Share Your Super Power with the Digital Brusselles Community!
Digital Brusselles is about knowledge-sharing among women -- some new to the career marketplace, and some more experienced but looking to try new things, e.g. starting their own digitally-driven commercial or social enterprise.  Do you have a secret super power (big or small!) -- building resumes, time management, bookkeeping tips & tricks, online marketing, etc. -- that you would like to share with a group of kind and curious women who could really benefit from what you know, and that you can share in an open, relaxed and non-judging setting?  Then please get in touch with us!  Your contribution to the Digital Brusselles community can pay you back in free attendance at workshops and events run by Digital Brusselles and other community members. So anything you contribute -- in English, Dutch, French or whatever language with which you're most comfortable -- will definitely come back to you.
