Personal Development Workshops
The aims of the Personal Development Workshops are to:
- Give you time to stop, reflect and gain insights on your own personal development – whether you attend as a leader, manager, entrepreneur or are mid-career.
- Bridge the knowing/doing gap and are therefore highly practical and interactive.
- Provide you the opportunity to work with other highly educated alumni who come from a wide range of sectors.
Based on alumni feedback, we are introducing requested topics provided by excellent lecturers. You can choose up to three of the following workshops:
You will receive a certificate of attendance including the number of hours.
Workshops have a limited number of seats to ensure alumni experience extensive interaction and personal attention. To reduce the number of no-shows without advance notice and to ensure alumni on the waiting list have the opportunity to attend workshops, we will charge a fee of €40,- per workshop no-show. These fees will then be utilized for supporting full-time international students at TIAS.
Do you want new insights and knowledge to stay up-to-date in this fast-changing world? TIAS is offering Inspirational Sessions with the latest insights on topics in three main areas; Leadership, Business Transformation and Business & Society. You are welcome to attend two evening sessions with the possibility to network afterwards with the speaker and fellow alumni members. You will be informed of the topics of the sessions, which will take place on:

“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 workshops 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)
