Business icons came together at The Exclusive Preview in the Elicium during MASTERS TALKS: a spectacular inspiration show, led by journalistic moderator Toine van Peperstraten. A lifetime achievement award was also awarded: Businessman of the Year. To which iconic entrepreneur was it awarded? MASTERS looks back.

Ministry of Entrepreneurship

During the spectacular inspiration show, the audience went on a whirlwind journey through the Dutch top entrepreneurial landscape, as told by the Ministry of Entrepreneurship. At MASTERS TALKS, business icons such as Atilay Uslu (Corendon), Paul van Riessen (Quote), Rico Verhoeven, Tesla's Kim Liebregts and real estate man Cor van Zadelhoff spoke about their success and entrepreneurial journey.

Editor-in-chief of business magazine Quote, Paul van Riessen, questioned the audience about Dutch entrepreneurship with a serious Quote 500 Quiz. After a tough round of questions in which the knowledge about the content of the Quote 500 was tested, one winner emerged who walked away with a nice Quote 500 prize and a cool travel voucher from Southern Escape was also awarded. A trip for two people to South Africa.

Businessman of the Year

Real estate entrepreneur Cor van Zadelhoff received the entrepreneur oeuvre award 'Businessman of the Year' during MASTERS TALKS. Under the watchful eye of Dutch entrepreneurs, Van Zadelhoff was surprised with this honourable distinction. The prize was created by initiator Yves Gijrath, founder of business fair MASTERS EXPO in collaboration with business magazine Quote. The prize is an ode to entrepreneurship, to his industry, his social involvement and the entire oeuvre of this person. The oeuvre prize was designed by artist Mo Cornelisse.
