Join the #SmartPlan Community

the community Committed to ACHIEVING more - Together - through networkingeducation, inspiration, and opportunity.


How to make an impact and be successful in working together with others to shape the future? A colleague once offered to me (quoting someone): “Be yourself, be yourself more, be yourself more professionally.”
It deeply resonated with me. Being successful together is about being authentic and empathetic as we relate to one another. We can become outstanding teams only if we build trust.
Successfully making an impact is also about being professional, having skills and expertise and proven leadership that we can bring to the table. It’s also about being somebody with a growth mindset and energy who sees chances and sustainability in our future.
So to those who have that drive and are workers and leaders, individuals and team players, and authentic people (and still have a life) and who don’t find all of that a contradiction: that what the idea is behind #SmartPlan. Let’s multiply the power, talk, listening and working together on our leadership skills and networking plans to make an even bigger impact on our future, together.

I had been so busy focusing on my career that I hadn’t noticed my professional relationships slipping away. After joining #SmartPlan, I learned how to easily create value for others and, in doing so, re-build my relationships. My network is now stronger than ever.

Ancient Greeks had the Agorà, a gathering place at the heart of a community where citizens could come together to discuss politics and sport, philosophy and art. Where is our modern gathering space, where we can share important conversations with other great minds and develop ourselves both personally and professionally? Here, in the #SmartPlan community. Thanks to the number and quality of participants, to the different backgrounds and motivations, we finally have created a modern-day Agorà where we can grow and stretch ourselves to reach new achievements well beyond what we could have done alone.
