DDJ&

Who are you and what do you do?
We are DDJ&, a recruitment agency for arts professionals and cultural industry. Our mission is to break with the status quo in recruitment for cultural organizations by introducing candidates outside the usual suspects. We like to see boards and teams flourish with a strong diversity of backgrounds, networks, cultures, and ideas. We help organizations recognize and tap into this unleashed potential. By doing so, we aim to contribute to a more inclusive and stronger sector as a whole.

What are you offering for the B Night?
Tucked away in the heart of Amsterdam’s inner city lies a small marvel: Our Lord in the Attic Museum: a uniquely preserved seventeenth-century house from the Dutch Golden Age. In the attic of the Museum is a Catholic house church hidden. In the seventeenth century, Amsterdam was Protestant and the city authorities thought that other believers should practice their religion at home, certainly not in public. With its historical collection, the Museum shows what freedom of religion and (in)tolerance used to mean and at that same time the Museum links the history to the present and thus tells the relevant story of (in) tolerance. Even today, this theme is still very topical in our society where people from different cultural and religious backgrounds live and work together.

During a guided tour at this special location, we will discuss the topics of (in)tolerance and inclusivity: how did people from different religious backgrounds live and work together in the past? What is the current value of tolerance and inclusivity and how does this manifest itself in daily practice in the workplace? What are our goals in terms of inclusivity in the workplace for the future?

After the tour, there is an opportunity to chat and network while enjoying drinks and bites in the Museum Café.

We hope to welcome you here during the B Night!

MISTELI CREATIVE AGENCY x THE CHANGE COLLECTIVE
x OBRIGADO

Who are you and what do you do?
Misteli is a creative agency. Since 1994, we’ve had a soft spot for brands, companies and organizations that want to make the world a little better - that aren't all about themselves. These are people who take pride in fulfilling their responsibility to society - and we're equally proud that our work plays a part in this.

We provide strategy, concept, campaigns, events, and impactful design for all our clients. We develop visual identities, we design websites and, above all, we tell stories. But we can also act as a sparring partner for those who don’t yet know what their story should be.

The Change Collective is a collective of changemakers. We guide organisations towards the ‘new economy’. With the right vision, clear strategy and the courage to challenge the status quo.

With our fresh perspective we identify the key challenges and levers for fundamental transformation. In our interventions we always combine ‘the hard stuff’ (e.g. strategy, governance and process) with ‘the soft stuff’ (e.g. leadership development, team culture and change).

This is how we build sustainable organisations with a clear purpose, spirited culture and servant leadership. Together we rethink business to reshape our future.

At Obrigado we love coconuts! We grow, nourish and harvest them on our own sustainable farm in Bahia, Brazil. We have our own factory right next to the farm, to turn them into all kinds of delicious coconut products for you to enjoy. You could say the coconut gives us everything. And for that it deserves a big thank you, or as we say in Brazil: Obrigado!



What are you offering for the B Night?
Tired after a long day of fun and hard work at the B Corp Summit, but not ready to call it a day yet? Come join our relaxed tropical garden party!

Misteli will open her doors for you, together with The Change Collective. We promise you glorious drinks and bites, live music, soft lights swaying in the late summer breeze and a soothing tropical vibe. Perfect for some relaxed informal networking and hanging out with your B Corp peers.

If the weather comes down on us, we’ll move inside. Ain’t no biggie.

We hope to see you on the 23th!

Where are you? Surinameplein 10, 1058GP Amsterdam. The great thing about Misteli’s place is that it’s easily accessible with public transportation and bike.
