“An individual session with a good coach can make a substantial contribution to your career.”- Prof. Dr. Liudvika Leisyte, professor of Higher Education, TU Dortmund



“PhD students often struggle during their research and it sometimes takes just another point of view to help them. As I was in my second year of my PhD path, I began to struggle with what I considered to be motivational problems. I had the chance to make use of a one hour coaching session with Arielle. In this one hour meeting we discussed my questions that I prepared before. Arielle, by visualizing and rephrasing my thoughts, helped me understand the underlying problem of my motivation issues. She also gave me clear tasks and suggestions on how to change my situation. I followed her recommendations and found out that the suggested reasons indeed affected my motivation, and taking the suggested actions helped me find inspiration for further research. I definitely recommend Arielle as a coach!”

In the days of publish and perish in academia on the one hand, and the increasing departmental demands for teaching and project acquisition we often ask ourselves- how I can fulfil these multiple tasks and advance my career? Finding the balance between different demands and at the same time doing what you like in research and teaching seem crucial for the professional satisfaction. During the dinner we will discuss with prominent professors about their experiences:
1. Can you plan your career?
2. What are the success factors of becoming a professor in the Netherlands?
3. What are the major bottlenecks in career advancement and how to overcome them?

The dinner will start with the drinks at 17.30 where we meet and greet each other. The dinner will start at 18.00. During the dinner we will hear two presentations from our guest speakers and discuss the above questions. There will be ample opportunities to share your own experiences and learn from each other.

Free dinner will be provided. If interested, please register before 10 June by email: Please note your dietary preferences if any. The event is limited to 15 participants on the first come first serve basis.

In case you cancel, please inform the secretary of FFNT Ms. Edith van Eijk at to contain the costs of the event. We appreciate your understanding.

We look forward to seeing you at this exceptional opportunity to discuss your careers and learn from each other,

Liudvika Leisyte, FFNT Chair
