Alumni Meet up: BENELUX

Nigel Hayes (Host) & Adrien Duchateau (Speaker)

We're very happy we can stay connected this year and continue to hold Meet Ups for Alumni, albeit in a virtual format due to the circumstances we're all facing at present. The positive side of this is that you can sign up for various Meet Ups you'd be interested in joining, not just attend the one nearest to you, and connect with alumni from different regions and countries.


We want to invite you to join the Benelux Alumni Meet Up and stay connected with the EADA Community in Benelux and around the world. This Meet Up will take place on March 18th from 7pm to 8:30pm (CET - Barcelona Time).

Nigel Hayes (Senior Adviser), Amaia Elizalde (Alumni & Fundraising Director) and Melissa Handley (International Alumni Relations and Careers Director) will be hosting the session. Full event details to follow shortly.
