Jungle Talks, in close cooperation with leading horticultural companies Koppert Biological Systems, Ridder Group and Agro Energy is currently selecting candidates for the second edition of the Pro Manager Mastercourse – Floriculture. The course (28 October to 9 November 2019) is open to future floricultural leaders between 25-40 years old from around the globe, with a minimum of 5 years working experience in a leading position at a future proof producer of ornamentals.
The Pro Manager Master Course also partners with Klassmann-Deilmann, Anthura, Wageningen University, Van der Valk Systems, Hortilux Schreder, World Horti Center, Koppert Cress, Logiqs, Chrysal, AAB Consultants and more.
