RIEC Reflect & Connect
The location is a gift for the participants
The Regional Information- and Expertise Centre Rotterdam (RIEC) focuses on battling subversive crime. They connect information, expertise and powers of the various government agencies. To look back at successful collaborations, celebrate successes, gain inspiration and meet and network, an internal event has been organised on the ss Rotterdam. This beautiful location was a gift for the participants!
Interactivity on the water
During the day, the participants could attend various activities. For example, there were round table discussions with the various pillars and RIEC employees led by Mascha Bakker. Everyone could share their opinion and have a good conversation here. Karim Benammar was present as an interactive keynote speaker. The topic he covered was ‘Transformative Thinking’. We also had a connecting and energetic activity, namely the netwool act. Participants threw balls of wool at each other, creating a nice, large connection.
We made good use of the location: there was an interesting tour of the harbour from KRVE. Stories about the port were shared here and everyone learned about the largest port in Europe.
At the end of the event, we had a nice drink where the comic Rotterdam music group ‘Naar de Haaien’ visited. They sang some Dutch songs and made the day complete.
Networking on the deck from the ss Rotterdam
We ensured a successful event through the smooth online registration with Invitado. With this, the badges were printed for the participants on site. Many people from the RIEC had not yet met each other in person and many other participants were brought up to date. The gained new ideas and made new collaborations.
Everything was well taken care of at the location, so there was a good atmosphere. In the afternoon we could go outside and later on we went on deck! From here we had a nice view of the skyline of Rotterdam. To prevent the participants from going home empty-handed, they received a biscuit tin with tasty contents from het Rotterdamse Warenhuis, wrapped in the colours of RIEC with a thank you card.
"The day was very well organised, and as far as I am concerned, it is worth repeating!"
