RSM Alumni Day 2014

 csm_Visual_vierkant_05d0ec361ersm logo

This year’s RSM Alumni Day, on Friday 11 April, is designed as a ‘high performance boot camp- a one-day power injection of knowledge and skills’. This fun, intensive day will boost your personal performance and your fitness to lead in your team and organisation! You also get a unique opportunity to strengthen your core network, build new connections throughout the RSM alumni network, and to experience the very best of RSM Executive Education.

Boom! Goes the Future.

The ‘final performance’ of RSM Alumni Day 2014, reflects the new reality of our working lives. Today, business is like an ongoing improvisation where speed, flexibility and agile thinking and action are creating the future. And the same goes for being part of the RSM alumni network: more than ever before, your engagement and energy are driving the future of our School’s education, reputation, and sustained top performance!

This interactive performance is a co-creation of Boom Chicago and RSM. It will hold up a mirror to the increasingly important role alumni play in the competitive business school landscape and it will create a fun and comedic framework for dialogue, discussion, and fresh ideas. Meanwhile, you’ll effortlessly learn the basics of improvisational thinking that you can carry into your work and your life.

Best Networking. Ever.

Every RSM Alumni Day, the networking is one of the chief sources of enjoyment and enrichment for participants from our alumni network. For 2014 the format really enhances this: because you and all the other alumni in attendance will participate in an identical programme the networking couldn’t be more stimulating. RSM alumni from all years and all areas of business will participate in these highly interactive sessions, so you get the broadest perspectives and the greatest potential for making new connections and strengthening existing friendships within the alumni network. In addition, we have factored in longer periods for socialising, culminating in the evening’s cocktails and dinner.

About TEDx Erasmus University:


TEDxErasmusUniversity is a university-wide initiative that wants to incite and excite the open-minded community for a unique event. Basing its structure on the widely known TED conference, TEDxErasmusUniversity wants to bring a similar experience to the Erasmus University campus.

Thanks to social media, the hashtag (#), which is a form of metadata tag, is now used more than ever. Users of microblogging and social networking services such as Facebook, Instragram, and Twitter, employ hashtags to search for comments tweets with a common topic and to engage into a conversation about this topic. As such, hashtags allow for grouping messages and making it easier to look for specific pictures and messages across social media platforms. Under the general theme #Think, we envision to gather and spread the most inspiring ideas encompassed by Erasmus University’s four focus areas: health, wealth, culture, and governance. We want to engage people to participate into challenging and mind opening conversations and to #think out of the box.

Leading Family Firms into the Future

The future of our economy is in the hands of family firms. The future of family firms is in the hands of the next generation.

By their nature, family firms hold vast amounts of intellectual capital. Their activities account for one third of Fortune 500 companies. In the EU, 80% of companies are family firms, accounting for 75% of all employment. In the Netherlands, 69% of firms are family owned (excluding self-employed entrepreneurs), and they are estimated to contribute to over half of the Dutch national product each year.

The role of the newly-formed Erasmus Centre for Family Business is to research this – and other aspects of family-run businesses – to promote the development and long-term viability of family businesses around the world. A particular focus will be on developing leader capabilities for the next generation.

“We want to increase awareness of the study of family business to the academic and practitioner communities, and highlight its importance to the economy. Our interests lay in the challenges involved in responsible ownership through teaching, development of educational materials, and outreach activities in order to ensure the viability of family businesses around the world,” says Scientific Director Dr Vanessa Strike.

The Erasmus Centre for Family Business (ECFB) launches on Friday, 30 November with speakers and a panel discussion exploring the importance of the next generation in leading family firms. They will address the question: how can we ensure the success of the next generation in leading family firms?
