lxV council meeting ISTANBUL-YİLDİZ

6TH - 11TH NOVEMBER 2022

About Council Meetings

The Council Meeting is the statutory meeting of ESTIEM and takes place twice a year. It is composed of two parts: The General Assembly, where everyone is updated on what is going on in ESTIEM and decisions are made through voting, The Working Groups, Training Sessions and Company Workshops, where smaller groups either work to develop ESTIEM, or improve their soft skills. It is the place where we gather to invest time in our organisation, to meet new and old friends and where we celebrate the ESTIEM spirit.

Dear ESTIEMers, 

I have a question for you: do you sometimes feel lost because you have no idea what you are going to do after your studies? If you feel that way, don’t worry. Many other ESTIEMers, including myself, do too. Thankfully, we have an answer for this problem.

Hi, my name is Marlene, I am from LG Berlin and I am herewith officially applying for the “Be X for X Days” leadership position for 6 months. 


“Be X for X Days” (or short BXD) was one of my first ever offline ESTIEM events. I was obsessed with the concept behind it from the first minute on since it is a very student friendly and approachable event for everybody that shows many different professional fields. 

My journey in ESTIEM began in March 2021 when I joined my Local Group in Berlin, at the beginning of my studies. After a while, I  was elected as head of Human Resources on my Local Board, where I was responsible for all local events happening in Berlin. It was during that time where I gained a lot of leadership experiences while organising events within a project team.

After being part of my first ever offline ESTIEM event abroad in Budapest I knew that I wanted to support our amazing network to the best of my abilities. This was the reason why I not only helped to organise more ESTIEM events we had in Berlin, but was elected Secretary for the last Council Meeting in Belgrade. During this time I got to understand the structure of our network even better while working in close contact with the 32nd Board. 

After participating in two “Be X for X Days” events (one offline and one online), I knew that my heart was in the Career Development Department. Therefore I was beyond excited that I got to be appointed as a transactional leader by the 33rd Board this summer. The moments that I got to spend as a leader so far showed me how much I love the BXD service, working in the BXD team, and the entire Central ESTIEM environment. Therefore I would be honoured to keep my position and pursue the following goals:

  1. Further promote the online-version of BXD, “Be X for X hours” and make it a regular format. 
  2. Support and strengthen the further establishment of the Career Development Department within our network by offering more events (online and offline).
  3. Cover a large  variety of professional fields to help students with their choice of what direction to choose after their studies.
  4. Help the organising Local Groups through successful offline events. We want you to know that the BXD Team is there on every step of the way to help you and guide you through your event. 

Please feel free to approach me if you have any more questions ( I can’t wait to see you all in Istanbul!
