24 October - The Compassionate Leader - Jan Vermeiren @ Courtyard by Marriott Brussels


The better people work together, the better the results and the more fun.

When there are tensions between colleagues the energy and the vibe drop.

In this interactive keynote speech Jan Vermeiren, the author of the Compassionate Leader, will first share a few hidden dynamics why working together sometimes is hard.

Then he will teach a simple method to solve tension you experience with team members, customers, suppliers or anyone else: The Compassion Technique.


Jan Vermeiren is the founder of The Compassionate Leader and author of the book with the same title. After the sale of this previous company Networking Coach, which was the first training partner of LinkedIn in the world, he has shifted his focus to the hidden or underlying dynamics in the workplace.

The mission of The Compassionate Leader is: creating the space for an inspiring vibe. It is Jan’s wish that every employee can utilize their full potential. Organizations that support this by creating an inspiring vibe become more successful as well and are able to offer their customers a more fulfilling experience. A nice win-win-win!
