Soren Van Laer – completed his floristry training in Belgium and once his training was accomplished he started working for Geert Pattyn in Geluwe. It was a place where he learned many new techniques and he was able to put into practice what he observed during the apprenticeship which eventually turned into full time work with Geert. Three years later Sören decided to give his career a boost, he now works as a Freelance florist , travels Europe doing workshops and seminars, as well as demonstrations, exhibitions and product presentations.
