Open letter to a Contacto trainee
10 September 2019
First of all, congratulations! You are one of the young talents selected to embark on this 9-month expedition of the Contacto Programme and you will have the opportunity to take a close look at Sonae’s world. You have proved to be an intrapreneur and now it’s time to get to work.

We want this to be a journey full of discoveries and challenges, during which you will learn a lot and teach even more. You will meet the best leaders of Sonae Group, get to know many new colleagues and work within multiple teams. Get the most out of the internal network and profiles’ diversity you will find in it. You will certainly have an amazing experience at all levels.

We will be constantly challenging you and we hope you do the same! Place your creativity, ability to innovate, non-conformity and restlessness in all the projects you will be part of (and there will be many!). Your agility, ability to analyse, communication and persuasion skills will certainly make a difference.

You can count on us for this adventure! We want you to make the most of the experience of being a Contacto Trainee and we will work hard to make sure of it.

From now on, you’re also in charge of our development and growth (we’re all responsible for it!). Our future is in your hands as well.

With you aboard we will go further! Welcome!

Ana Vicente
Head of Talent Management and Development at Sonae
