what is a confidential contact person and what can you expect from us?
Some of the board members of Asset are trained to be confidential contact persons. Within our board Luc and Sara both followed this training. We would like to explain to you what being a confidential contact person means, such that you can know what to expect. We are here to have a talk if you struggle with stress or have something else on your mind that you would like to share. As we are not confidential people but confidential contact persons, we will never share anything that you mention with any other party, but specifically will also never take action for you! We are here to offer a listening ear and refer you to the right person if this is needed. This could be for example the educational coordinator, but also the university psychologist. We can recommend or urge you to take action yourself, but after our talk this will be completely your own choice and responsibility.
get to know us!
Disclaimer: We are not professional psychologists and are not able to help you in case of severe mental issues. However, we are able to guide you to the right persons who can help you and are more than willing to do so!
Hi all, my name is Luc Geurts and I am a fourth year bachelor student and this year I am also part of the board of Asset | Econometrics for this year. I am an open, enthusiastic person who likes to know a little bit about everything. In my spare time I enjoy playing football and other sports. I also like to read and solve puzzles.
I like to listen first before speaking and think that it is very nice to be able to talk freely without judgment so that is also what you can count on with me! I do have some experience with mental issues so I might be able to relate to you more easily. If you would like to have a one-on-one conversation about anything, do not hesitate to contact me! :)

Hey there, I am Sara and will be the Internal Affairs for the year 2023. I lived my whole life in France, with my Dutch parents and siblings, until 2.5 years ago when I moved to Tilburg to study Econometrics. I got to get to know Tilburg as a nice city that now feels like home. When I have some free time I love to chill with friends, to read a good book or to cook a nice meal. When I have a free weekend I will go back to France where my parents own a farm. I will watch a good movie on the couch with my siblings or go outside to take care of the animals. My friends would describe me as sociable, caring and reliable. I can get along with a lot of different people and I am always willing to help.
If you feel like needing a chat or a listening ear during a walk in the woods or around a warm cup of tea, feel free to reach out to me.

"Hi, my name is Tim and I am one of the two confidential contact persons from Asset. I am 22 years old and born and raised in Someren, a small town in Noord-Brabant. I am currently enrolled in the third year Bsc Business Economics. But during this time I am also the chairman of Asset | Strategy & Logistics and a general board member of Asset | Tilburg where I fulfill the task of secretary. In my free time I like to play Tennis or Squash, go to the cinema or simply just have a beer in the city center.
If you ever feel the need to talk to anyone about anything, you can always contact me and we will try to find a time and place that suits us both. If you like we could do a walk or meet somewhere for a cup of coffee."
