About this event

**This event is in English and hybrid (live + digital)**

Real Talks is an initiative by RA*W and The Student Hotel to open up the conversation about taboos in the creative industry. Our aim is to inspire young talent, share insights and build a better future together. With different perspectives, more color, more opinions, more diversity, and more openness. Previous editions of Real Talks have discussed themes such as Stereotyping and Gender inequality.

So let’s have a Real Talk about raw topics 💯

🇬🇧 This session will be in English 🇬🇧


In our third Real Talks we will talk about the stressed, depressed and anxious creative industry by discussing ‘work-life balance’. What it means, what it is, and foremostly what we can do about it together. This session will be both live and digital and divided into 3 sections. The digital event will be streamed through one channel.



The first speaker is Jochem Bukman, psychologist at OpenUp. Jochem combines organizational psychology with clinical psychology to help reformulate challenges and to find what works best. He uses humor to lighten up specific issues but is never afraid to confront them whenever necessary within the process. His talk will teach you about subjects such as stress and anxiety, work performance, finding purpose, and lifestyle with the motto “To ask for help means to take charge of your life”.



The second speaker is Maxine Penney, culture manager at Mediamonks. Besides being an effective networker and natural communicator, Maxine enjoys people-orientated activities that radiate positive energy in which her goal is to enthuse others. As culture manager at Mediamonks she’s for responsible developing and managing D&I programs for Mediamonks in EMEA and APAC regions. Her talk will be about her years in the advertising industry and her experience with work balance while working for one of the holy grail accounts in advertising Nike.
