Time flies and it is December soon. The HIP Steering Committee wants to celebrate another great year of presentations, workshops and networking by inviting you for a drink at our annual christmas party.
Share the key learnings from the year and speak about your most important resolution for 2018. Have fun at the white elephant gift exchange. Choose one item from your basement, cupboards, or garage you have no use for, wrap it nicely and burst with curiosity on who will be the new owner. One person’s coal can be another person’s diamonds! Maybe you will be the next proud owner of that lovely scarf or those unbelievable kitschy set of coasters. But don’t celebrate too soon – somebody else might steal it from you.
While we don’t take an entrance fee please pay for what you eat and drink.
Let us know if you will be coming in this Doodle.
At the end of the year we met to celebrate another great year of presentations, workshops and networking. Enjoying lovely Italian Food and drinks we shared our most important take-aways or learnings from 2016. Some of us had founded their own business, others had changed a job. We all had some insights to share from the past year.
As every year we wound up the evening with our famous ‘White-Elephant’ exchange. We all had cleared our basements, cupboards and garages to find one thing we would like to get rid of. Some popular gifts changed the owner several times. One person’s coal made someone else’s diamond. Some gifts made us tell stories of the past when we first got hold of this item. And some gifts let us share some laughs. We all have some weird things at home.
We wrapped up 2016 and unwrapped 2017. Stay tuned and check out our Upcoming Events calendar. Hope to see you at an event soon!

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!
