They are all the same person; Jan Heemskerk. The Dutch Hefner leads a double life; on the one hand he has the dream life of many (male) students, while on the other he leads behind the scenes of the commercial powerhouse calles Playboy. In the past years, he and the Dutch Playboy Magazine in general, have come up with many commercial content

for top brands. This including the latest Bavaria campaign shot at the Playboy Mansion. He tries to give an understanding of (one of) biology’s most serious topics: the differences and similarities between men and women. The self-proclaimed ‘All round specialist on all female matters’ will help us give an understanding of dealing with the opposite sex for members of both genders in the audience. This, together with observations from the Magazine and his personal married life will provide a good recipe for thought.

However, her horizon is broader than just hockey. Els was also involved in the disciplinary committee of the Dutch Golf Federation, the Dutch Olympic Committee and she


was the chair of the Nico Scheepmaker Beker jury. But her most impressive accomplishment is her role in the International Olympic Committee. Starting from 2001, she was involved in multiple coordination and evaluation committees. But her range of interest exceeds just sports.

Opportunities in International Trade Expeditors, a leader in the global logistics industry and a Fortune 1000 company, has opportunities for motivated team players who are looking for a rewarding place to work. The Council of Logistics Management defines logistics as that part of the supply chain process that plans, implements, and controls the efficient, effective flow and storage of goods, services, and related information from the point of origin to the point of consumption in order to meet customers' requirements.

As a logistics provider, Expeditors does much more than get freight from one point to another. At Expeditors, our job is to provide the critical services and information necessary to give our clients a competitive advantage in the management of their supply chains - from raw materials to finished goods sitting on the retail shelf. Expeditors' culture of organic growth and promotion from within, combined with a strong management team and unique compensation structure, attracts the highest caliber employees.

OUR PEOPLE ARE THE DIFFERENCE. Highly trained. Motivated. Focused. This is where we start. With people who are committed to their customers. With people who understand that going the extra mile is really just the beginning. • Attitude: A passionate, caring and winning attitude is focused on the basics of teamwork. • Resolute: Say what you do and do what you say! • Sense of Humor: Life's too short not to enjoy the work we do and the people we work with. • Visionary: A perceptive insight to the changing needs of clients, vendors, organization, and employees. • Appearance: Professionalism is at the core of our identity. • Confidence: We must believe to achieve, not only in ourselves, but also in our co-workers. • Excellence: Doing not just what's expected, but doing the best that's physically possible. • Integrity: Fairness, honesty, and dignity. • Pride: It's the personal commitment we make. • Curiosity: Be the type of person who wants to learn more about something.

Expeditors culture of organic growth, promotion from within, combined with a strong management team and unique compensation structure, continuously attracts the highest caliber employees.
