Isabel De Clercq (connect|share|lead )

Isabel De Clercq is Keynote speaker, Consultant, Author, Fire Starter, Sparkle Architect, and last but not least, the Founder of connect|share|lead.

She is passionate about the vibrant interaction between people, brands, social technologies and organisational change, and her current focus is on the impact of technology on business, culture and work.

She is the author of the international bestseller book "Social Technologies in Business" (published in June 2017 by Die Keure, republished in Germany by FAZBUCH).

Some of Isabel's statements, with which we completely agree:

  • Business will be about eco-system and community-thinking
  • Social Technologies will change the culture of an organisation
  • It's not about man versus machine, it's about man and machine
  • I am a crusader against Digital Detox
  • Knowledge Sharing and Working Out Loud is about Self-Leadership

Hans Vandenberghe (Digisuits)

He has extensive experience in IT change communications, internal digital communication, intranets and enterprise social media. He has supported large enterprises such as Barco, Lineas, SD Worx and Mediahuis with digital workplace programs.

Currently his focus has shifted to digital collaboration tools and implementing these with attention to purpose, governance, user adoption and change. He is a big fan of Microsoft Teams and the Office 365 ecosystem because of the plethora of useful and easy-to-use productivity tools that are in there.

Technology is not the issue, it's applying it in the right way and getting the people to understand and embrace this fast-evolving technology. That is what Hans firmly believes.

Flemish Government / Vlaamse Overheid

Dave Geentjens has 20 years of experience with change projects in a government context. In 2002, the Flemish government chose to redesign the entire youth assistance. For 10 years, he worked as a change agent to connect the many different ideas into one concept. In 2012, he designed the associated digitisation, ranging from a new interactive classification to a cloud based workflow system that every aid provider in Flanders could access via multifactor authentication, ... For five years, he worked as a project manager to guide this instrument through the many twists and turns of Flemish policy. User adoption was a constant concern.

In 2017, he switched from youth assistance to the department for ICT and Facility in the government and started the roll out of Office365 for all government employees. Armed with both knowledge about very difficult changes with many stakeholders and years of project experience to implement digital systems for an audience with almost no digital natives, he engaged in this challenge.
