I am a senior event marketing and operations executive with almost 20 years of experience in B2B and association event management. I'm a former president of Meeting Professionals International (MPI)
in Belgium, the largest meeting and event industry association worldwide, and an event marketing and technology consultant at Endo-Exo
, a virtual event agency helping organisations with event strategies, operations and marketing in the digital space.
I have done 200+ global association and corporate event projects in more than 40 countries involving diverse (often remote) teams and managed events with 1000+ attendees and 6-figure budgets.
I'm fond of technologies and have spent years working for tech companies and startups, which helped me to transition quickly to the world of virtual events.
During the coronavirus pandemic from March to December 2020, I have produced more than 50 events, including a month-long Freelance Business Month
with star speakers from all around the world for the Freelance Business Community, which I run as a side-business.
When I am not busy running events and online communities myself, I enjoy being a public speaker and contributor to the event industry's media resources such as Forbes, MPI, EventLIVE, Bizzabo, Content Marketing Institute, and others.
Finally, I indulge in hobbies such as photography
, sports, and outdoor activities to balance the thrill I get from all those great events. I also work as MICE influencer for event industry organisations.
If you have an important event in mind that needs special treatment or would like to consult the transition of your operations into a new, fully digital era, it would be my pleasure to be your guide and advisor. And if I am available, I am always ready for hands-on participation in the production and management of your event as well.
