IT and Digital coaches are the driving force behind the talented IT teams of countless Belgian companies. They deserve a place in the spotlight for their valuable work. That is precisely why we have launched the prestigious ICT & Digital Coach of the Year 2019 award. We invited inspiring keynote speakers and topped it off with a dash of comedy.
Our 350 guests enjoyed an evening full of inspiring keynotes, networking opportunities, delicious food & drinks and a spectacular award show in the magnificent Ghelamco Arena MeetDistrict!
> The evening was hosted by Rani De Coninck.
Marc Lammers, former top coach behind the success of the Red Lions (our Belgian hockey team!) provides a surprising answer to the most challenging questions that you are confronted with in team management and coaching.
Dr. Ben Tiggelaar - the most talented speaker in the Netherlands, bestselling author and Obama interviewer - shares insights that help you become a better coach. His years of research in leadership offer a wealth of tips and best practices. At This is IT, all attendees received Dr. Ben Tiggelaar's best-selling book 'De Ladder'.
Comedian Arnout Van den Bossche highlights all archetypes in the workplace in his own inspiring way. Humor and insights from the top shelf. Subtle, recognizable - but most of all: hilarious!
Hans Haverbeke, head of data & analytics at Port of Antwerp, won the prestigious ICT & Digital Coach of the Year Award. On top of that, Hans and his team received an experience voucher of no less than 7500 EUR, for a team event of their own choice.
Every IT and Digital team of at least 7 people had the opportunity to nominate their coach or manager for the award. We were looking for nominees that make the talent in their team grow and prosper. An independent jury with both business and academic expertise, selected and screened 5 finalists.
The aim of the renewed 'This is IT' contest is to shine the lights on IT coaches and managers - as the driving force behind talented IT teams. After all, they ensure that companies and teams can grow and are prepared for the impressive challenges in our industry.
Our mission: to inspire every manager and every company to invest even more in the sustainable development of ICT and Digital talent.
Why? To provide the right answers to future challenges.
