Meet Your Peers

On Thursday August 30th the National Committee of IMA Netherlands not only invites its members but also you - as an office professional - to our speed dating and summer networking drinks 'Meet Your Peers' at Hotel De L'Europe in Amsterdam.

Speed dating is a fast, active and easily accessible way to get to know each other and expand your network. It provides unexpected encounters, refreshing ideas, hidden talents, special collaborations and a larger network. By actively engaging in conversation, you come to surprising, inspiring and fun conversations and you will get to know your peers even better, make real contact and exchange your experiences. It is also the ultimate way to introduce your colleagues and/or business relations to IMA in an informal way.
