THIS IS WHAT MAKES THE DUTCH TICK
WMTDT is a one day workshop on the Netherlands, its history, inhabitants and language – a short, sharp and shiny introduction to life below sea level in the twenty-first century. It prepares participants for the challenges of living and working in the Netherlands and of dealing with the Dutch, but also for the many opportunities that this tiny but fascinating country offers. WMTDT is a hands-on workshop about the surprises that present-day Dutch society may have in store for you.
