Start the day with listening to Joris Mencke, our failure expert, who has lots of insight into making choices. 

Allard van Leeuwen, a psychologist, will discuss why stereotypical thinking is your friend, but also your foe. 

After that, Florian Gerritsen from De Bildung Academie will take a philosophical approach to thinking, and discuss how you can think differently. 

Round up with the energetic and interactive Holy Sh*t Show from the School for Millennials to get all your ideas about careers blown away.


Ready to roll up your sleeves and get to work after the talks? Choose one of our career workshops and get tips on your CV or LinkedIn profile, how the Dutch labour market works, how to tackle assessments tests, design thinking as a method for career orientation, and more.
