My name is Bo Havinga and I will fulfil the position External Relations in the XXIIIth board of the Financial Study Association Rotterdam. I grew up in Hilversum and moved to Rotterdam three years ago. During these three years in Rotterdam I finished the Bachelor in Business Administration at the Erasmus University Rotterdam.
In my first year I joined the student association RSC/RVSV and in my second year I played field hockey at Leonidas. This march I decided to try a new sport, which ended up being kickboxing. Besides, I like to go to the gym, travel around the world, hang out with friends and edit videos in my spare time.
During my bachelors I completed the RSM Honours Programme and I spent a semester studying abroad at the Florida State University in the United States. In these four months abroad, I completed the nationally recognized and award-winning sales minor. Throughout this minor, I realised that I wanted to put my sales knowledge into practice. The External Relations function at the Financial Study association Rotterdam (FSR) seemed to be the perfect place to do so.
As I am responsible for the external relations, I will visit and talk to many companies this year. This is a unique opportunity to get a glimpse of a company and an insight into the finance, accounting and consulting sector. Besides, I am responsible for several events throughout the year, like the Financial Business Cycle and the Investment Week.
This year will be different compared to all the other years because of COVID-19. This brings along new challenges and asks for a lot of flexibility. This makes our year a unique one and I’m looking forward to making it the best year of FSR yet.
If you have any questions regarding my position or regarding the FSR in general, please don’t hesitate to contact me or stop by at our office (H16-25) for a coffee (or tea;)).
