VENUE Christmas dinner 2017

Grand Hotel Huis ter Duin

In 1880 the local population in Noordwijk depended on fishing. The then mayor, Pické, thought that Noordwijk had more to offer than just fish. An elegant seaside resort would result in a better catch. In 1883 Pické broke ground on the highest point of the dunes and the Grand Hotel Huis ter Duin was opened in 1885..

In 1887 the textile merchant Heinrich Tappenbeck purchased the Badhotel Huis ter Duin with six hectares of land. Trappenbeck's Huis ter Duin mainly aimed at high level guests. Members of the Dutch Royal House and members of the Belgian Royal Family regularly stayed at Huis ter Duin.

The level was retained but competition increased on the coast. In the 1960s the hotel was sold and then resold to a project developer that wanted to demolish the complex. The city council of Noordwijk rejected those plans, after which the hotel came into the hands of the current owner. In 1984 the Grand Hotel Huis ter Duin was reopened by Princess Margriet after renovations and an extension. In January 1990 a large part of the hotel was destroyed by fire. During reconstruction an efficient, imposing and maximally secure hotel was designed that meets the highest standards of guests that visit or stay in the hotel.

Today Grand Hotel Huis ter Duin consists of two parts: the Grand Hotel and the Nouvel Hotel. The Grand Hotel survived the fire in 1990 and has five floors, of which four are equipped with hotel rooms. The Nouvel Hotel sprung up after the fire and consists of 11 floors, of which nine are equipped with hotel rooms.

Training day Personal Branding with Nancy Poleon

POSITION YOURSELF AS A TOP BRAND!

A personal brand statement also for an assistant? Yes, of course!

Your personal brand statement was the topic of the IMA event on 4 November at the beautiful location De Ruwenberg (www.deruwenberg.nl). After a warm welcome with coffee, it was time for the workshop. Nancy Poleon, our trainer, started her company BrandedU a few years ago. She is a real power woman, specialized in personal branding for women. Her motto is ‘Rock your personal brand’. And yes, she is familiar with the life of rock ‘n roll as she has worked in the music business for many years. Many of the anecdotes she uses in her presentation originate from her experience in the music business. The workshop was not just listening to the presenter but working towards your own personal brand statement. At the beginning we were shown 10 important points we should focus on when writing your statement, the first one and probably a good start is: Know what you want to do and make your authenticity visible. The workshop was not just listening to the presenter but working towards your statement. Where do you want to be in 5 years? What are your limiting thoughts? What is a good personal brand statement? Is it your style? We were also asked to sit next to somebody we do not know very well. A great idea, different views and a good way to get to know people. At the end several persons did have their personal brand statement, but for most of us it is still a work in progress. Fortunately, we had a good lunchbreak as well as coffee breaks. A good opportunity to network with familiar faces but also with the new IMA members and guest (maybe future IMA members?). Many of the attendees used the opportunity to have a new profile photo taken by our own IMA-NL photographer, Sandra Hassing. A new statement, a new photo. All in all, it was a very interesting event with food for thought for the way home but most certainly also for the coming weeks.

Nancy Poleon

As a Marketing Manager I have worked years in the music business where I was responsible for smaller to largers artists. I enjoyed the work but wanted that the success of branding also became available for ambitious entrepreneurial women. With a strong network behind me in which I could include these women I started BrandedU.

The experience, knowledge and branding expertise from the music world I bring to you as management assistants, to make you shine in your career. I want to see you grow into independent women with real success. It's going to rock. I promise you. I meet you personally on 4 November !
