Jong Rabo Introduction Week: Register here as non-member

Learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else.”

This year we’ll do things differently! In a year that is strongly influenced by Covid-19 connectivity is key. That’s why we’ve decided to deliver the JongRabo Congress 2020 as a digital event. During these difficult and challenging times a digital congress is the best way to stay (globally) connected and to bring the JongRabo community together. Under the guise of “go bigger or go home” we’ve also decided to make this event accessible for all the JongRabos worldwide.

The congress consist of three key elements: collaboration, personal development and vitality. If you apply these key elements workwise at Rabobank and in your private life, you most definitely stay connected. You will not only stay connected with yourself but also together.

Would you like to stay connected not only with yourself but also with Rabobank? Than make sure you’ll attend the digital congress on the 11th of September. All the sessions indicated in our program will be based on Central European Time (CET). In the morning we’ll kick-off with an offline program. In the afternoon we’ll take steps to a next level and go globally digital. Be amazed by our digital workshops and guest speakers.

Sometimes we neglect ourselves or we don’t tell our own story because we are afraid, ashamed or some other reason. By telling your personal story you can help others because they recognize or can connect with your story. It creates connectivity and trust. In this workshop you will learn more about storytelling, visualisation and how to create impact with your story.
