14 February 2014, Amsterdam – Research by Professional Women’s Network (PWN) shows that higher educated working women in the Netherlands, while carrying a large financial responsibility, take a passive approach when it comes to managing their current and future finances. Also, the research shows that three-quarters of the respondents see money as a security, much more than power or recognition.
It was an energizing start to 2014 at EPWN Amsterdam’s New Year’s Networking Drinks at the Double Tree Hilton, Amsterdam, 17th February. After an hour and half of networking and connecting, Chantal Heutink, the guest speaker for the evening gave a speech on New Year resolutions, achieving one’s dreams and moving out of one’s comfort zone. Chantal (social entrepreneur and winner of several enterprise achievement awards) inspired those present with a personal story of her journey to setting up a foundation that implements economic empowerment projects in Africa. EPWN Amsterdam welcomed many new members and guests at the event.
