This means you can buy a lolly beforehand and write a card to go with it. During the social we will hand these out to the correct persons. So if you want to declare your love to your secret crush, want to send your girl/boyfriend a nice treat or just want to make a friend happy, make sure you don't forget to write your card and order your lollypop in time.
A lollypop will cost 1 euro and you have to order it before 2 February!

[Career Month] Lunch Lecture by Spindle
Tuesday 13th of February, 11:00 till 13:00, BB 5161.0253
Organizing without management
At Spindle the traditional hierarchical model of organization is replaced by a system called Holacracy. In the system, it is assumed that people work better if they're treated as adults and given the opportunity to organize themselves. The classical function building is replaced by an evolving system of different roles. People who work in roles generally have more responsibility for their tasks, which makes them more ambitious to reach the best result. Joris Engbers will tell about his experience with this brand-new way of working. Read more about them here.
