Hospitality is my thing - language my ‘dada’.
Throughout my career in hospitality, I learned the hard way that communication determines the success (or failure) of commercial projects. I help commercial teams to communicate more efficiently with their clients.
As a trainer and coach. Copywriting and translating take me back to my first 'love', specialized in commercial communication for hospitality, events, and tourism.
Corporate social responsibility is a must for me and I love projects that put people and the planet center stage. I love dedicating time to two charities that are close to my heart. As a board member and vice president for Antwerp Diner (NPO), I organize the sales for the yearly fundraiser (2020 contribution of 112.000 Eur for 3 organizations that invest in the prevention and cure of aids and HIV). In November 2018, I spent two weeks with Tomorrow4Isibani (one of the 3 organizations) in Winterton, South Africa. A humbling experience that I am keen to repeat. One weekend a year, I devote time to the Belgian Annual Special Olympics Games. As a volunteer, I host the VIPs during the opening event, but more importantly, I show sponsors and VIPs why their support for this wonderful event is needed.
I enjoy my weekly session of functional training and I can lose myself in a good book.
