A little about us and our why

The traditional models of employment have been broken. We need to equip the human-centric leaders with the tools and peers to move forward courageously to reimagine and reinvent the way we work. We cannot do these without the intervention of Experts in specialized topics, in facilitation or coaching. The world of work agrees. That’s why they are putting the upskilling in the top three of their yearly goals. But how are they supposed to access the diverse talent in their domains?

WeWent was established in 2017 and since then has become a trusted marketplace for future skills workshops. Switching to the Network model from fee based model, we dedicate our ongoing support to the Experts and we are now promoting our Experts stronger than ever with a clear guidance. So we can change the workplaces faster, better and together.

WeWent has also established “Shake up the Workplace! A future of work ecosystem” in 2019 and grew a community of 4000+ participants and followers across channels. is dedicated to leverage the knowledge of WeWent Pro Experts in its Shaker Academy and interactive events.
