Commissioner External Relations NL

My name is Rick Heugen and I am the Commissioner External Relations Netherlands for the 2016-2017 SCOPE | FOCUS board. I am 23 years old and in the last phase of my bachelor in International Business Economics.

I have been an active member of SCOPE | FOCUS for the past three years, during which I had the opportunity to organize several events. After enjoying my years as an active member, I wanted to see SCOPE | FOCUS from the other side. Therefore, I applied for a board position at SCOPE | FOCUS as Commissioner External Netherlands. In my opinion this board position is a perfect way to expand my network in a professional and social way. Moreover, I believe it will be a perfect opportunity to gain some practical experience parallel to my studies.

As the Commissioner External Relations Netherlands, my main goal for the upcoming academic year is to maintain a positive relation with the current sponsors. Furthermore, I will strive to enlarge the already extensive sponsor portfolio. Another goal for me will be to ensure a successful cooperation between SCOPE | FOCUS and the companies it is working with. Besides fostering successful cooperation with the companies, I also want to ensure that the companies and the students who attend a Dutch event of SCOPE | FOCUS are satisfied about the organization.

I am really looking forward to a great board year at SCOPE | FOCUS and I am ready for all the upcoming experiences and challenges. It will be a great year with my fellow board members and all the SCOPE | FOCUS actives.
