  • We brengen West-Vlaamse Ambits mentoren, klanten en geĂ¯nteresseerden samen voor netwerken en kennismaken. En dit doen we in vloeiend West-Vlaams 🙂

    Een mooie gelegenheid om nog beter te ontdekken waar Ambits precies voor staat. We laten een mentor, mentee en een opdrachtgever uit de doeken doen hoe zij de impact van mentoring ervaren hebben. Daarna bieden we iedereen een hapje en drankje aan.


    Mentor Wim Loncke nodigt u uit.
