WHAT?

More Institute is an exclusive network for ambitious female professionals. The institute focuses on advancing individual professional development.

WHY?

‘More’ is the DNA of the institute. It is the brand essence. ‘More’ means energy, inspiration, passion and more always seeks to become more. ‘More’ tries harder and achieves results. More also seeks to obtain even more competent females to lean in for executive posts.

‘Institute’ is because it isn’t just a classic network. The members strengthen each other, serve as mentors to other females and arrange workshops with external sources of knowledge. The institute uses its platform to host conferences focusing on female talent management. At the moment, the institute is also writing a book.

You can also read more about what other mentees have learned during our mentor programme:
I have learned to believe more in myself and my abilities, and generally be less skeptical. In addition, I have learned to have a more structured approach to things, for example. job search, networking and general operations”.
Strong positive attitude toward future: for instance, I will always set ambitious goals for myself, reach them, and set others (…)

The key benefit for me has been to have someone objective to speak to. I have learned to take a step back and re-assess my situation with objective eyes. I have also learned to look at all options before making a decision which means that I feel much more comfortable about the choices I make”.

It was good to get some specific tools for the different processes I went through, and it was nice to get a different angle on things”.
