The Dutch government aims to place the Netherlands in the top five countries in research, innovation and higher education.

As a result, competition will become much fiercer, the labour market included. Personal success will increasingly depend on more than just a Bachelor’s Degree and a foreign exchange. TalentInspiration.Com helps students and entrepreneurs in gaining the edge in sales by providing a four-class programme in an inspiring environment which teaches the fundamentals of sales techniques.

The classes evolve around four topics in sales: listening, speaking, creativity and closing, of which the importance cannot be underestimated. These skills will be taught in an interactive environment, utilising real-life cases and scenarios. Next to the cycle in Dutch there will be a separate cycle in English, which makes the programme accessible to international students at the EUR who do not speak Dutch. The English cycle will start on Tuesday 20 January; the Dutch cycle on Wednesday 21 January. The master class will be repeated in February. In addition to the sales master class, there will be a debating master class as well.

TalentInspiration.Com was recently established by Tobias Goedbloed, currently a student at RSM Erasmus. The venue of the classes will be Café Belmondo and adjacent Kennis+Koffie, a unique and inspiring location close to the Oostplein, dead-smack in the middle between the city’s business centre and the university.
