It` s that time of the year – Christmas Time. So…why not adding some Rotaract spirit to it? As many of you know, Zagreb proudly holds the title of The Best European Christmas Fair for the two consecutive years, winning the title for 2018 as well. And that is how we do it – mulled wine, sausages, numerous sweets, ice-skating, street lights, Christmas trees and shows, etc. are only a couple of thing that keep us on the throne of Best European Christmas Market.

Having in mind this special time of the year, we had decided to spice up the end of 2017 by gathering Rotaract friends together as a part of our last year`s Rotaract Leadership Academy project, changing the title to Zagreb Advent Weekend, held between December 1st – 3rd in Croatian capital.

It was structured as a weekend full of fun and leisure activities together with the key interactive workshop: „How To Brand Yourself?“ lectured by EMCC professional coach, trainer, NLP master, graduate teacher and Head coach in Elevate, Mrs. Tihana Dragičević. Learning the basic elements how to exclude unimportant from important in promoting yourself to your future employer or a customer.

15 participants in total, as well as organizers from Rotaract Club Zagreb – Sesvete had an extraordinary weekend while exploring Zagreb` Christmas Market, enjoying official Christmas dinner, learning how to brand ourselves and making new friends along the weekend.
