Anna Polek

The Excelle Program motivated me to take my career at ABB into my own hands! The group dynamic was very inspiring, and we had many vivid conversations. Thanks to the varying courses and panel discussion, I learned a lot about different approaches in communication, creative thinking and leadership. 

Stina Juhlin

It was great meeting young women from all over Europe to learn and share experiences. We learned useful tools to use in daily life and had an interesting and open meeting with honest managers. We walked out from the Excelle Program more powerful and happy, with tools and a great network in Europe. 

Nicole Wagner

Excelle – for me – is a unique and outstanding personal development program for female trainees. It was inspiring and energizing to learn with and from the other participants, from engaged coaches and from motivated female leaders, to share experiences, and to get feedback from peers and experts. Reflecting the benefits and positive effects of diversity, talent development, as well as own ideas and career plans was the perfect preparation for my permanent role and my next steps at ABB. 

Sarah Bickerstaffe

Excelle was a truly inspirational experience through which I have broadened my awareness of ABB in both a cultural and business sense. I have developed a network of supportive colleagues across Europe and through learning from these fantastic women. Accepting feedback and applying tools introduced in the course I found that the program provided a safe space, which allowed me to reflect on my own experiences and aspirations as an individual and motivating me to actively achieve these throughout my career.
