On the 16th of May, in collaboration with Rotterdam Partners, we are organizing the 4th edition of our popular Talent Nights. This time the theme is Healthy Balance in Work & Life.

Research states that having a greater life-work balance contributes to a better job performance and better mental as well as physical health.
However, these days people are the busiest they have ever been, which consequently brings a lot of stress and can even cause burnouts. Everyone knows that one person who has lost balance and is seriously overworked. Maybe you are that person?
In May at Venture Café our main focus is Health, Wellbeing & Food. Hence, during the upcoming Talent Night, we will tackle the topic of Healthy Balance in Work & Life. Join us on the 16th of May!

During the evening you can expect:
1. Keynote speakers
2. Career advise
3. Connections with talented people
4. Dynamic workshops to improve your application skills
& much more!

Join this special Thursday Gathering to connect with the innovation community, get inspired and receive the right tools to kick-off or take the next step in your career!
