The social enterprise “Hoogbegaafd in Bedrijf” (*) has developed a training for employees of large organizations to become an Ambassador for Giftedness.Ambassadors for Giftedness provide information within their organization about giftedness at work and provide insight into the added value of gifted people. In addition they create a community for the gifted people who work within their organization. They make the specific development needs visible and contribute in such a way that their employer can (even) better benefit from the qualities of their gifted employees.In this workshop company director Rianne van de Ven will share information about the concept of the training and how it was developed. Participants can ask questions and participate in a group discussion if this concept can be used in other countries as well.
