CFA Society Netherlands General Meeting and Impactful Communications Workshop

Event Description

You are encouraged to attend the General Meeting of CFA Society Netherlands, to be held on 19 September 2017 from 17:00 to 19:00 at the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam South.  The General Meeting will be preceded by a presentation on developing your communication skills, and followed by networking drinks.

You will have read in various member communications and press releases that the board of CFA Society Netherlands has been in discussions with VBA beleggingsprofessionals regarding closer cooperation between the two organisations.  The mission, vision and strategy of the two organisations are quite similar and our members work side-by-side in the industry.

Following a two-year period of intense discussions with VBA and CFA Institute, which included a steering committee, working groups, many meetings, and consultations with members and advisors, CFA Society Netherlands and VBA beleggingsprofessionals have concluded that the best way forward is a full merger of the two organisations.

On 11 July 2017 the boards of both CFA Society Netherlands and VBA beleggingsprofessionals approved putting the proposal forward to our members for approval in a special GM in September.

We encourage all members to join this General Meeting to learn more about the details of the merger, to discuss the proposal in depth and to review some of the draft documentation for the merger and the merger planning.   

We will then ask your approval to enter into the next phase of the merger process, i.e. to officially file the merger with the Kamer van Koophandel (Chamber of Commerce).  The merger will then be final later this year after the legal documentation has been formalised and there are no objections to the KvK filing.

The General Meeting will be preceded by a workshop given by Speech Republic on making an impact by using your communications skills.  This career development workshop earns you one CE credit.

17:00 Jurko van Veenendaal, Speech Republic, Let ME tell YOU SOMETHING

Jurko van Veenendaal, Speech Republic Coach
Jurko is a senior Speech Republic Coach who works internationally with members of parliament, political leaders, leaders of global organizations, managers and entrepreneurs.


As a Speech Republic Coach I am a constantly aiming for impact.  Magic happens when what you say or write causes a shift in the energy of a room. That is the moment you – or your company – make a real difference. That is the moment that change and progress are sparked. Experiencing that magic moment is extraordinary. We believe that everyone is capable of creating impact.


The formula is simple: let ME tell YOU SOMETHING. Increase your chances of impact in your communication by adding one or more of the following three elements: me, you and something.


To me, real presence means being in contact: with yourself, with your message and with your audience. As a singer, I’m well aware that the stage is the perfect place to experience that presence and create a connection. It doesn’t matter what you want to put across - a product, yourself, important research results - if you are willing to speak from the heart you can always create impact on your ‘stage’.


I am looking forward to exploring with you how to create impact in your communications on your stage.​
