PRACTICAL WISDOM The training on Practical Wisdom aims to challenge and inspire you to think about your personal ethics.

Monday 10 December

9:00 - 12:00

TrueVoice

As you grow older you may wish to also grow wiser, but what does it mean to be wise? To support your growth in wisdom it will be helpful to reflect on some deep personal questions such as: Who do you want to be? What are your values? According to which principles do you want to live? How do you relate to the world? This training helps you to see where your ethical pitfalls might lie and how to live a life of wisdom. Still, thinking about your values is one thing, but applying them in practice is pretty difficult. Practical Wisdom requires extra skills: such as willpower, sensitivity and awareness. A real dilemma has no ready-made answers. You will learn to view such dilemmas from different perspectives in order to arrive at more practical wisdom. As a result of using practical wisdom you may gain insights in your personal mission and a sense of direction in life.

PERSONAL BRANDING

Dutch Workshop

Finding the ultimate job, internship, projects (as a freelance professional) or clients (if you are an entrepreneur) requires three things. The first thing to do, is to take on the ‘experience mind-set’: being good is not always good enough. You need to take on a mind-set that triggers you to lead yourself in your professional career and to communicate and express who you are, what you are capable of and why you do what you (want to) do. The second step is to discover and describe what your qualities are and what your added value for others can be. Your qualities consist of your knowledge, skills, values and also products and services you can or would like to deliver. In the final step you start communicating and expressing who you are, what you are capable of and what you would like to do. Telling people, connecting to relevant people, sharing your knowledge and experience and behaving as your future self.

Trainer

TOM SCHOLTE The personal branding workshop will be facilitated by Tom Scholte. As a freelance HR-consultant Tom advises on and facilitates personal leadership and HR-development programs within organizations. Tom wrote 3 books about personal branding and also developed several online HR-tools to facilitate learning and development within organizations.

TIME MANAGEMENT

Dutch Workshop

Time management = Dealing with time wisely! Quickly copying your thesis, then rushing to another building after a meeting for an appointment with a fellow student and not eating a sandwich in between.

Dutch

Monday 10 December

That complaining teacher will have to wait until tomorrow. You will email him back. Do not forget! Oh, tomorrow, an exam, completely forgotten! Well, nothing prepared, bad luck. No time for it. How often does a day go like this? Too often? Then maybe it’s time to learn to manage your time. What is Time Management? David Allen is clear about the term Time Management: “You can’t manage time. You can only manage actions.” You can’t get 25 hours out of a 24-hour day. But you can make a difference in what you do in one day. There are various courses, tools and methods in the field of Time Management. You will learn more skills in planning tasks and activities, and you will learn to structure the available time purposefully and effectively. With your agenda as a starting point, you will learn to efficiently spend your time. You will learn to make choices in spending time efficiently, so you can reach your deadlines.

You will learn what kind of entities have shares and how difficult, or easy it can be to buy shares. Crowdfunding will not be forgotten. The key question is always; What is the value of a share? You can always calculate, but is this the same value as registered at the stock market? Most people invest in shares, but there are more options to invest. We will show more possibilities, so you can choose the best way for you to invest. Or to start getting to know this particular part of investing. At the end of this workshop you will know the fundamentals of investing.

ETIQUETTE DINER

Dutch Workshop

To establish professional relationships with one another we must communicate with the appropriate etiquette. When you’re going to a business lunch or dinner with recruiters, clients or partners, you make sure you behave properly; good table manners will open doors that the best education cannot. Like it or not, management equates good manners with competence in business and poor manners with incontinence. How convenient it is when you know where to put your cell phone during dinner, what to wear at a cocktail party or what to say at the beginning of a dinner. Confidence comes with knowledge. During this interactive workshop we provide guidelines for eating appropriately; dining in style and tell you all you what to know about dining etiquette, dress codes, conversation both verbal and nonverbal and practise these rules during this most pleasant dinner. Knowing and using good table manners is an important social skill. We want you to enjoy lunch and dinner meetings, establish a professional image to business relations family and friends. Program: on the menu: history of table etiquette, rules and guidelines during dinner, ABC table etiquette, hostmanship, attire dress codes and grooming, meeting etiquette, social sensitivity, nonverbal communication, attending a conference or meeting, and Mea tells you all you want to know about email diplomacy best behaviour and politeness.

THE ELEVATOR PITCH During this workshop, we will actively and dynamically work on presenting yourself. How can you leave a good impression of yourself in a short time? We will practice the elevator pitch for a powerful personal presentation. You should make sure you always have an elevator pitch ready, a short presentation where you enthusiastically tell who you are and what you’re good at. In the time of an elevator ride you should be able to present yourself as the ideal solution for the problem of your discussion partner. The elevator pitch can be useful in a variety of situations, for example, during a congress or a staff meeting, during parties or a break of a theatre performance. During job interviews the elevator pitch is valuable too. Who doesn’t know the infamous openings question: ‘Why don’t you tell us something about yourself?’. With the right preparation, you will always have a fitting answer ready. After this workshop: • You will know the idea of an ‘elevator pitch’; • You will know how to properly present yourself and strengthen your personal qualities; • You will know the tools and skills to naturally hold networking conversations; • You will be able to convincingly state your personal qualities.

LATEX LaTeX is a (free) text typesetter from 1978, which still is the standard in the academic world. LaTeX is often used for reports, papers, books, magazines and scientific articles, since it simplifies text and image formatting and offers unlimited possibilities for creating formulas, graphs or presenting data. Since LaTeX is a complete programming language, it is very easy to create your own commands and scripts, and often used elements can be automated quickly.

