8 Februarie 2012


Holcim (Romania) and Corporate Dynamics International organize during the period April 2 - 6 and June 11 - 15 seminars for the personal development of 120 students in the 11th grade in Alesd, Campulung and Turda. The educational programme "Build your future" is initiated and financed by Holcim (Romania) in partnership with Corporate Dynamics International.

The objective of the seminars within the "Build your future" programme is to empower, motivate and offer a vision on the future and also models for finding the path in life for students in their senior years of high school education. Also this year the training programme is interactive and practical, with various exercises and role playing.

"We initiated this programme three years ago in order to offer the young people from the local communities in which we are active as much information as possible, which is useful for their future development. The seminars we organize help the high-school students discover their potential and learn how to use the best tools for success," said Markus Wirth, Country Manager of Holcim (Romania).

"Build your future" is a personal development programme which offers high-school students, during five interactive modules, knowledge on efficient communication and networking, self assessment, career planning, efficient study, social conduct, and CV writing. At the end of the program, each participant presents his/her personal development plan, based on the knowledge acquired within the training courses.

"The success 'Build your future' enjoyed within high-school students has convinced us to continue the program this year. These seminars are helping the young people to easily choose their path of life, to discover values and principles needed for success, and to fully use their potential for building their future," said Nicoleta Salajan, Human Resources Director of Holcim (Romania).

"The creed and mission of the consultants from Corporate Dynamics are to positively change lives through our programmes. We feel that, together with Holcim, our traditional partner, we succeed in contributing to the personal and professional development of the young people involved in thethird edition of ' Build your future 2076' programme, and also to promoting social responsibility within the communities in Romania," said Decebal Leonard Marin, Managing Partner of Corporate Dynamics International.
