Newsletter January 2017

Dear Members, It is a brand new year with brand new, exciting activities coming up for TTLA. We are sincerely glad that so many of you have been able to participate or support our activities this last year. We are looking forward to another semester, filled with events and opportunities! During the autumn semester of 2016 TTLA had a change of board and the transition went as smoothly as one could hope. The new board has managed to so far organize some social events, a LinkedIn workshop and a company visit to Damen Shiprepair in Schiedam. We are of course very content with all of these successful and well attended events. However, we are not satisfied yet! So this semester will be even more intense with even more frequent social events, further interesting and exciting company visits and a Career Day in May that you do not want to miss out! We thank you all for standing behind us in our work. Let’s get ready for a new semester! Best regards, TTLA Board of 2016-2017 Read more!

We were all cleared through the security and went into the office where Damen welcomed us with coffee, tea and lovely cupcakes! Consequentially we were, if possible, even more excited to hear the presentations Damen prepared for us! First the manager of the site told us about Damen, its history and the specific site in Schiedam. After him the head of the insurance and risk management explained to us about all the daily struggles and what-if-scenarios you have to take into account when managing insurances and risk calculations for such a highly specialized and huge company as Damen. Finally we got a presentation from Damen Shiprepair’s own inhouse legal counsel that told us a lot about the exciting legal challenges he faced everyday and about the advantages to work in the business itself instead of doing traditional legal work as a practicing lawyer. After the presentations we all got the coolest blue helmets and safety […] Read more!
