Eliza Spee – Programme Manager
My name is Eliza Spee, a Dutch IBA graduate and current MSc Marketing Management student. This year, I will take on the role of Programme Manager at WBN. It means that I will be responsible for WBN’s flagship initiative: the WBN Mentorship Programme.
The initiative aims to bridge the gap between the university and the work floor by hosting mentoring sessions between mentees and mentors. The pairs could opt for both personal and professional guidance and should aim to establish a bond of support and trust. My main aim is to have the programme function smoothly, thereby ensuring meaningful relationships between the pairs and hosting events surrounding the initiative that contribute to the guidance provided by the mentors.
Regina Csóti – Media Manager
Hi everyone! My name is Regina Csóti, I’m Hungarian and I am currently completing a master’s degree in Marketing Management at Erasmus University Rotterdam. I’m the Media Manager this academic year and I cannot wait to work on all the exciting projects I see ahead!
In this role, I am the one behind creating part of the visual content for social media (especially photos of our events), designing and developing the website, creating and sending out newsletters to update our community, and managing activities connected to the podcast. The main goal of the media committee is to support the digital backbone of the association: it thrives to create and maintain communication channels in a creative way to provoke thoughts, foster meaningful connections, and promote social and professional opportunities. Apart from committee-related interests, I love travelling, visiting museums, reading, yoga and going out with my friends. Hope to see you soon at one of our events or in one of our committees!
