“Over the past 14 years, I held several positions in the pharmaceutical industry. Having a combination of a medical and management background, I placed myself in the middle between the technical/back office and the commercial colleagues. A couple of years ago, I decided to purchase the TIAS Alumni Membership Package, ‘ Inspire’ , to broaden my view outside my daily job and company. The backup of the TIAS Alumni Membership Package turned out to be extremely helpful: I gained a lot of self-knowledge, confidence and the ability to reflect as a manager. Rather than just reading management books, attending the alumni workshops and interacting with peers during the workshop days made far more impact. When the company I used to work for was taken over and my previous position was made redundant, the activities of the membership package provided me with food for thought and focus on the world outside my own job. And with success, as I found myself a new opportunity as team coach for a big pharmaceutical company."
-Marloes Groenland (MA in International Business and Marketing Management 2007)
“I’m very supportive about the alumni membership package, since it is really value for money. I don’t doubt about the TIAS alumni membership package. I usually attend 3 events a year and almost without exception, these are of great quality with good lecturers and interactive ways of working. The take-aways are great, due to the content, the quality of the lecturers and the fact that you take time for your own development.
It’s important to immediately block your agenda after subscribing for a workshop since there is always work to do, but I stick to the plan and never regret spending a day at TIAS".
-Petra Jungjohann (Women Corporate Directors Program 2015)
“People sometimes say that the price tag of the TIAS Alumni Membership Package is hefty. They ask, is it worth the money? I can confirm that it definitely is. The package covers a lot of formal and informal events, which really deliver value for my invested money and time. It isn’t only about knowledge, the main benefits come from the break-outs, receiving individual feedback and interacting with other alumni. The events give me new insights, knowledge and (even more important) inspiration and energy.”
-Bas van Driel, (Part-time MBA 2007)
“For everything it is quite easy - no time is no priority. Yet I have found it worthwhile to make time for the activities of the alumni membership package. The events are planned and communicated in advance, and are very well organized on the day itself. I consider the workshops as a gift for myself, an investment in my further development. There are always interesting discussions with different (smart) people from other organizations who are having similar challenges. I therefore recommend the alumni membership package to you. Maybe on the short term there are more important things to handle, but for the long run this is definitely something you should consider.”
-Mark Tissink, (IT-Auditing 2013)
