Opening Ceremony Concerthall Everyone

Opening ceremony: when to arrive & what to expect?

On the 8th of June, the EC Bruges conference will kick-off with a grand and spectacular opening ceremony.

Here are some key things to keep in mind:

  • Doors open at 18:00
  • The venue can host 1300 people, so first come, first serve!
  • We will foresee a snack & apéro prior to the opening ceremony, so no need to have dinner before coming to the opening ceremony

  • After the official session, a keynote by the famous Belgian chocolatier Dominique Persoone is foreseen
  • We will close the evening with a party hosted by JCI member DJ Sammy!
  • And last but not least: all drinks are for free !

Where to put your flag during the opening ceremony & do I need to foresee some seats for my club or country?

  • When entering the Concertgebouw, you will receive a colour code linked to your badge
  • This colour reflects the floor (Parterre, Foyer 1, Foyer 2) where we have foreseen places for your club & country to sit during the opening ceremony
  • Keep this colour close to you as the same colour applies for the gala night!
  • There will be no need to rush for seats, with 1300 places, we have covered that one for you!
  • The doors of the room will open 30 minutes prior to the start of the opening ceremony – so plenty of time to reserve seats or place your country flag if you would like to do so

Keynote Speaker during opening ceremony:

BDO: Tips & Tricks for on - & offline networking (SOLD OUT) BMCC Active Citizen, Business

Description:

Everyone does networking. It seems like a hype.  
 
Social media has made networking a lot more accessible for everyone who feels more comfortable behind their computer than at a cocktail party. 
 
Those who prefer not to go out can sign up for online networking events. This digital way of networking can be a perfect complement to physical networking. Moreover, it can seriously enlarge your sales market. 
 
Digital sessions are on the rise since the corona crisis and this ensures that it does not matter where your customer or professional relationship is based. 
 
Offline, you usually have that little bit more impact. Shaking hands and making eye contact are still important aspects of networking. 
 
Fortunately, everyone can improve their networking skills with some practice. What is the best way to do this so that you get effective results from your efforts? How do you network and where do you do it? 
 
Filip Verstraete, senior business developer at BDO Belgium, bundled a lot of practical tips and tricks that will turn you into a pro networker in an exciting interactive workshop.

💙 EXTRA CAPACITY - BDO: a smooth transition to the next generation in family businesses BMCC Business, Active citizen

 

By Jan Oosterlinck
Partner BDO Belgium

Many directors of family controlled enterprises are entering the retirement age and are considering how the next phase of their family business could look like. Nevertheless, the operational focus of the day-to-day management has as a consequence that essential preparatory steps are not taken or even considered.


In this workshop we highlight the frequently observed pitfalls in a family transition, the emotional aspects of having difficulty to pass the torch and the observed fear that the next generation is not ready to take full responsibility.


On the other hand, the next generation is not always well prepared. The succession period is not well defined and the route of transition is unclear. The mental pressure to step into the shoes of father, mother, uncle … is high.


We will shed some light on the process and the dynamics in such a transition process and we illustrate this with life case experiences and observations in the field.


A well prepared succession is key to guarantee a smooth transition and secures that families ties are not broken and that family moments are still enjoyable … which is unfortunately not always the case …

To Flirt or not To Flirt in Business and Bars (SOLD OUT) BMCC Business

Description:

To flirt or not to flirt, in business and bars, is a training that is both useful for social and for business purposes. It’s about making contact with people and being interesting for people. By accomplishing that you can in the end “close the deal” that you are going for. In this fun, energised and entertaining seminar we explore the art of (business) flirting.

You will be amazed how many different flirting techniques there are and how you can easily recognize if someone is interested in you. Also we look at the flirting signals you send out. Flirting is not only making contact, it is also about staying in contact. In this workshop we show you that you can be that interesting person you always wanted to be.

Flirting is also a business technique! After all, business deals are not only granted for the best price but also because they want you to get the order. In this training you will learn that the flirting techniques, coming into touch and coming into tune can be used just as easily in a social context as in business, so you can actually close the deal you always wanted to make!

Company visit - Aquafin Wastewater Plant (SOLD OUT) Meeting point: BMCC Business, Active Citizen

Description:

How does waste water become purified? That is what we can learn on a guided tour on one of our sewage treatment plants (WWTPs). Aquafin manages a total of more than 320 WWTPs, spread across Flanders.

During the visit we follow the path of the water. We start at the place where the collected wastewater arrives at the installation and then follow the different steps of the purification process. First we look at the mechanical purification, where coarse dirt (likes leaves, pieces of plastic, branches, …) is removed from the water. Then we concentrate on the heart of a treatment plant: the biological treatment. We explain how bacteria are actually responsible for a natural purification process. At the end of that process, we can see how the water is purified and discharged into the local watercourse after a final quality check.

World Trade Game BMCC First Timer, Active Citizen

Description:

Come and play the internationally popular "World Trade Game" with us!

