Time&Place Consulting

My Job

When it comes to Time&Place Consulting: Developing and implementing communication strategies for profit and non-profit organisations towards policy decision-makers lies at the heart of all my activities. This can be for crisis management, reputation management or to provide a favourable regulatory outcome for clients. My main approach is not to think short-term, but rather where possible, shape context that creates a continuous impact on relevant decision-making processes. This includes building sector-specific associations in Brussels, developing global networks or becoming the go-to person on specific dossiers.
I am currently developing further business pillars under the Time&Place Group brand (to be launched shortly). The one already longstanding is Time&Place Funding. The others for you to keep an eye out for:

  • Time&Place Institute – Education, training and think-tank branch
  • Time&Place Marketing – The title says it all, but we are already servicing clients
  • Time&Place Productions – 360°-media capabilities
  • Time&Spaces – Office spaces and event management

My Experience

As a Consultant, the main the role I hold right now is Head of Public Affairs EU for CharIN which focuses on developing and globally introducing standards in the e-mobility sector for all types of vehicles.

My career first began at the American Chamber of Commerce to the EU before becoming Account Executive at Hume Brophy. Thereafter, I became a representative in the Brussels office of Lottomatica (now IGT), globally largest provider of state/national lottery services and gaming technology solutions. My last position before deciding to build my own strategic communications and Public Affairs consulting network (Time&Place Consulting), was Executive Director for the European Casino Association. I was also Secretary General of the European Enterprise Alliance which represents the interests of employers and entrepreneurs from central and Eastern European countries on the European stage, and which I helped build “from scratch”. Until recently, I was also Head of Brussels Office of the German Airports Association (ADV).

My Interests outside work

Apart from being a Grade 7 pianist, making feature films and very long motorbike trips. In 2018 I did a solo trip from Brussels to Montenegro and back. Time for another trip! Next year I will combine a motorbike trip around Romania with making a documentary on motorcycling and truck-driving in Communist Romania (by trying to follow the footsteps of my late aunt).

My Favourite Brussels anecdote

The look on my Belgian friends’ faces when they hear from others in Brussels: “You are Belgian? I have heard so much about you!”
