Following the master class by Rachel Zonneveld (managing director founders Carbon Network) earlier this week on the art of networking, her colleague Merlin Melles is the guest in this episode of Hotello Talk. She is the founder and director of founders Carbon Network (fCN) and also (co-)founder of Managers Carbon Network (MCN) and Pearlcard. Melles has a huge network in all kinds of industries that she likes to share with our students who come to do an internship at one of her companies. How does Melles feel about the recent period of lockdown? How does she foresee the future? And what would she like to give to our students? Interview by Joël Bosma.
