Every trading day the gong is sounded in Amsterdam to mark the opening (9.00 am) and closing (17.30 pm) of the trading session.
This year the tenth edition of National Compliment Day is celebrated.
World Compliment Day simply addresses the basic human need for recognition and appreciation. "A sincere and personal compliment costs nothing, but the impact on the recipient is huge," says Hans Poortvliet, recognition professional and the driving force behind the annual event in the Netherlands. Poortvliet will sound the gong on this special day.
