During the training we will explore how emotions are a source of information about threats and opportunities for organizations.

Janneke van der Meulen

Janneke van der Meulen has finished two master’s degrees at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. During her study she was also active with side-jobs, committees, and rowing at the highest level. Her next goal: extend her world title at the World Rowing Coastal Championship 2020. To perform at this level, she has a win-win diet. Everybody is (un)consciously acquiring happiness. Imagine that happiness is sitting on a chair which is supported by four legs (pillars): Health, Relations, Study and job and Finance. With HEALTH as number one with a bullet. Health is essential for your happiness, well-being, performance, and thus success!

Everyone has a different theory about how health is achieved and the best diet. It is a complex topic. How is it possible that so many different theories exist? Janneke believes that a significant part of the problem is that individuals who want to make
the correct dietary choices for themselves are faced with a deluge of confusing and
conflicting nutritional advice.

The goal of this workshop is to present you with the results of the latest in peer-reviewed nutrition and health research, presented in a funny way and a hilarious accent. To cap it all, facts and fables about the healthiest and the least healthy foods will be unravelled. Afterwards you are in the midst of the great secret of the few % who manage to become happy and healthy until a very old age. It is the secret that you will find in every success story. Because if you want to live an exceptionally good life, you will have to tackle things "out of the ordinary". It starts with doing your homework yourself. Because health and happiness are your own responsibility.
We are looking forward to meet you in Groningen!
