After a 2,5 year pause due to Covid-19, Jungle Talks was able to select another group of managers between 25 and 40 years old to represent international 'future proof' floricultural companies. These managers are currently traveling around the Westland region and will visit GreenTech and Flower Trials this week. In addition, they will also visit Royal Flora Holland, the Dutch Flower Group, and the Floriade.
The Mastercourse Floriculture is powered by Jungle Talks in close cooperation with leading providers of knowledge and technology from the Netherlands. The course kicked off last week, and the participants were immersed in a wealth of horticultural knowledge and experience provided by partners Koppert, Ridder Growing Solutions, Hortilux Schrèder, Logiqs, Horticoop, Dümmen Orange, Horti XS, Letsgrow, Van Krimpen and Van der Valk Horti Systems.
Cooperating companies' directors are receiving the participants and will discuss merely strategy and vision, not so many products or services. Initiator Ed Smit is pleased to conclude that after the first week, both participants, as well as partners, were more than ready to meet and not only exchange knowledge and experience but, above all, share their views on the future and inspire each other on multiple levels.
"Every Mastercourse is an intensive experience, for me as an organizer, but also the participants and partners involved, but I can already see it was worth it again this year, and we hope to continue now Covid-19 seems to be kept at bay, at least during the summer months in Europe," says Ed Smit. Jungle Talks and the course participants are especially looking forward to tomorrow because three participants in the Mastercourse, Chris Rocheleau from the United States (ForemostCo.), Pablo Bazzani (Plazoleta) from Colombia and Matyas Bartha (Silvervase), also from the USA, are the three finalists for the AIPH' Young International Grower of the Year Award.'
