NRBC Florence organized for the Florence based members a very successful evening with Landmerk that took place in The Student Hotel in Florence.

The presentation of Jordi Wiersma, co-founder of Landmerk, turned, to the pleasant surprise of the participants, into a real workshop. Ideas were exchanged, new relationships were created as well as collaborations around the activities of Jordi Wiersma and his colleagues.

Landmerk is busy setting up a new training course for professionals coming from the business world and for university students and students in general. This fact gave the participants sufficient material to think, suggest and discuss about during the animated dinner that took place afterwards in the Bistrot of The Student Hotel. The participants really appreciated brainstorming together and this was big fun!

We warmly thank Jordi Wiersma and his colleagues of Landmerk for the stimulating evening and The Student Hotel Florence for its hospitality!

On the evening of January 14, 2019, NRBC Florence will organize its first event in the New Year and of course also our Rome based members are most welcome!

Stichting Landmerk is the topic of the first evening and it will organize in October 2019 the course “Rhetoric in Florence”, during which a group of top students will be immersed in the spirit of the Renaissance by means of reading classical books and performing speaking exercises. This journey will be a combination of philosophy, rhetoric and major questions.

Jordi Wiersma, co-founder of Landmerk, will hold a presentation during the evening of January 14, 2019, explaining what Landmerk stands for and how his Foundation is involved in special rhetoric courses for top students: Landmark teaches young thinkers how to study, speak and write about big questions at a high level.

Of course, we will also raise a glass to the New Year on January 14!
Information on the location will follow soon.

In the meantime

Save the Date!

We would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy holiday season and a healthy, successful and prosperous New Year!
