*   One conference of choice outside of EU per year (airfare, conference ticket and accommodation maximum of EUR 2500)
    *   acceptance rests with Mine Heck and is a combination of factors: have you been accepted to speak? Can you motivate why that conference is important to you and to OlinData?
*   2 conferences in Europe (budget to be discussed)
*   Unlimited time to attend meetups and local (in-country) conferences
    *   subject to approval with Mine Heck. Factors for decision among others will be: Are you speaking? Is there a unique reason for you to be there?
*   One professional training a year (maximum budget of EUR 2000).
    *   for this we prefer close proximity if possible.

Catch-up calls are ways to get feedback on performance, just ask for it. No one bites. =)
Should you need one every few months or annually, just make an appointment with Walter & Mine, or whoever it is you wish to talk to and they will certainly be happy to give you some feedback.

With OD's 20% project, you may wish to take up a course/training of your choice that will be beneficial for OD when you use the new skills/knowledge you have learned. Or you may wish to take up a course/training as part of your role in OD.
OD is always open to having employees learn more and if it is beneficial, OD is happy to pay for your course/training fees, depending on the course/training.
Should you wish to take up a training/course, please do have a discussion with Walter and Mine before signing up as they are the only ones who can authorise you with permission and decide on whether OD will cover the costs for you.
