‘’LED’s Solve Together’’ on the 24th of November during the first LED Day of the year.
Trainers of ‘Expertisecentrum PLATO’ will help you gain a better understanding of people and their behaviours in order to improve your team working skills. This training will also teach you the different types of personalities that you may encounter when working in a team, and how to successfully work together.
These new team working skills can directly be put into use in the second workshop of the day. In this workshop KPN Consulting will discuss how to solve cases and guide you through solving some cases yourself. Lastly, Rien Herber will give a small lecture about the importance of case solving and team working for your own professional career. And of course, the day will be concluded with a drink and some snacks to allow you to discuss the day.
NOTE: In order to optimize the quality of the trainings, the day will be held in Dutch.

On the 29th of September our first LED Event took place; namely the LED-Talk: 'OverruLED by Robots?'.
This event was very successful and gave us some insight into how we can make the next LED events even better.
LED Day 1 will take place on the 24th of November. This event will focus on case solving and communication, because we believe that these are essential skills. We are already in contact with several different training agencies/companies that will try to help you become a better case solver. We will announce the speakers and date of LED 1 as soon as possible.
