Building on the engaging discussions of our previous Secret of Success events, we are – for the third time – bringing together successful Hungarians who have made it to the top of Dutch business, entrepreneurship, academics and arts. They will talk about their experience in an interactive panel discussion. You will get the chance to ask them about their journey and use their tips to boost your career.
