While Floris’ Meijers life was going downhill, it’s just that what makes him reach the top.

While actually going downhill as a professional free style skier, Floris Meijer (1989) broke his back some seven years ago. “While flying mid-air taking a risk full free style ski-jump, in a split second I knew I was flying too high and too far to execute the jump and land it to perfection. Now paralysed from the waist down, Floris a Paralympic athlete, is on route to the Beijing 2022 Paralympics. Surely being a professional skier before his accident, getting all the help an athlete needs, now as before he states: “my perseverance to become as independent as can be is what makes me feel a human being again. A person first, handicapped for sure, but with the ability to reach the top.”

TEDxVenlo

Feeling the need to innovate, to get inspired and to feel continuous progress? Together we will bring innovations to the next step! In November 2020 our TEDxVenlo will take place. During this event we want to break through borders, between countries, industries, enterprises and people, to connect valuable innovations and inspirational people. We strive to inspire people to rethink their ideas, beliefs and opinions so that collaboration between people and organizations will boost innovation.

By organizing TEDxVenlo and several partner-events we believe we can strengthen the ideas and opinions about this region. It is our ambition that this region ultimately will be embraced as a region for innovation, for working and for living.
