The 2014 Leipzig Book Fair has kicked off and a marvellous opportunity has arisen out of it this year for me and a certain little book. This weekend, I’ll be there presenting What I Know About Germans at the Leipziger Autorenrunde, at a roundtable discussion on “Vom Blogartikel zum eigenen Buch – Über erfolgreiches Selbst-Marketing im Social Web”. There are so many wonderful things being discussed at this particular event – check out the full program here – and I believe you can still buy tickets here.
Stuck for vocational or academic inspiration or direction? Keen to undertake work that makes a difference and contributes to society? Or perhaps you are interested in spending a year in Germany, to learn more about the country’s social services sector, improve your German and gather valuable professional and philanthropic experience. The Voluntary Social Year may be for you.
I’ve written an article on the German Voluntary Social Year (Freiwilliges Soziales Jahr) which you can find over at Young Germany.
