Four of our Talent Exchange Program participants fill you in on their journeys below!
"I am very grateful for my time spent overseas working at Canon Europe. I was assigned to the Consumer Imaging Group Digital Services team, specializing in customer acquisition and monetization of two digital apps: Lifecake and the Canon Photo Print Shop. The experience was nothing short of rewarding, both personally and professionally. From a personal standpoint, I had the incredible opportunity to visit 18 countries during my stay, soaking in the sights of destinations ranging from Ireland to Istanbul. From a professional standpoint, I learned how traditional digital marketing principles apply to digital apps, taking the lead to coordinate marketing materials, launching paid campaigns in support of user growth, and working with my team to create a comprehensive forecast business plan. It was so fulfilling to be tasked with making such important decisions — decisions that will continue to have an impact today — and I couldn’t be happier to have had the chance to take advantage of this program.”
"The 2017 Canon Talent Exchange Program provided me with the opportunity to work with the Professional Service Excellence and Global Services teams in Canon Europe. Being assigned to projects for NSOs from several countries was interesting and challenging, and it helped me to learn the nuances of working with the various European cultures. The knowledge gained from exposure to their processes and procedures is easily transferable to the USA team as we engage more global opportunities. For a history buff being in England, there wasn’t a shortage of places to see and experience. It was a privilege to be part of such a remarkable program.”
"My participation in the 2017 Talent Exchange Program has been one of the most rewarding and memorable experiences of my life. As a member of Canon Europe’s Internal Audit Department, I worked closely with divisional management from the principal Regional Headquarters offices and various National Sales Organizations across Europe. The challenge and excitement of working with different languages, countries, and cultures has had an incredible impact on me, both professionally and personally. I was able to approach each organization’s processes, procedures, and internal controls with a fresh perspective, striving to offer insightful opportunities for improvement and constructively challenge the status quo. My interactions with the EMEA market have allowed me to deepen my understanding of Canon’s global operations, and I am excited to utilize these new skills and knowledge back in Canon USA. Personally, this experience has allowed me to gain a newfound perspective, appreciation, and understanding of many different cultures, while learning so much about myself in the process. During this past year, I was fortunate to be able to travel to 15 countries and numerous cities throughout Europe; I was able to see and do things I never would have imagined I would, while building lasting friendships along the way. I am forever grateful for being given this opportunity and I am looking forward to what lies ahead!”
"My experience with the 2017 Canon Exchange Program at Canon Europe and living in London is one I will never forget. From the people I met to all the countries I visited (14 total!), the Talent Exchange Program afforded me a great opportunity to grow both professionally and personally. I gained valuable international business experience and a better understanding of Canon globally while building invaluable relationships. I always regretted not living abroad when I was younger and never thought I would get the opportunity as an adult in my professional life.”
