Frequently Asked Questions

I have reserved an optional spot (option) on a training programme and would like to register for that specific programme. How can I make my option definite?

When you want to finalize your option and register for a specific training programme, you can click on the link in the option confirmation email. This will automatically send you to the registration form of the programme. In case the programme is fully booked, you’ll be sent through to the registration for the waiting list. Because you already have an option on the programme, we will pair this to your waiting list registration and this will count as a definite registration for the training.

I would like to finalize my option, but I’m being sent to the registration for the waiting list. What does this mean?

When you want to finalize your option and register for a specific training programme, you can click on the link in the option confirmation email. This will automatically send you to the registration form of the programme. In case the programme is fully booked, you’ll be sent through to the registration for the waiting list. Because you already have an option on the programme, we will pair this to your waiting list registration and this will count as a definite registration for the training.

Is it mandatory for me to stay overnight participating in a multiple-day programme?

You are never required to stay the night, but we would recommend this. The training days are often quite intense and it helps to be fully away from home during the programme. Days without hurry, long commute journeys, things at home that demand your attention – we want you to fully focus on yourself and your learning goal. In addition, many participants say they have experienced the stay and drinks together with the training group as a valuable part of the programme. This can count for many more moments of reflection and awareness.

Is it possible to be sorted into a different training group than my colleagues?

We don’t usually check whether colleagues are part of one training group. In case you would like to change this, you can explicitly let us know when you place an option or register for the programme. Naturally, we will then take this into account. In case one of your colleagues registers for the same programme, we will contact you.

What is your Cancellation Policy?

When will you know whether a training programme will definitely commence?

Four weeks before the start date of the programme, we will know whether it will actually commence. If there aren’t enough participants enrolled into the programme at that point, we will contact you to discuss the possibilities.

Will I receive PE-hours for a training?

NBA registered accountants receive PE-hours when they follow one of the selected programmes. You can find a full overview of this selection here. You’re able to indicate your wish of receiving PE-hours during your registration.

Which programme fits my goals the best?

Please contact our Customer Service. They will connect you to one of our trainers or advisors in order to discuss your learning goals and the different possibilities concerning our programmes with you.

Do I bring my own laptop to the programme?

You don’t need to bring a laptop. During the programme, you’ll be using one of our iPads or exercise folders.

What is the size of the training group and will I be guaranteed that number?

The size of the group differs. In general, there will be about between 9 and 18 people in one training group. There will be a trainer present for every 9 participants. We only know how many people will participate a few weeks in advance. If you wish to be part of a bigger or smaller group during the training days, you can tell us in the comment section of an option or registration.

How long is a training day?

The start and finish times of a training differ per programme, you can find them on our website at 'Specifications of the Programme'. Contact our Customer Service for the exact times. In case you’re already participating in one of our programmes, you will receive the training times per email. Furthermore, you can find them in the Influence HUB.

Are there parking costs at the hotel?

Parking costs differ per hotel. For more information about parking, you can contact our Customer Service.

I would like to book a night’s stay prior to the start of the programme. Is this possible and how much would this cost?

We can  book you a night’s stay prior to the programme. The costs may vary per hotel. Please contact our Customer Service for more information.

What is the House of Influence?

The House of Influence is our own training location at the Bilderberg Hotel in Oosterbeek.

What is the difference between the House of Influence and the other training locations?

At the House of Influence, we bring together the best experiences from our recent years training in hotels. The training areas at the HOI are especially designed for our programmes and even the food and drinks are completely adjusted to you and our programmes. This way, we can easily play into the demand of you as a participant, so you can completely focus on your own learning goals and can get everything out of the training.

Is it possible to stay the night at the House of Influence?

The House of Influence is a wing of the Bilderberg Hotel in Oosterbeek. This wing is exclusively accessible for Bureau Zuidema participants. In case you’ve booked an overnight stay with your training, you will be staying at the Bilderberg Hotel and will be able to use their hotel facilities.

What is the difference between a waiting list spot and an option?

  • Waiting list: The programme is fully booked. It’s still possible to sign up, but you’re not ensured a spot as people who have reserved an option have first priority.
  • Option: You have found a training programme fitting your wishes. However, you would like to sleep on it a bit longer, or need an extra week or so to arrange a few things before you enroll. By placing an option on the programme, you reserve a spot on the training free of charge. We will keep this option for you up until 6 weeks before the programme commences. You will receive the exact expiration date in your inbox. Make sure you confirm your spot before this date, so you’ll be guaranteed of being registered for the programme.
