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)

Hans Vandenberghe has had his boots on the ground in digital internal communications for over 10 years. 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.

Sam Marshall (Clearbox Consulting)

Sam Marshall is the owner of ClearBox Consulting and has specialised in intranets and the digital workplace for over 19 years, working with companies such as Unilever, Vodafone, TUI Travel, Diageo, Sony and GSK.

Bruce Fecheyr-Lippens (Solvay)

That's where he discovered talent management. Excited by this topic, he quickly focused on employee experience and future of work, for their immediate and positive impacts on his colleagues.
