iMinds Conference 2011
iMinds Video Report

In case you missed this year’s iMinds Conference, we made a short video report. Wim De Waele (CEO of IBBT) tells us all about iMinds, and we added a small part of our interviews with keynote speakers Charles Leadbeater and Xavier Damman. You can find the full interviews with Wim, Charles and Xavier further below!

Interview Jo Caudron

Social media guru Jo Caudron gave a speech about privacy and censorship during the break-out about social & secure ICT. A couple of days ago he presented his new book ‘Fixing The Media’ in which he talks about the threats and opportunities media have to cope with. We managed to steal a few minutes of his time and pick his brain about the importance of social media and innovation. 

Interview Xavier Damman & Bart Becks

Xavier Damman is the guy who moved to San Francisco with his girlfriend and co-created Storify. His story is a story about young entrepreneurship, guts and a brilliant idea.  He shows us how important it is to find the right mentors. Bart Becks introduced Xavier as a keynote speaker, and talked about the similarities in his entrepreneurial story.
