Trainees make the world go round...


In my previous posting (few minutes ago) I was speaking about the people in PwC who really made my staying here worthwhile. It would make no sense then not to talk about the trainees…

And speaking about them, the moment I am writing this, one of the PwC trainees is on his way to the airport to fly back to Brazil. Eduardo was a trainee in PwC in Brussels and next January he will embark upon another PwC experience on the other side of the ocean, in New York. Andreea and he were the first trainees to come in Brussels after my starting the role as coordinator and gave me the motivation to try my best and enlarge the trainees’ crew. I felt most happy to still be around when the enlargement took place- we are now 10 minus 1 (with Eduardo leaving) in Brussels. I wish I could have the chance to meet face2face all trainees in PwC worldwide…you never know.

For the time being, I am thankful I got the chance to meet: Abhijeet (India), Alykhan (Canada), Andreea (Romania), Agustin (Mexico), Belha (Tunisia), Chin (Singapore), Denes (Hungary), Eduardo (Brazil), Mengting (China) and Xavier (France).

Just came back from a lunch with Abhijeet where we had an eye-opening conversation about past and current realities in Romania, India and European Union. I had a similar one last week with Agustin about Mexico.
This last Saturday Mengting cooked for us a delicious Chinese dinner at Xavier and Chin’s place- we were about 12 people (PwC, DHL, Microsoft, European Commission trainees). Among others (notably an interesting conversation about Chinese accents and name pronunciation), Leon (an Australian trainee, Honk-Kong origin) and Xavier thought me how to use chop-sticks (OK, OK, I do not do it the proper way, but at least I no longer drop the food each time I try to take from the plate). Then Belha (Tunisia) thought us how to say Open Sesame in Arabic (next thing I will ask him to teach me few basic phrases in Arabic- will be useful for my Moroccan trip next year).
All these might be little things, but they are definitely the type of experiences that help me discover new worlds.

Lastly, don’t think life with the trainees is only about discussions…oh no, the farewell party for Eduardo was as inspirational as the discussions mentioned above. Not to mention the moment Abhijeet and I dared (I admit, he tricked me into this) to put on our shoulders two huge (disgusting, I might add) snakes that were part of the show in the disco where we had the bye-bye party. No pictures were taken, so I cannot share with you the scary face I had. However, Abhijeet can testify that I was horrified…I think I left a mark when I grabbed his leg the moment I saw one of the snakes smiling at me:-).

There are more stories to tell, but I here I just blogged some highlights of my enjoying life with PwC trainees. Guys, I am truly excited you are here…I look forward to having more stories to share with you and about you.

Cya…
Norica


PS: in the previous posting I did manage to upload pictures (Agustin did not finish his consultancy job yet)- I'll try posting one with Eduardo unleashing his energy at the farewell party...

    As a good PwC employee, I gave you some highlights, but further actions will require another project (more $$!).

    Norica thanks a lot for your comments, truly inspirational. You give me great expectations for the future within my trainship.

    And I also has to say that I feel very lucky to have you as my previous coordinator and you still be here.

    Keep the good work!!

    Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
    Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
    Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
    Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

    Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
    The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
