Event description
#WiTNetherlands | Story-Telling for Women in Tech

About this Event

Going back to work after the summer holiday can make you feel like you need another vacation. #WiTNetherlands gives you an opportunity to keep that post-vacation serenity and glow for just a little while longer. This time we are partnering with Deloitte for an evening of story-telling. We all have stories. What is your story?

#Storytelling is a human art that teaches us about the human experiences. As such, even subjects like technology and science are not outside the world of human experience and the art of storytelling. Everyone has stories to tell. Storytelling is a powerful methodology which can be used when connecting and building meaningful relationships. Join us for an evening of #storytelling and #networking and learn how to form and purposefully use your story to better position yourself.

Because of the masterclass that will be given during this event we have limited number of seats available, so buy your ticket and secure your seat on time.
