*Important Announcement*

Unfortunately Petra Fisher is unable to attend our event this evening due to illness.

Fear not! The wonderful Renée Veldman-Tentori from Zestee Social Media has very kindly agreed to talk on the topic of LinkedIn. Not only is Renée a social wizard when it comes to online presence, she is currently starting to organise LinkedIn Local in The Hague!


First impressions are made online.


Your LinkedIn Presence needs to nail that first impression, even when you are asleep!

When your dream client visits your LinkedIn they need to KNOW “This is the person I’m looking for”. Everything resonates. The tone, the style, your experience and your skills. You’ll only be approached by people YOU love working with! All others probably run a mile and that is totally cool.

In this one hour presentation you will be quizzed on your current LinkedIn knowledge, you’ll be challenged on some beliefs, you will have fun, you might even win a prize… Above all, you will learn how to make sure your LinkedIn Presence is Fully Future Focused.

Instead of our usual Member Highlight, Ebere Akadiri will be introducing us to the Rise & Lead Mentoring Circles program, with whom the WBII are partnering!


The Rise and Lead Mentoring Circles are peer-led and facilitated quarterly leadership conversations focused on uncovering your untapped potential and navigating through professional and personal challenges. In these circles you get the support you need to step out of your comfort zone, find your voice, get visible and achieve your business goals in a short amount of time.

This is an invitation-only gathering where founders, executives, professionals, and industry leaders can engage in meaningful conversation and unleash their hidden potential.

We cover topics ranging from thought leadership, management and leadership skills, mentorships and sponsorships, how to wield power and influence, using technology to amplify our voices, overcoming barriers, and creating a strategic vision for long-term career and business success.

We create a safe space where you can ask questions and receive wise answers. You can join either our corporate circle or founder’s circle.
