Speaking at YOU Academe as part of the Foundation TRUST in Amsterdam

One of the founders of Foundation TRUST reached out to me last week to ask if I would be interested to come speak during their YOUacadame Live Q&A Sessions in Amsterdam. I got excited immediately and confirmed to speak on Sunday May 12th at their HQ at Albert Cuypstraat 194 in Amsterdam.

Alon Ben Joseph speaking at YOU Acadame about Trust

As this foundation is all about promoting trust and making the world a better place. Their own description is: “foundation trust – happy for no reason envisions a world where everyone decides to think and act based upon trust. Not to change the world, but to ignite trust. In each other. (Then the world will change.)” Read more about them on their official website.

Part of the foundation is YOU Academe which they discribe as: “At YOU Academe we believe that ‘trust’ is the key to becoming YOU: feel an excitement about life and its adventures; experience true happiness, inner peace, positivity and a deeper authentic connection with yourself and others as a normal state of being. ‘Trust’ is whatever it is to you in any given situation. We help you to discover it and apply it. The process is simple and systematic.” Read more about them on their official website.

We are going to have a freestylye Q&A Session in front of a live crowd and I only had to answer two short questions in preparation for the meeting, which were:

  1. To me trust is…
  2. So when I trust it makes me feel…

Curious what my answer are, attend the event coming Sunday 🙂

Attend this event by registering HERE.
Entrance is free and as they trust their visitors, one can donate an entrance free at the end of the session if they feel like it.

Speaking during Amsterdam School of Economics about entrepreneurship & University of Amsterdam

The Amsterdam School of Economics (part of the University of Amsterdam) is organizing for the fourth time in a row an alumnus & student event called: ASE NEXT! This year I will have the honor to be the opening act for the keynote speaker: Finance Minister Wopke Hoekstra.

Second, alumnus Alon Ben Joseph (MSc Economics 2004) will share his view on the first step on the job market, entrepreneurship and the importance of mentoring.

 

On the 27th of February 2019, for the 4th successive year the Amsterdam School of Economics (ASE) and the student associations SEFA and VSAE are organising ASE NEXT! An exclusive event for both alumni and students of the economics faculty of the University of Amsterdam. I have walked the halls of this amazing university from 1998 until 2003, when I graduated for my Masters. I have also been a memeber of SEFA since I started studying Economics. SEFA, the study association of Economics and Business (EB) at the University of Amsterdam, is founded in 1922 with the name SEF. In 1995 arose the name SEFA by a merger between SEF and EEFA.

During my lecutre I will share my view on the first step on the job market, entrepreneurship and the importance of mentoring. After my intro the keynote speech will be giving by the Dutch Finance Minister Wopke Hoekstra. During his lecture, Hoekstra will discuss his current challenges as Minister of Finance, such as investing in education, defence and infrastructure. How does the Ministry of Finance tackle contemporary issues of public financial affairs?
Followed by greatest career wins and mistakes shared by three other inspirational UvA alumni: Sergio Harrevelt (Business Analyst/ Controller at Atos Medical), Roelien Timmer (European Central Bank in Frankfurt), and Dolf Noordman (consultant at IBM).

Finally, you’ll have the opportunity to meet with fellow students and alumni over drinks afterwards.
