So much is happening in the flower industry. Bad things, like COVID-19, inequality between people, the way our planet is at risk. But also good things emerged, like growing solidarity and understanding what is truly important in life. Little things and big things. Like people's well-being. And how flowers and plants can be an important part of this. It's a big world and it is getting smaller through digitalization. Everyone seems to be online these days. More and more people from the industry know Thursd.

In my view marketing revolves around knowing "why": Why does someone want something, search for something or do something? Knowing the answer to the “why” question enables you to serve a customer optimally. I want the customer to be so satisfied with his purchase and the service that he comes back time and time again.
