Maya Pavlovic – LCI Treasurer Candidate – 2019

Dear LCI board, Dear LCI councilors My name is Maya Pavlovic and is a pleasure for me meeting you through this brief presentation. I was born in Serbia, in a family who gifted me with a happy and generous life. Unfortunately, the politic conditions during the 90s in Serbia pushed me and my child to leave my family and move to Italy, for a brand-new beginning. In 2012, in Italy, I have met the Round Tabler’s world, who brought me two big presents: Ladies Circle and my husband. It has been 3 years since I have joined Ladies Circle Italia and since I had the chance to get to know marvellous people, that has become a kind of extended family to me, where I have found my best and true friends. Applying for the International Treasury position, is an act of care towards who has given me so much. Taking care of our finances is like taking care of all the Ladies Circle’s world. My job as Manager of the Technical and Purchasing Office of a company operating in the naval field, is a mansion that requires attention, accuracy and a special eye on details. Something that I could for sure bring also in this new opportunity. For me this role will be a further evidence of how much I can donate to our Association. During the years, in order to realize my daughter’s dreams, I have worked hard giving my best in each job I was assigned to, trying to get the best out of every situation. This is who I am: a person that loves helping others through my work and this is what I want to give to the Ladies Circle, because, as John Donne once wrote, “No man is an island” and I would like to [...]

Lena Widmark – LCI Weblady Candidate – 2019

DEAR LCI BOARD, DEAR LCI COUNCILORS, There are moments in life when we are presented with an opportunity and the choice we make end up being a turning point. Like asking out the man whom you will later marry or maybe choosing a new career path for instance. For me being invited to my first Ladies Circle meeting in 2011 was one of those life-altering opportunities. Now here I am, reaching for a new fantastic opportunity! For these are exciting times! LCI is taking a huge step to bring circlers together all around the world. I have just ended my two-year appointment as national weblady for LC Sweden. During the past two years I’ve managed our member- and event-database and when our national board tasked me with finding a new, more current, solution I found circler.world. The best way to learn more is always to get involved so I contacted the project team to offer my services. It has been amazing seeing our associations join up and migrate into circler.world. I truly feel that this is the future for LCI. I also believe that this step to bring us all closer will drastically change the role of weblady over the next few years. That is the reason I asked LC Sweden to support me as a candidate for LCI weblady. As well as being a circler, I'm wife the of a triathlete, mother of two wifi-abusing teenagers and, eight hours a day, application manager for the PLM system at an automotive company. I have worked with IT for close to 20 years. My experience spans from user support, systems development and database architecture to project management, quality assurance and process development. With the new circler.world platform, you will need a weblady who can work together with the project team and [...]

Ilze Sipkevica – LCI VP Candidate – 2019

Dear LCI Board, dearest ladies, I come from Latvia and live in my beloved hometown and the capital of Latvia– Riga. I have also lived in the U.K., London, for 2 years for my Marketing and Communication studies. I work as a Marketing Manager in Baltics for the Foodservice company delivering a variety of food products to HoReCa and Retail Clients in Baltics. I’m married and have a 4 years old son and full support from my family to challenge myself for the new experience within the Ladies’ Circle Association. I joined Ladies' Circle community in 2006. Since then it has been a life-changing and exciting journey – meeting friendly, caring and motivated ladies in meetings and events locally and internationally. By becoming a member of the Association I have been growing as a person in every possible way – meeting wonderful, committed and active women – learning by sharing experiences the way Association works on a National scale in different countries, getting inspired the way service projects are carried out locally and nationally. I have learned to understand more, to love more, to achieve more. I believe that the happiness is in experiencing the road, not only aiming for the targeted cornerstone without seeing what surrounds us – places, people, their lives and history, their dreams and aspirations. Therefore, hearing others, understanding the personal motivation, respecting individuality and a human compassion are allies in my own road. With this feeling at heart I wish to contribute and continue the great work that the LCI Board is leading on with such wonderful board members, councilors and projects, like “Circler.World”, branding, website, legal status and more. I will put all my best effort and communication abilities to promote our organization, the wonderful purpose of LCI and continue achieving the set goals, [...]

Femke-van-Raam – LCI VP Candidate – 2019

Dear Ladies, This is so exciting!! I am really writing this application letter. I have been thinking about it for years, but now I am doing it, now I am ready, ready to be your Vice President. First things first: Who is Femke van Raam-Schuurbiers? I am a 39-year-old Lady happily married to Niels van Raam for 12 years already. We know each other since we were 4 and 6 years old, but the love only came later. We don’t have any children, but we do have a lovely cat. Together we own Tapavino in Bergen op Zoom, a wine and delicacy business, but my real passion is Van Kiezel naar KEI, my newly registered own business where I empower people and help them to grow. Inspiring people to get the most out of themselves is the most rewarding thing to do! I love working, but balance in life is very important, so I enjoy Pilates, I love playing with my two nephews, we travel and spend quality time with friends. Besides this all, I have one main and passionate hobby: Ladies’ Circle! In 2008 Niels, who was a Tabler at that point, received the national RT magazine. I read an article about LCNL looking for women to start up new Circles. Until then I have never heard about Ladies’ Circle, but I immediately knew: this is what I want! Therefore, it happened and on October 1 st 2011,our Circle was chartered. Since then I was founding Chairlady of my Circle for the first 3 years, VP/P/IPP of LC the Netherlands from 2013 until 2016, editor of our national Magazine, convenor of the LCI AGM 2019 Rotterdam and currently chairlady of my own Circle since 2017. Besides that I have joined multiple AGM’s, MTM’s, the national AGM’s of the Netherlands [...]

Anna Andersson – LCI VP Candidate – 2019

Dear LCI board, dear LCI councilors, Ever since I was a child, Ladies Circle has been a part of my life. My mother was, and still is, a very active circler and my sister and I have similar memories of her preparing to go to meetings every second week. Memories that our mother has as well from when she was a child, watching her mother do the same. I am a third-generation circler with a burning passion for Ladies Circle. In fact, I consider being a circler as a way of life, and I embrace this lifestyle to the fullest. I am a 35 year old, single and active woman who live in Göteborg, Sweden. When I am not working as a finance manager in a little plaiting company, most of my time is spent with LC. Luckily, most of my best friends are circlers as well! This past year, my 6th year as a circler, I have been the national president of Ladies Circle Sweden and it has been the best year of my life. I have grown as a person and I have gathered experiences that I believe will benefit me if I receive your trust to lead our organization in the future. Leading an organization of strong women requires a large dose of diplomacy, letting everyone have a say and listening to all arguments while at the same time having the courage and strength to say enough is enough. Preferably in a warm and understanding way. LC Sweden have had some challenges this year that have allowed me to develop these traits. If I am elected vice president of LCI, I wish to continue the work that have already begun in further connecting all countries of LCI to each other. The joint platform circler.world and a mutual [...]
