Privium – Innovative Service Concepts

17 November 2010

Travelling is an integral part of today’s life yet often time spent at the airport is seen as a burden rather than a delight how it was back in the days when air travel was a sheer luxury.

Privium is an innovative service concept for frequent fliers which puts the pleasure back to travelling by offering exclusive facilities that provide speed, comfort and priority.

Privium offers fast and safe border passage based on modern iris identification technology and members can wait for their flight in comfort of an own airport lounge whose unique design sets it apart from traditional lounges: The entrance to the ClubLounge is literally a giant pupil that opens when you enter, leading you into a space of more than six hundred square metres, decorated in soothing shades of cream. The ClubLounge has every convenience, such as a well-stocked bar and a Light Energy Cabin where you can recharge. Or you can enjoy a comfortable reading corner with an open fireplace and other work spaces.

On Wednesday, November 17th, we will have an exclusive event at the VIP centre of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol: Sandra Wagemans, Premium Services

Manager, and responsible for the management of the VIP centre and Privium at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and Gerda Franssen, Account Manager Corporate Accounts, and responsible for the product portfolio promotion of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, will give us the unique opportunity to find out more about the innovative service concept called Privium and experience the relaxing atmosphere of the Privium Club Lounge ourselves.

The program begins at 18:30 and will be followed by a tour through the Privium Club Lounge with drinks and snacks. The Reception Lounge in the VIP will be the perfect place to gather our thoughts, gain inspiration, and network afterwards.

The Privium ClubLounge is located between departure (vertrek) halls 1 and 2 across from balie (desk) 9. <Click here for the map>

Registration and Guest Policy: Registration is required for members (15 euro) and guests (35 euro). Attendance fee includes snacks and drinks. Guests are allowed to attend two EuropeanPWN-Amsterdam functions per year. Please contact our VP Membership. <membership (at) europeanpwn-amsterdam.net>

What do we know about Global Warming?

1 November 2010

Speaker: Anna Farrenkopf

What do we really know and understand about global warming?

Oceangrapher Anna Farrenkopf will help us better understand what researchers know and help us put it into perspective. She’ll share wisdom from the 2009 Copenhagen Climate Conference.  This talk will be presented as part of the Connecting Women speakers series in Den Haag.

Do come to this presentation with all your questions about the weather, trading carbon credits or whether there’ll be too much or not enough water in 2020.

Time : 19:00 – 22.00

Address: Christus Triumfatorkerk, Juliana van Stolberglaan 154, Den Haag 2595 CL

Dr. Farrenkopf earned her Ph.D. in Chemical Oceanography funded in part under the auspices of the Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS) – Initiative, she is a past-participant in the Hawaii Ocean Timeseries, and co-author of Bermuda Ocean Times Series research.

This talk was originally inspired by sharing a plenary session at a local high school Environmental Science Career Fair in Portland Oregon with local TV weatherman Matt Zafino. Variations of this talk have also been presented in Wilsonville Elementary school to an audience of eight year olds and at the July 2009 borrel in the Hague.

Anna was born on a small island north of Boston Massachusetts in the town of Rockport. She grew up tending to both award winning flower gardens and racing sailboats on the ocean. After completing herannafarrenkopf chemistry degree, beginning a Ph.D. in oceanography seemed a logical way to pursue applied environmental chemistry. Early during her masters work Anna was invited to participate in the Netherlands Indian Ocean Program (NIOP) sponsored by SOZ through Rijksuniversiteit Utrecht (present day NWO and Utrecht University).

Her award winning research enabled many world wide collaboration opportunities in exotic tropical and sub-tropical locations such as the Seychelles, Hawaii, Oman, Kenya, Pakistan and beyond. For her post-doctoral work Anna travelled to Portland Oregon where she worked with numerical modelers to validate their 3 D simulations with real-time chemical sensor data. Anna came to the Netherlands in 2002 to innovate instrumentation for environmental research.

Of course we know her as the EuropeanPWN-Amsterdam borrel coordinator who often finds herself in the exotic locations in and around Scheveningen Harbor! Anna’s passion beyond networking with business women is to inspire and encourage girls and boys in the subjects of science, engineering and mathematics.

Fourth Bi-annual EuropeanPWN BoardWomen Monitor 2010

Almost 12% of board members is female

Women make up 11.7% of boards at the top 3001 European companies up from 9.7% in 2008 and 8.5% in 2006, the best progress since first BoardMonitor. Of a total 4,875 board seats, women occupy 571. As a result of quota legislation2 Norway remains at the top of the table in having 37.9% women on boards. Portugal, Italy, Greece, Spain, Belgium and France have more than doubled the number of women on boards; the introduction of Corporate Governance Codes together with equal access legislations currently under discussion in a few countries is having a significant impact, as well as increased shareholder and media scrutiny of board membership.
