YES-DC Network Event: What it takes to be a young professional in a changing world – Fri. 13 December 2013 (registration opened)

YES-DC Network Event:
What it takes to be a young professional in a changing world.

We are not in an era of change, but in a change of era’s. The world is changing at a rapid pace, and we – students and young professionals – have to try and catch up. This YES-DC event will try to offer everybody the right insights and tools to do so. We will start off with Jasper Leunk, digital strategist at eFocus. He will tell us how the online world is changing our daily reality, the energy business, and our careers. Then, Timo Spijkerboer will tell us about his experiences over the past year. Having talked to many CEOs, young professionals, and students, he knows exactly what they are looking for – and how they often misunderstand each other. Finally, we will finish with some old school offline speed dating. Over the years, YES-DC created a tremendous network of passionate people, but how well do we know each other? This time, we will stop listening to old men in grey suites, and start listening to each other.
