  1. Hey Spikey,

    Ik hoorde dat je Robeco gaat verlaten om dichter bij huis aan de slag te gaan. Leuk!

    Heb je nog gardening leave? Ik heb namelijk van midden juni tot midden september sabbatical en een van mijn voornemens is om de vrienden en vage kennissen te bezoeken…. Dis heb je zin om af te spreken ergens tussen mid juni en mid juli?

    Met vriendelijke groet/Best regards,

    Geert Embrechts
