We know how to strike a balance between official and friendly, maintaining a high level of professionalism and respect in both manners. New York Crew always maintains a professional persona in matters concerning external bodies (partners, applicants, general public, etc.), but a friendly and familiar one within the organization. This is true despite the difference in rank or hierarchy between members. Our favourite conversation starters are: creativity, overcoming your limits, Follow your passion!, adventure, alternative(s), culture, learning by doing, and the community.
