Derk Arts (Castor’s CEO) spoke at the Gezond Boerenverstand Symposium on September 11 2015, held at the NBC in Utrecht, about his vision for the future on data collection and data management, without being physically present! After he was introduced by Rob Konterman, a short, pre-recorded video was shown, followed by Derk attending live via Skype from Bangkok, Thailand, where he was on holiday, to answer any questions from the audience.
