s kind of the olympics of engineering students. It is a huge passion and addiction. As I have said many times, EBEC is a project which is worth fighting for.

When you look back at event, what are you most proud of?

I am most proud of the people who organise it. A bunch of university students with the same dream, following the same goals. In the end we managed to organised such a big event on such a high quality level. Thats what I am most proud of, I am proud of us doing this.

How did organizing EBEC Final helped your personal development?

Since I was from a BEST group which was also hosting EBEC Final 2017 I learned a lot about the whole planning and resources needed for such an event. Moreover I learned about teamwork, virtual communication and I got more confident with public speaking.

What is the most important thing you learned during the organization of EBEC Final?

There is no doubt about the answer here at all. The most important lesson that EBEC Final gave me was that everything is doable if you have a group of passionate people whol believe it is doable.

What does EBEC mean to you?

EBEC for us, BESTies, represents organizing an enormous and complex event by cooperating with people from many other countries! And by doing that, we experienced in first person the meaning of BEST: “empowered diversity” and “developing students”.

When you look back at event, what are you most proud of?

First of all, the amazing moments shared with all the great people you meet. Secondly, the personal growth of learning how to work using technological tools to overcome distance.

How did organizing EBEC Final helped your personal development?

The tools we used to work with are the ones I use now with my clients!

What is the most important thing you learned during the organization of EBEC Final?

The event per se is just the tip of the iceberg! You have to work behind the scenes for a really long time in order to be ready in august 🙂
