It is our pleasure to invite you to this unique 2 hour Masterclass on Leadership and Pitching by Bart Römer, director of the Netherlands Film Academy. Brought to you through our collaboration with the Inflammation and Infection (I&I) research theme at Aarhus University, Denmark.

Leadership – A crash course in how to lead. Not just other colleagues, departments, organizations, but – most important of all – yourself. Both in a professional and in a private context.

Pitching – Pitching is important. But how do you pitch? Where do you start? When do you start? How do you start? It all begins with a good and honest glance in the mirror.
