"Young people are oxygen. And, as you know: no oxygen, no life. Today young people can develop and unleash their talents in many different sectors. And I want to convince them of one thing: our sector has never been so much fun. With technology and our mentality, there are literally no more limitations – except, maybe, your own imagination. So I would like to encourage young people to enter our beautiful sector."
