NL Alumni ‘Toast on the West Coast’ online event


On behalf of the Dutch universities, the Netherlands consulate general in San Francisco and Holland in the Valley, we are happy to invite you to the NL alumni ‘Toast on the West Coast’ event on Thursday 28 January from 8 – 9.30 PM (PST).

We look forward to proposing a toast to 2021 with you! But before that we have an interesting programme for you which starts off with a word of welcome by the Dutch Consul General, Dirk Janssen. We will continue the programme with an inspiring keynote speech by TU Delft alumnus, entrepreneur and TEDx speaker, Onno Faber, who also lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area. During the breakout sessions following the keynote, you will be able to catch up on news and developments from your alma mater. Then it is time to raise the glass to the new year together followed by a digital ‘borrel’ to (re)connect with your fellow alumni in smaller groups.
