The presidents‘ times Dear SKIA, I am writing this intro after almost 4 weeks out of the office, out of the country. I have gone through the most intense and biggest conferences in the AIESEC network with my Slovak delegation- ThaĂ­s, Lexie, Kubo and Zuzka. I can tell you we are bringing many

cooperations, new strategies, contacts, inputs, ideas and most of all fresh energy to do more and break all the limits SKIA is fighting with. August was a month of last preparation, I dare to say. We finalized our recruitment, we finalized Educate Slovakia September round

we prepared for newies and are ready to go for one of the busiest periods of the term. I wish all of you good luck, lot of energy from a really hot and sunny summer and me and MC Shockwave are looking forward to seeing you all on Energize.


LCPs summer sharing Zuzka, LC BA: For EBmotions the summer was too faaaaast :((. 5 of us were living together at dormitories so sometimes we spent the whole days together but still withou ponorka :D. Morover we had 23 interns at that domritory so they created a great international surrounding. The whole EB was working on strategical stuff needed for our term - selling partenrships, creating our budget, new PAM system, preparing recruitment, etc. Actually in august we met really just in small EB groups, because most of us went for some holidays, I was for IC so we did not manage to be so often together as in July when we had a lot of funny teambuldings :D. The current situation in our LC is that everybody is waiting for the arrival of our leadershipbody from abroad and new members to they create a TRUE LC ATMOSPHERE :)


Jakub, LC CU: A summer proved as a challenging time for us, with most of the membership and teamleaders gone on vacation. Even EB members had other obligations from time to time, making it difficult to meet all of us together sometimes, resulting in meetings where 1 person was missing most of the time. Despite these drawbacks we managed to keep our focus on the strategical stuff for which summer is the best, such as redesigning of our R'n'R systems, knowledge management and process optimalization. The summer is over now and we're finally working together again prepared to nail this recruitment.


Baška, LC NR: Well, our EB summer was really cool, especially our EB flat with Barbarian bathroom  During summer we had 1st LC visit with lady Marinič, we went to CEC, we lost our VP PR, we had CEEDer from Cairo & lot of crazy funny moments  We did lot of work and now we are doing our best to prepare super cool RCTM and get some awesome newbies. See u all soon! B.


Noro a.k.a. Magic Moon, LC BB: This summer was really cool! Maybe it started with some complications as two VPs finnished their EB journey 1.7.2013 what wasn't really best start of summer I can think of. Then Nika joined our UNIQUE team, what was and will be the last change in EB structure. Those changes influenced our first month the most, but we were finally able to start work properly on inovations and processes we wanted to. In August we created new JD & working system mainly for oldies, we changed compendium totally mainly old stuff which didn't even make sense after 8 years, we prepared recruit and also ALUMNI weekend which will be at the end of septembre. So that was our summer and we are looking forward to implement all the stuff.


Siska, LC TT: This summer was the most challenging period in my life- it showed me, however well are you prepared and however good is your plan, the reality is always different. After our VP FIN left, I recieved an e-mail from VP OGP, that he has to go too, so now it´s only 4 VPs and me left. I realized, how difficult is to be everywhere- the result is, that you´re nowhere :) . But things are finally starting to move, so we´re ready to make an awesome rctm and to do our best during the autumn period!


Baška, IG PO: Summer was quite challenging period for us since newly created EB of Preshow did not have chance to fully spend it together. We were meeting on our planning days, transition days,LC visit day and training&teambuilding cottage though. So, we managed to plan (almost) the whole RCTM, started to work on LIC, and, generally, prepared ourselves for new members in summer :) But what is more, we spent time together as team, as Preshow first EB in its history ;)

IC delegation sharing


Lucka, MCP: „IC 2013 was a crazy experience in a country going through a revolution, fighting through its youth for a better future. This context shaped the conference as well, since in these times a question of leadership has become even more urgent. IC was full of conversations, powerful decisions, people, learnings and realizations and for me one of the most memorable conferences in my AIESEC career.“ Zuzka, LC BA: „This conference was the second international conference for me. If I should compare it with EuroXpro, the IC agenda was sometimes repetitive from EuroXpro and more relevant for not so developed AIESECs, but for networking and reciveing GCPs IC was betteer a lot. I have created contacts which I hope will not last just for AIESEC times but also longer. IC was also great at the fact the all facis were AI members so for the conclusion IC was an unique unforgottable experience. “


