March 26th barefoot dutchman walk

Guinness World Record for Men’s Mental Health

Meet the Barefoot Dutchman, Anton Nootenboom. Anton served in the Dutch army for ten years (including three missions to Afghanistan) and spent the last five years working in construction. Throughout his time in the industry, BFD got a first-hand look at the issues that men face with Mental Health.

“I felt the driving urge to make a change, which led to me starting my own mission in 2019, going on extreme barefoot walks to make a difference & help create the world I want us all to live in”, he said.

In 2021, the Dutchman will set a Guinness world record. Starting in April, he will walk from Cairns to Sydney barefoot. Yep, that’s 2600km along the coast of Australia to raise funds and awareness for men’s mental health. More than an honourable feat.

“My missions push my boundaries to the limit and force me to step outside of my comfort zone. There is a dangerously wrong perception of what ‘masculinity’ means, which causes men to struggle to be openly vulnerable. I want to help by showing it’s okay to talk about these issues and to be vulnerable when you are feeling like you need support,” he said.

This is a great opportunity to explore our backyard and work in a new environment. I find the great outdoors helps to ignite creativity and inspiration,” said Hayden.

March 26th a historic moment for perrier jouet

A Historic Moment for Maison Perrier-Jouët

The transmission from one cellar master to the next is a key event for any champagne house, but for Maison Perrier-Jouët, which has had just seven cellar masters in over 200 years, it is truly a historic moment.

In October 2020, Séverine Frerson became the eighth cellar master – and the first woman to hold the position – in the history of the House, which was famously founded from the union of Pierre-Nicolas Perrier and Rose-Adélaïde Jouët in 1811.

“I remember walking into the courtyard of 26, avenue de Champagne and feeling surprisingly serene. Maison Perrier-Jouët felt like home – no doubt because its values are ones I share. Now, of course, I have the impression that I have been here much longer than I actually have,” said Frerson.
