TEDxRotterdam - Jacob van der Groot - The downside of change

'Alles van waarde is weer loos' means everything of value is defenseless. A verse line on the top of a former ABN AMRO building on the Blaak states it. The bank has left the building long ago, but Lucebert's verse in green neon letters still dominates the city center. How defenseless is a bank? And what is true value? Jacob van der Goot is working with these questions everyday. For him there is a time before and a time after 'the day a train ran over the bank', as he calls it. The day it became obvious that ABN AMRO and Fortis bank were at risk to fall. On TEDxRotterdam Jacob van der Groot talks about the downside of change.