Jakub, LC CU: „IC 2013 had a potential to be one of the best conferences that I ever visited. Poor organization, local disturbances, repetitiveness of the content and a rather everpresent feeling of "unfinished" however kept this conference from reaching it's potential. Maybe the amazing EuroXpro 2013 spoiled me a bit, but I can not say that I was satisfied by this conference. Not lingering on the negative though, being able to meet 800 people from over 120 countries certainly left an impression on me. I enjoyed several conversations and I'm definitely coming back enriched with contacts I otherwise would've find harder to acquire. However if I had to advise any future LCP left in the situation where he/she has to choose between EuroXpro and IC, I would definitely suggest EuroXpro as a conference more relevant for LCPs both in terms of the content and timing.“


My leadership story... My leadership story started few years ago. Interesting fact – it was not in AIESEC  My first leadership experience comes from scouting when I was (15 -16) and I became „ an advisor“ a.k.a. teamleader of group of 5 girls. I don’t know if you know the organization, so just in few words – its ambition is the overal development of children and young people (in all aspects of the personality). Probably this was the experience that made me come to AIESEC, and even more important – made me stay. I joined AIESEC 2 and half years ago. By chance. I just came back from Strasbourg, my semester abroad. I’ve always been andventurous and willing to travel, so I came to infomeeting to get some information about internships. And out of nothing I just filled in the application form for membership. I came to the assessment, then to the interview. And I’ve passed  I started as ICP member, and truly - it wasn‘t exactly what I had expected. To be absolutely honest I have to admit that I was thinking about leaving the organization. BUT then the challenge came. I got offer to became an OGP teamleader. And my inner adventurer took the control, I got transition and one month later also 4 scared newbies. Together, we became the best team in AIESEC Skia for 2011/2012. What is more important – I found out that this was „it“. My „it“ what I can do, what I want to do, what can I offer. Thanks to the base that I had from scouting, learning point that I took from my poor ICP carrer and motivation from my own OGP team, I found my new passion – leadership. After my teamleader experience I became VP OGP and currently I am LCP of AIESEC Nitra. More than 2 years I am in leadership positions, and I still love it. But don’t get my wrong – it’s not so easy all the time. I still have some days when I am demotivated, even frustrated, when the things go just wrong and I am asking myself „WTF??!! Is this really what I want to do?“.


The truth is - being a leader sucks sometimes – and not because of many duties and responsibility. In my case it was mostly because of learning – to let go, to admit when you fuck something up, to accept when not everything is how you want. First point when I really felt as a leader was a moment when I realized that I am totally not the leader I want to be. This moment was the most important while in my leadership experience. I defined the leader, or better – person I want to become, and since then I am working on it – (not)suprisingly, it works!! And now I can say – accepting the „uncomfortable“ makes us better – it gives you opportunity to become the higher standard of yourself . Well, as opposites to the bad days - there are days when EPs get home from great internship, some super cool meetings are happening, or I just come at our office make some coffee and talk with our members. Those are simply good days. When you can see the results of your trying, you clearly see the relevance of AIESEC and importance of our actions. But for me it’s not those days, what keeps me dedicated to the organization, neither importance of our activities. It’s people. My team, the most. People around who share my values and my vision. People who are working hard and party as crazy. People who motivate me, inspire me, eventually make me mad, but also proud; people who turn my worst days into the greatest. AIESEC is constantly challenging organization, it pushes you forward and it’s good. Cause thanks to that you can achieve things you would never dream about, it gives you space to develop your talents and it teaches you how to eliminate your weaknesses. For me, AIESEC is now a lot more than an organization where I belong - it’s helping me to grow, to become a person I want to be. AIESEC is my lighthouse for finding the way how can I achieve my ambitions.
