It could be theRead more

What I do know is that I love growth, and progress, and always re-examining how things can be done better. Processes fascinate me; this was the case whenRead more
To top off 2019, the Brightlands Business Club gathered for the fifth time, in a fairy-tale environment: Kasteel de Keverberg in Kessel. The view over the Maas river was breath-taking, but so was the presentation of Hein Heijen, the renowned neuromarketer.
