TEP Talk Josette Dijkhuizen: Where do knowledge, skills, and character stand out more than in entrepreneurship?

Many of us are familiar with great entrepreneurs like Richard Branson and Elon Musk, but who has heard of Ziad and Saba? Josette Dijkhuizen introduces us to an unknown group of entrepreneurs who are deploying their knowledge, skills and character in running their own company and in increasing the wellbeing of their community.

Josette Dijkhuizen studied Management- and Organization Studies at Tilburg University. She did PhD research on stress, happiness, and subjective success as experienced by entrepreneurs. She works as an Honorary Professor of Entrepreneurship Development at the Maastricht School of Management. Josette coaches and advises entrepreneurs and boards of companies on ‘entrepreneurship’: strengthening entrepreneurial skills and practical advice on how to make an organization more efficient and effective, and more innovative. Josette Dijkhuizen has written several books.

Josette Dijkhuizen is the second speaker in the series of TEP (Tilburg Educational Profile) Talks that the Project Group for the Implementation of the Tilburg Educational Profile will be organizing in the months to come.
