TEDxDelftWomen would not take place if it were not for the support of our outstanding sponsors. They share the spirit of TED’s mission of “ideas worth spreading”.
The Public Affairs Academy is one of the sponsors for TEDxDelftWomen 2015. We’d like to introduce this organization to you, and thank them for their support and contribution. We asked Marielle van Oort, founder of the Public Affairs Academy to share some insights:
1) What is your company’s name, and what do you do?
The Public Affairs Academy is a knowledge platform. We educate professionals in the fields of public affairs, lobby and advocacy. By organizing seminars, workshop, trainings and coaching on all levels, we make the subjects approachable and comprehensible for everyone interested in public affairs, lobbying and advocacy. We help our audience build and then hone their skills and always make sure that everyone can have a seat at the discussion table.
2) What is your company’s mission/vision?
It is the mission of the Public Affairs Academy to be the platform for knowledge in the fields of public affairs, lobbying and advocacy. Through our many seminars, workshops, trainings and coaching, we provide knowledge and discussions on current and relevant topics. As experts in the field, we share our knowledge and help others in sharing theirs. The growing network of professionals surrounding the Academy forms a web of knowledge and expertise that we use to help others learn and benefit from.
3) Why did you choose to sponsor TEDxDelftWomen?
The Public Affairs Academy took the opportunity to sponsor TEDxDelftWomen because we believe in building platforms for women to express their expertise and learn from each other. By creating a platform where people can exchange their experiences and help each other learn, we can facilitate their learning and further growth. TEDxDelftWomen brings women together from many different walks of life and allows them to become more than they were.
4) What do you see in common between your company and TEDxDelftWomen?
There are many shared values between TEDxDelftWomen and the Public Affairs Academy. We believe both are platforms for the sharing of knowledge and experience and the coming together of professionals committed to furthering their own and other’s issues. This sharing of knowledge and experience happens on many levels and there is openness for people from all walks of life.
Just as TEDxDelftWomen tries to give experts a stage to share with an audience their understanding, the Public Affairs Academy collaborates with experts in the field to bring the most up-to-date and cutting-edge information to our own audience both in the room and over our social media channels.
But we also make sure that our audience has the opportunity to interact and discuss with the experts in order to personalize their learning experience. In that shared belief we feel that TEDx Delft Women and the Public Affairs Academy can both enrich the learning experience of their audiences.
