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 one of the following workshops:
We are introducing an exciting new format for personal development workshops, the 3-Step Series. The 3-step series will look at the skills and techniques with which you can improve your success rate:
- Step 1: Face-to-face workshop - practical and interactive half-day session
- Step 2: Practice – Over 6 weeks we will ask you to keep an account of your takeaways: when you use them, how you use them, what was difficult/easy, what were the results?
- Step 3: Small group review - About 6 weeks after Step 1 you will attend a small group online review
You can choose one of the following 3-Step Series personal development workshops:
A new format which is less interactive and more informative in nature: Breakfast session starting with breakfast (08.30-09.00 hours) followed by 2-hour session with alumni.
You can choose two breakfast sessions (08.30-11.00):
You will receive a certificate of attendance including the number of hours.
Workshops, 3-Step Series and Breakfast Sessions 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 no-show.
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.

“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 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)
