On stage during the 11th RSM Leadership Summit 2019

This year I had the honor of chairing the 11th RSM Leadership Summit 2019, held at the Van Nelle Fabriek Rotterdam.
The only constant is change. That was by far the most important message today. With marvelous and brilliant key-notes that really fought the attention of the audience. Being a business school this summit gathered 600 students, alumni and professionals together. While for some events networking is only a goal on paper, today’s audience really reached out to learn and meet up during this summit. It really made my day as a moderator. See you all next year!
