24 HRS CHALLENGE
At the end of the evaluation week, Jeroen de Rijke, a former elite and undercover agent, came to present his challenge to our teams.
“What is a go-to-market strategy for my team-learning product ‘The Undercover Experience’?”
Our students had 24 hours to work on a solution. On Thursday morning, all the teams had 15 minutes to present their solution in a video or presentation to Jeroen de Rijke.
After a short discussion and evaluation session, Jeroen chose year 3 as the absolute winner! Congratulations, year 3!
The prize: their own ‘Undercover Experience’ with Jeroen de Rijke, which for sure will be a great team-learning activity!
Jeroen de Rijke: “Thank you for letting me be part of the challenge! What a beautiful community you have and what a great experience! I got so much value out of this, I can’t wait to get started!”
Masterclass: Failing FORWARD
Leslie Abell has done profit turnaround globally within leadership roles for several companies like Perfetti van Melle and Ferrero. He now manages two Simon Lévelt Stores in Haarlem.
Business Mentor Marc Ernst: “Entrepreneurs are expected to be very resilient. Leslie Abell has candidly taken us through his successes and failures. Very inspiring!”
YEAR 3 IS ON THEIR LEARNING JOURNEY
From organizing an exclusive culinary festival with 30+ Michelin Star chefs to networking in the wine industry. From Singapore to Barcelona, and from the finance sector to education, the diversity among the individual learning journeys is inspiring. We look forward to hearing about everything at homecoming in April!
