Chantal ter Haar

This week’s journal, Chantal ter Haar – External Relations Officer

Every week a board member or consultant will talk you through a small biography, and more importantly, a little insight into their life, what parts of their agenda are devoted to time, and what parts aren’t.
I’ll start off with one of these weekly entertaining stories, but before taking you on a little trip through my weeks with me, let me quickly introduce myself.

My name is Chantal ter Haar, a self-named granny and student who just turned 26. I grew up in the beautiful city of Amersfoort, before moving to Groningen to do my bachelor in International Business. After getting my degree, I found an internship and a cute little house with 3 roommates in Amsterdam, where I’ve
lived for about a year when I suddenly felt the strong urge to travel the world.
With not much more than some savings and a backpack I traded Amsterdam for
places like Cape Town, Sydney, Uluru, Borneo and Bali. This fun sabbatical lead
me over 100.000km through 4 continents, 9 countries, and eventually back home,
ready to start something new.

And I sure did, I started both masters Marketing Management and Marketing Analytics, moved to Tilburg, found a job and joined TIME. I got interested in TIME because a friend of mine had done a similar project in Amsterdam and got me all hyped up about it. This excitement only grew after talking to some of the (old) board members, so I decided to apply asap. Luckily they invited me for an interview and later into their team, so
I’ve been part of the team since February now. As the External Relations Officer, I try my best to maintain an accurate and enjoyable social media feed and take
care of the acquisition period together with Ineke, our student counsellor.

As you can see, my weeks got a bit into a
fast forward position after coming home last 20th of January. With the acquisition period up and running, I’m running a lot of the times as well, both literally and metaphorically. However, I’m definitely enjoying my time as well, met many great new people already and of course cannot wait to actually go on our trip! Whenever I’m not busy with TIME, I like to spend my time on a terrace, on day trips with friends or having a nap, but one can always wake me up for (and with) a good cup of coffee.

Want to know more about TIME or our current project? Add me on LinkedIn or send me a message and I’m happy to tell you all about it.

Until next time!
