Successful alumni event
Approximately 70 former students and teachers from ILS met last week in Bank15 in Tilburg for the fourth Alumni Event. The programme included a presentation by Tom Palmaerts, owner of trendbureau Trendwolves. The Flemish trendwatcher told how he himself found his way into the world of trends after his studies. Second speaker was lecturer Els Dragt. She presented her book How To Research Trends in an original way. After that, Cécile Cremer, one of the first ILS alumni and founder of the Future Union, was said goodbye. According to Talisa Ong, who has taken over her role, for graduates, the Future Union contributes to their development as a young professional, which is important.
