The Erasmus (online) Alumni Lectures are a monthly series of topical and engaging lectures by inspiring Erasmus University Rotterdam alumni. On the 15th of October 2020, the topic of discussion are the American Elections.

We are proud to announce the speakers for this lecture:

  • Karlijn van Houwelingen

Alumna of the Erasmus School for Social and Behavioural Sciences and New York based US correspondent for one of the largest Dutch newspapers, AD.

Karlijn will discuss the “best practices” of 4 years Trump. Has Trump been successful? Has Trump lived up to the expectations? What will the consequences of the economic recession due to COVID be for Trump with regards to the possibilities of being re-elected?

  • Ody Neisingh

Ody graduated from the Erasmus School of Law in 2003 and is currently responsible for Public Affairs at WOMEN INC. Ody is also the author of the (yet to be released) children’s book “My mother is Prime-Minister”.

In her lecture, Ody will speak about the possibility that the United States of America will get their first female Vice-President if Joe Biden gets elected and about why so very few people believe that women could successfully fulfill the position of (vice-) president of the United States

  • Mark Schipper

Mark has a masters degree in Business Administration from Erasmus University Rotterdam and is now Futurist, Trendwatcher, Professional Speaker and Founder of freshmark.

In his lecture, Mark will share his vision on the profile of future American Presidents. Will Kanye West ever be President of the United States of America? What is in store for us in the years to come? How crazy can it get and what role does the media play in this.

The lecture will be hosted by moderator Geert Maarse.
