Holiday Cheer: A Christmas Party

It was time for our annual gathering, a Christmas party—a moment to relax, share and launch the Christmas season with friends and fellow HIP members. We try to gather as much of our group as possible and provide the opportunity to spend some quality time with no fixed agenda.

Back by popular demand we held our ritual White Elephant gift exchange. Everyone contributed with a gift for €10 or less, and all attendees went home with a funny or heartfelt gift.

Besides this light hearted exchange, we also shared a bit more of ourselves. Everyone told their New Year’s Resolution (or Resolutions!) and we cheers’d to achieving personal and professional goals in 2015.

We wrapped up 2014 and unwrapped 2015 – unveiling for you the diverse lineup of events and speakers coming next year for your professional growth and personal pleasure! Stay tuned and check out our Upcoming Events calendar. Hope to see you at an event soon!

TED Talks: Ideas Worth Spreading

November’s HIP gathering introduced you to an endless resource. Be it encouragement, specific tips on successful professional competences, daring or inspiration, at TED there is something for everyone.

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks captured on video (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages.

We had selected just a few clips which we showed and used to ignite the type of debate our HIP members love to engage in.  Either pragmatic or provocative, everyone had the opportunity to share their opinions, discover new ways of seeing things and learn concrete tips to help them advance in building their professional and personal selves.

Members shared just how much TED has helped them take huge strides towards their own goals and fulfillment. Find all of the TED Talks here: https://www.ted.com/talks
