The Vice President of the SCCN, Bob Juchter van Bergen Quast, attended an event of the Amsterdam American Business Club at the World Trade Center, Amsterdam. Discussions with other participants led to important opportunities regarding business development. Extremely interesting was the lecture by Prof. Christine Fitzgerald of Webster University about the importance of a positive mindset for creativity and the potential catastrophic consequences of a negative mindset. These findings can be applied easily in the field of business development. SCCN wishes to thank mrs. Kristien van Elteren, board member, and mr. for the invitation and for their hospitality.
