Book me

Are you organising an event where PhD career development is being discussed?

Are you looking into options for career training at your institute?

You can book me for your event to discuss career development related topics e.g.

  • After your PhD: a career in or outside academia?
  • Broad professional development: How to get the most of your PhD?
  • My career: From scientist to entrepreneur in career development.
  • Your PhD, what is it worth beyond academia?
  • Unleash your PhD Power! About transferable skills.

My work is not limited to the Netherlands. I provide trainings throughout Europe and I am definitely open to discuss further away destinations.

Thanks again for the wonderful workshop at Radboud University this morning
– it was the perfect combination of interesting, insightful and fun! : )

G.K. – PhD candidate in linguistics @ Radboud Career Week 2018

Depending on your event, I can contribute by

  • giving a talk
  • leading a workshop
  • moderating a discussion
  • discussing along as a panellist
  • suggesting relevant speakers/topics
  • organising a (parallel) programme

I have ample experience in organising and contributing to PhD Career Events, including interactive ONLINE events.
