If getting together in-person isn’t possible, let’s meet virtually!
On Thursday June 4th at 20.00 (CEST) you are invited to join alumni from your city as well as other parts of Switzerland for a special online event and borrel for our local DEAN* communities on Zoom. Please register via this online form.
The interactive programme includes brief university updates, followed with a short talk by TUD alumna Bryony Jansen- van Tuyll van Serooskerken on challenges and opportunities of circularity in the global fashion industry. After working as a consultant on projects focused on growth strategies, Bryony decided to incorporate sustainability as a key component of her work. In 2018, she co-founded Good Brand Guru which facilitates knowledge sharing among sustainability professionals in the fashion industry.
Per tradition, our gathering concludes with a virtual borrel (BYOB) where you and fellow alumni living in Zurich, Geneva and other cities across Switzerland will be mixed with each other to maximize interactions and stimulate conversations! Make sure to also bring some snacks and drinks for the borrel!
Why are your Alumni Offices organizing this online event?
Alumni networks such as DEAN can be extremely useful resources for tapping into fellow alumni during crisis periods for advice, contacts and support particularly. The new online event format has been developed to enhance local connections between alumni and is an addition to existing channels like the Linkedin Group Switzerland, and just recently created city based WhatsApp Groups.
What can you expect?
This event follows other successful virtual events hosted over the past 8 weeks for alumni in the Nordics, Spain, France, Germany, & East Coast USA/Canada. Here are some comments from alumni who have joined:
“I thoroughly enjoyed participating, getting to meet others in my area, and meeting everyone else from across the eastern-half of North America and NL! It was a great escape from current times with stay-at-home orders, and not being able to travel. I look forward to participating again in the future”
"Thanks very much. It was a very good experience to be able to link up with a group of people with the same background, same interest in France. Hope we will have more often such an opportunity! The event was well organised, dynamic and participative."
"Great job! Unbelievable attention to detail made it better, including the idea/risk-taking of the borrels, the group facilitation, and the comprehensive follow-ups including survey, attendee list and especially WhatsApp local groups. Congrats to all who organized it!"
To join this event register via this online form. Note that we have a maximum capacity of 100 participants for this activity – if necessary a waiting list will be created. All registrations are taken care of by TU Delft Alumni Relations.
Please also complete the form if you are unable to participate but would still like to be added to a local alumni WhatsAppp group in your city.
