As Head of Tech in Belgium I enable companies to become data centric. The journey to getting value out of your data in a regulatory compliant and ethical way can be long and complex. Due to many years of hands-on experience in a broad range of companies I can shape your data organisation and assure you have the right tools to support your strategy.
I've been "into" data since the first day of my carreer. Over the 30+ years in consulting I've always focussed on the contribution of data to and organisation. I believe in a solid accademic background combined with a pragmatic approach as it shouldn't just "work on paper". Hence my Master level CDMP and Data Governance DAMA certification. I like to pass on the enthousiasm for data by means of formal trainings, keynotes, publications and working side by side with my clients.
I strongly believe that the best way to grow the industry and the community is to share the knowledge. Hence my longtime commitment to non-for-profit organisations. I started as active member of the DB2 IDUG community, served on the DAMA International board and I'm currently president of the DAMA BeLux chapter.
Don't stop at passing on the passion for data but enable the next person to excel.
