Hello world,

 

Very early in my career I got interested in management science, organizational design and innovation in all forms. In parallel, I have been involved in different aspects of the emerging Internet since 1997 and I have been working on many digital transformation related topics and projects since then. I am also well connected internationally in different communities of practice.

 

As a passionate futurist, I've been acting as an advisor, a coach, a team member, a leader, a speaker, an entrepreneur, a researcher and a science & tech geek ever since then.

 

My assignments & entrepreneurial projects during the last 20 years were diverse, mostly strategic at the C-level and always focused on governance models, management techniques, innovation, strategy, technology, sustainability, business ethics and change.

I'm also interested in politics, science, technology and the arts.

EXPERTISE
 
My story
I started to work as an independent consultant, entrepreneur, researcher and facilitator since I quitted university back in 1994 where I got a Master of Arts degree in economics (UCL, Belgium).
 
The independent work allowed me to follow my own interests and my curiosity and become a multidisciplinary systems & design thinker.
 
I have been assisting at many international conferences on diverse topics, sometimes as a speaker, what allowed me to become part of different global expert networks and CoPs.
My passion

Understanding the world we are living in has always been my passion.

 

The natural world, the business world, the social world and the scientific world. Life is a never ending learning process and curiosity is key.

 

I also consider myself a futurist, as I'm constantly sensing emerging patterns in management, business, society, technology and science to capture opportunities for building better businesses and a better world, and defy threats where possible.

My skills
Analytical thinking, Systems thinking, Critical thinking, Creative thinking, Empathy, Listening & Communication, Mediation, Facilitation, Moderation, Curiosity, Multilinguality.
