To celebrate the final phase of the Opening Up project, and to share the results regarding Social Media and Open Data for local governments, the Intercommunale Leiedal, Lead Beneficiary and the European partnership, kindly invite you to join us for the Opening Up Final Conference.
The main objectives of Opening Up – a project within the NSR Interreg IVB Programme – include the development of transformational citizen-led services through the use of social media approaches, the integration of social media into government and business service delivery, the set-up of an accredited training programme on social media, the building of a community of practitioners and more.
We have some truly inspirational speakers lined up and hope, with active participation from the audience, for a dynamic event.

Jo Caudron confirmed as keynote speaker
Jo Caudron is the author of the books “Social media, the essentials” (Luster) , “Fixing the media, the dramatic impact of new media” ("Media Morgen", Lannoo), and since July 2014 “Digital Transformation, a model to master digital disruption”. He has been CEO, chairman of the board, evangelist, … but overall he considers himself as an entrepreneur: someone who sees change and opportunities before the rest of the market does, and then creates business around it. And this is also what he wants to be for his customers: an advisor who thinks like an entrepreneur, someone who can introduce new ideas into an organization, but who also has the pragmatic approach to translate theory into accountable practice. In 1993, he started the very first webagency in Belgium (The Reference) and today he is the founding partner of Dear Media, a consulting company, specialized in new media innovation. As an author and inspiring speaker, he also travels around the world to spread his vision on changing media and changing ways of communication.
Jo Caudron will be speaking on 2 December at 9h30