9:00 12:00

In this beginners’ course we will dive into LaTeX and you will learn how to easily create a report or other document. No previous experience, knowledge or software is required.

When you’re going to a business lunch or dinner with recruiters, clients or partners, you make sure you behave properly; good table manners will open doors that the best education cannot.

How convenient it is when you know where to put your cell phone during dinner, what to wear at a cocktail party or what to say at the beginning of a dinner. Confidence comes with knowledge. During this interactive workshop we provide guidelines for eating appropriately; dining in style and tell you all you what to know about dining etiquette, dress codes, conversation both verbal and nonverbal and practise these rules during this most pleasant dinner. Knowing and using good table manners is an important social skill. We want you to enjoy lunch and dinner meetings, establish a professional image to business relations family and friends.

Our memory is a real special phenomenon. Every second of the day it performs miracles. However, we do not realize that. Every part of our life relies on our memory. Whether we walk, study, relax or work, our memory is always busy. She archives, sorts and filters huge amounts of information. So why go to a memory training? Our memory sometimes lets us down. Making us question things like: What’s his name again? Where did I leave it? How was that again? etc.? In this training you will take a test after which we will explain what memory is, how it works, how to structure and how to improve it.

DEBATE: MAKING YOUR INPUT MATTER How do you make sure your input matters? You may be brilliant in your field, come up with the greatest ideas, but you’ll still need to convince your client, partner or boss that your solution is the right one. We’re here to make sure your input gets valued the way it should be. What do you think of when you hear the word “debate”? Maybe you consider it a dull affair, something for grey politicians or boring television programs. To us, however, debate is a highly challenging mental discipline, combining logical and rhetorical skills. It teaches skills that you can apply in professional situations, such as presentations, meetings or interviews. Furthermore, it’s a very fun activity, where both wit and preparation are valuable. Join us in this workshop, where you will learn how to persuade others, to construct your arguments carefully, and improve your public speaking skills. Discover how to captivate your audience, how to look and act confident throughout your presentation. Learn how to use emotion in debate while staying rational, and keep your speeches structured.

VISUAL COMMUNICATION TOOLS

Wednesday 12 December

Over 60 percent of our brain activity is dedicated to visual processing. This means our eyes protect us from harm, navigate us through spaces and teach us to recognise objects, people and locations. This remarkable brainpower can be used to communicate countless concepts without even using words or language.

18:30 - 21:30

Are you looking to give a punch to the way you communicate with teammates, project coaches and the outside world? Visual communication gives clarity into difficult systems and situations, even across different fields of study.

Yaël van Engelen

I will guide you through the tools and options to use low key visuals to strengthen your projects, presentations and everyday life. Don’t worry if you think your sketching skills are close to none, we will keep it easy. All you need is some basic writing equipment (preferably pencil and a pen/marker of choice).

YAËL VAN ENGELEN I, Yaël van Engelen, have been creating things since the age I could hold a pencil. Throughout the years I have tried and equipped many different techniques. My personal favourites by far are portraits and comic book drawings. Next to this, I experiment with many different materials and mixing them. These include (but are not limited to) pencils, copic markers, ink and pastels. In combination with my industrial design studies, this resulted in an interest to explain difficult technical situations in the visual language I know so well. And I will explore this together with you!


NETWORKING & SOCIAL MEDIA A serious orientation on the job market will make it possible to apply for internships, graduation projects and jobs more efficiently. Although there are several sources that can be used to orientate yourself on the job market, networking is one of the most effective tools to use. During the workshop, the importance of networking will be explained. Information about what networking is (and what it is not) will be shared and participants will practice amongst one another on how to network and how to prepare for a network conversation. Finally, the use of social media to network will be explained and demonstrated with a short LinkedIn session. Afterwards participants will be able to improve their profile and make better use of LinkedIn in order to orientate themselves on the job market. Participants can bring their laptop / notebook to pimp their LinkedIn profile on the spot!

THE ART OF CHOOSING How do you choose? Every day we make hundreds of choices. All those big (what will I study) and small (what will I eat) choices shape your life and the lives of others. But do you make the right choices? We will look at questions like: How can one make the “right” choices? How do you avoid making important decisions on the autopilot? When to follow the beaten track and when not to?

13:30 - 16:30

You will actively work on personal and practical strategies to help you make choices in life. The workshop is designed for people who are willing to reflect deeply, who are not afraid to challenge themselves and who dare ask themselves: “what do I really base my choices on?” You will first develop a personal vision that you can use to weigh your choices against. Then we will bring these lessons into practice through a personal case, such as a choice about your career, relationships ... or anything else. We will let go of how you are ‘supposed’ to be and help you find your own wisdom.

The Career Expo - March 19 and 20 The Career Expo will take place in Auditorium at Eindhoven University of Technology on the 19th and 20th of March. During the day 150+ companies will present themselves through stand, speed dates and presentations. Familiarize yourself with companies, converse with recruiters, and learn all about your potential future employers. Whether you already know where you end up after studies, or whether you are still in doubt, the Career Expo offers you the opportunity to gather information on various companies and to find the company that suits you best.

The Interviewing Days - April 29 up until May 2 Visiting the Interviewing Days is the perfect opportunity to talk to potential employers about possible career opportunities. Besides that, it is a great way to ask recruiters about the culture and work procedures of the company you are planning to work at after your study. The topic of the conversation during these Interviewing Days is entirely up to you, as long as it is career related. If you want to get deeper insights of a company in a practical way, then we also offer several business case. To get a taste of what it is like to work there, you can get your hands on a real life problem, provided by a company. In order to create a suitable atmosphere, this event will be hosted at the Pullman Hotel. Are you interested in this offer?
