Speaker Series

  • Pillar: Academic
  • Workload: 8-12 hours per week
  • Time: October – June

The Speaker Series committee consists of a group of four till six Aureus members, who organize multiple speaker events during the academic year. In order to organize a Speaker Series edition the committee has to acquire (inter)national top speakers. Besides, it is important to find a relevant theme that corresponds with the knowledge and experience of the particular speaker.

What do I learn as a committee member?

As a member of the committee you are busy acquiring (inter)national top speakers, setting up the promotion campaign and organizing the multiple editions itself into the finest detail. Furthermore, you will develop your communication skills in the acquisition process, your academic abilities in thinking of relevant speakers for economic students and your creative skills in drawing as many students to the event as possible. Finally, it is a big challenge to develop and implement an entirely new platform for speakers at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
