Founder of SpeakerHub, strategic communication and public affairs expert who has trained over 1500 corporate executives and spoken to audiences in 27 countries.
I set up the European office of the world’s #1 organization for public affairs professionals, the Public Affairs Council (almost 700 organizations with 8000 individuals) and also keep an eye on the company I co-founded, Arboreus, which operates Europe's #1 EU career preparation service, Online EU Training.
I'm the author of the Ultimate EU Test Book – Europe’s no.1 best-seller book on EU exams, which has helped thousands of candidates prepare for EPSO competitions, hundreds of whom are now permanent EU officials.
My career has included seven years of experience at the European Commission and the European Court of Justice, where I coordinated briefings for Commission President Barroso, served as a member of the cabinet of Commissioner Kovács and dealt with European regulatory procedures known to experts as ‘comitology’.
I have an M.A. in Law and Political Sciences and the degree of Master of European Public Administration from the College of Europe, Bruges, Belgium. I am always open to invitations to speak about global public affairs, lobbying, strategic communications, European decision-making, skill-building for government relations professionals, EPSO exams, EU communication or online entrepreneurship.
