Interactive training session 'The thin line between ambition and work pressure'

13Nov2018 19:00 - 21:30


You are a recent graduate and fully focused on your career. Things are busy at work: although you try to perform to the best of your abilities, you repeatedly find yourself running out of time and losing your grip.

During the interactive training session 'The thin line between ambition and work pressure', offered exclusively to UvA alumni aged 35 and under, professional coach and UvA alumna Eva Janssen will guide you through a number of assignments and working methods designed to help you deal with work pressure and set priorities more easily.

Together with your peers, you will reflect on your own habits and pitfalls. You will be offered tips to tackle work-related stress and discover how you can manage your expectations, as well as those of your colleagues and your line manager.

Do you recognise any of the above situations in your own work? Take charge of your career and join us for this one-off training session crammed with useful tips on Tuesday 13 November. This will be followed by drinks and an opportunity to network.


Doors open from 18:30. Session starts at 19:00 and ends around 21:30, to be followed by drinks.


Binnengasthuisstraat 9, Amsterdam


Members of the UvA Alumni Association (AUV) and/or IANN can take part at the reduced rate of €15. Other UvA alumni pay €50. Those with a head for numbers will have spotted that it is more advantageous to become an AUV member at the same time. After all, AUV members benefit from discounts on a multitude of other events. Sign up for this training session and your membership will already have paid for itself.

Please note that the workshop may be cancelled in the event of a lack of interest. You will be notified of this no later than 30 October.

This training is part of the Young Alumni programme (activities mainly in Dutch).
