Last December I had the opportunity to be part of one of the biggest self-development event TEDx in Luxembourg City. Most people are familiar with the TEDx model of conferences: ideas worth sharing being delivered in 10 - 12 minute talks, made available to the public online, so that more people can have access to them. This made me think of the act of volunteering: offering my time and services for free and not expecting payment in exchange. I realised throughout the process that the experience has given me so much that my time was actually paid, not in a pecuniary form, though. Volunteering has numerous benefits and I would like to encourage you to think about it in 2020. Here is a modest list of 5 of these benefits that I felt were my paycheck.

But how do those charities really operate behind doors? How to make sure that your charity reigns with the most trusted ones?
Doing an MBA had always been a life time goal! "Why?" would you ask. Does it really make you a better professional? Does it change you as an individual? And actually, what is it really to do a Master's in Business Administration? After more than 2 years of studying, dreams come true. In September, I will graduate with an Executive Henley MBA from Henley Business School.

"It is cold outside..." ; "This train will never arrive..." and "What time is the next bus?" These are usual thoughts of many people when it comes to commuting.
