Once or twice a year we organize segment meetings for our members. During the segment meetings we offer the opportunity to discuss current topics with colleagues within your segment. This time, the NAG deliberately opted to disconnect the segment meetings from the General Members' Meeting. There was often too little time during the General Members' Meeting to give sufficient attention to the specific themes of the segment meetings. The choice for this was also motivated by the feedback we received from you.
We would like to invite you to the segment meetings with (New Year) networking drinks afterwards on Thursday 31 January from 13:30 – 17:30. We are pleased that KLM Engineering & Maintenance (KLM E&M) will host this meeting at KLM’s Headquarters in Amstelveen.
Time schedule for the afternoon:
13:30 Welcome with coffee/tea
14:00 Presentation “KLM E&M business, human capital and innovation” by
Ton Dortmans, Executive Vice President KLM E&M
Gülcan Aygün, Director Lean Six Sigma, Innovation & Program
14:30 Segment meetings
16.30 Network drink
17:30 End of program
We have done our best to find a current topic for each segment that is interesting for everyone. See the result below. Soon you will receive further information about the content/speakers.
You can choose which segment meeting you want to participate in. Although most members opt for the segment meeting that is connected to their activities. If your company is interested in participating in multiple sessions, feel free to sign up your colleagues as well.
Airport Development & Infrastructure (AD&I)
The segment meeting on Airport Development & Infrastructure will focus on:“Sharing knowledge and network to support your business development activities”
How many European airports, civil aviation authorities, ANSP’s and cargo handlers benefit from Dutch products, consultancy and knowledge? NAG members have a strong international footprint and we believe this can grow further by sharing knowledge and network in a trusted environment. This segment meeting is a kick-off to that by finding out and sharing how big our collective European network is.
The AD&I segment meeting will have an interactive set-up and will work towards a “ticking boxes” session, where participants are requested to share their network/customers into a joint matrix in order to map the collective European footprint. This visualisation then allows all participants to have an insight on which other NAG member(s) might have insight airport knowledge on personal prospects. Taking place in a trusted environment, as participants can only profit when they also share, these meetings will provide a platform to support your business development activities.
