Meet Henk van Ess the world-renowned online sleuth & investigative reporter, during a live event from The Netherlands. Henk is highly specialized in open-source intelligence (OSINT) and will share his latest techniques during a 2-day boot camp.

Henk's course will change the way you conduct internet research, regardless of your job title. His unique mix of lateral and literal thinking will solve many of the issues plaguing researchers: tunnel vision and the tendency to focus exclusively on a single point of view, but also you will learn great new tricks. Here is an impression of the New York City course from February 2020.

The event will take place online on October 1-2, 2020. Social Links is a general sponsor of the event. Check below to get your 500 euro discount code.
