The golf course as network place

The golf course as network place

On June 19, Maria van der Heijden, co-founder Women on Wings, enjoyed the RSM Golf Event in Nijmegen with almost 200 female business women from The Netherlands. It was the 5th celebration of an annual event in which women combine sports and business. Maria was invited by one of the sponsors of the Golf event, KLM. Next to a golf clinic, the day was full of meeting interesting new contacts and chatting with potential experts and supporters from a business perspective.

In the preparation for this day Maria was invited to share her thoughts about participating in this event. Lourens, a premier Dutch magazine about life style and fashion, published this article about female power in its summer edition of 2014. See the (Dutch) article.

“Through this partnership with Women on Wings, we want to enable more women to earn their own income that will give them greater financial means to improve their livelihoods. Economic independence for women means more children can go to school, more meals per day for their families and communities, and an overall better standard of living for them and future generations”
