Keynote speaker: Dirk Frimout
At our Forum, we will have the honour to welcome Dirk Frimout. Belgian astrophysicist for the European Space Agency, he flew aboard the NASA Space Shuttle mission in 1992 as a payload specialist, making him the first Belgian in space.
Upon his return, Dirk Frimout built a career as director of several research teams in different domains such as telecommunications, speech technology and biotech.
Through his experience, he/we will discuss themes such as innovation, change management, passion and human commitment, concepts that apply equally to the conquest of space as they do to the new challenges being faced by the financial services sector.
