The best way to predict the future  is to  create  it
(Peter Drucker)

Who is Marc ?

I am a ‘doer-thinker’ at the crossroads of expertise, policy, society, and industry.

I am a strategist. I am a student of history, of geopolitics and the major trends of our time. I connect these to the contemporary reality of organisations and businesses to help them renew themselves, so we can all contribute to making the world better.

Labour market, HR, and the welfare state, are the bedrock of my academic activities. Globalisation and the European Union are my intellectual and professional habitat.

I have had leadership roles at universities and in the think-tank world, in Europe and Australia. Ghent University is currently my academic home.

I am fascinated by policy and politics. I was the foundational CEO of the Itinera Institute. I am an opinion contributor for domestic and international media outlets. I also have a column in Trends magazine.

Collaborating, connecting and partnering for impact, that makes me tick. Feel free to contact me for questions or suggestions.
