Opening plenary session by Maarten van der Weijden
In 2008 Maarten van der Weijden won Olympic Gold on the 10km open water swimming! After a very successful athletic career and having dealt with tough challenges regarding his health he chose to start raising money for cancer research. His most challenging fund raising event was swimming the 196 km ‘Elfstedentocht’ in 2019, an incredible achievement!
Maarten will tell us all about perseverance, motivation, ambition and dealing with setbacks. An inspiring person with a remarkable story and an example to many.
During the company case, you will be accompanying one company for a long period of time. Companies will introduce themselves before presenting a case to you. In the case, you can show your quantitative, social, communicative and leadership skills. The case will provide the perfect opportunity to experience everyday challenges which are faced as an employee of a company.
