On the 18th of October one of our members will again shed some more light on a major event within their business during the 4th Rot.Jong evening college. Compared to the morning colleges, these colleges delve deeper into the areas in which our members operate and excel. It therefore presents a great opportunity to learn more about the other companies!   The 4th college will be hosted by PwC and will be held at de Nieuwe Poort, on the 18th of October, starting at 18:15. The college will last until approx. 19:45, but afterwards there will be plenty of time to have a nice discussion while enjoying a drink, a snack and good company.