The World Trade Game is developed in coöperation with Professor Tinbergen of the Erasmus University of Rotterdam. The game is centred around world trade where the world is represented by 12 countries.

Twelve teams control these countries. In three rounds, each round represents one year, the world trade is simulated.

Every team has the task to get their workers to produce end-products with which it feeds, clothes their citizens and provides cars, energy and tourism. These end-products can be produced by a finite amount of raw materials each country is provided with at the beginning of each round. Countries can also invest. These investments can lead to more raw materials each round thereafter, which can lead to more end-products produced if the country has or finds enough labour.

The game will be moderated by Berith Spoelstra of JCI Den Bosch. Background info on her (PDF download): Berith Spoelstra

Keynote Charlotte De Backer: Edible Communication: Why it is impossible to separate food from communication (CANCELLED) BMCC Active citizen

Description:

Part of the sessions of "lets talk about food and nutrition, part 2/2"

You are what you eat as much as you are what you not eat.

Any decision about food communicates a message, intended but often unintended.

Food is communication, and the better we understand this, the better we can understand why communication of all sorts (from intimate interpersonal conversations to mass mediated messages) influence diets across ages, time and cultures.

Charlotte De Backer is Professor of Communication Sciences at the University of Antwerp, and director of the Food Media & Society – FOOMS research line (Food Media Society) within research group MIOS (MIOS Research Group). FOOMS’ researchers study how various communication channels have an impact on daily food decisions, and how any decision about food in itself functions as a means of communication.

Sensory Tasting by Sensolab (SOLD OUT) BMCC First Timer, Active Citizen

Description:

Perfect workshop for SME's in the food industry!

 "Why do people dislike my product?"

 "Could I replace sugar by a sweetener and make a healthier product without consumers tasting the difference?"

 "Can I develop food products containing insect ingredients which are liked by consumers?" 

These questions are typical problems related to the sensory properties of food products. In order to solve these problems, one could perform a sensory evaluation on the food products.

The workshop will provide an introduction to the sensory evaluation of food products. The most important methods will be showcased (incl. some evaluations by the participants of the workshop) and good practices for the sensory evaluation will be provided.

Furthermore, the role of sensory science for Food SME’s will be introduced with examples on how it can help to solve sensory problems.

Dr. Joachim Schouteten  is appointed as lecturer at Ghent University and involved in teaching business-oriented courses (Entrepreneurial skills, Applied management) and Sensory science courses (Sensory analysis, Texture analysis and Sensory analysis). He is part of the research of Agro-Food Marketing and Chain Management division and authored over 25 scientific publications. He was involved in several (inter)national projects, several in close collaboration with food SMEs, and was the project manager for the Erasmus+ project NutriSEA. Furthermore, he had research stays at the University of Copenhagen (2015-2016), Nofima (2018) and the University of Adelaide (2020). He presented his research at several international symposia and conferences.

Bedrijfsbezoek bij 't Reigershof in De Haan: geitenboerderij - kaasmakerij - lekker biologisch!

Description (Dutch):

’t Reigershof ligt midden de Oudlandpolders, op enkele kilometers van de zee. Dit nog authentieke weidegebied is sinds jaren natuurgebied vanwege de nog typische ‘bultige’ graslanden. Jaarlijks komen duizenden rietganzen uit het hoge noorden hier overwinteren.

In 1987 startten we onze boerderij met een 25 geiten. Begin 1998 schakelden we om naar biologische landbouw.Ondertussen melken we tweemaal daags 300 geiten. De melk verwerken we tot een twintig tal rauwmelkse kazen en yoghurt. Deze worden onder andere in ons winkeltje op de boerderij verkocht.

We hebben 30 ha grond in gebruik. Daarop telen we het overgrote deel van al het voer voor de geiten. Naast gras/klaver/luzerne weiden, telen we ook gerst en mengteelten als triticale met veldbonen.

’s Zomers grazen de geiten in de weiden, ’s winters lopen ze in ruime stallen op stro. De geiten worden driemaal daags gevoerd met gras-klaver-luzerne kuil, bietenpulp, aangevuld met granen als gerst, lijnschilfers, peulvruchten en kruiden. Geen samengesteld fabriekskrachtvoer (brok) dus.

De in de weiden gezaaide witte en rode klavers hebben, naast het feit dat de geiten er zo op verlekkerd zijn, de eigenschap dat ze gratis stikstof uit de lucht halen en dit ter beschikking stellen aan de grassen. Dit geeft naast onze eigen stalmest (mest met stro) de ideale bemesting voor de weiden en akkers. Hierdoor ontstaat een gezonder bodemleven, waardoor de gewassen kwalitatief beter en gezonder zijn.

Sinds 2013 werken we antibiotica-vrij. Momenteel zijn we aan het doorschakelen naar Biodynamische landbouw.

Guided Tour: For Jaycees by Jaycees - ENGLISH - 10 EUR Meeting Point: BMCC Active Citizen

This tour is available on 2 different times and also in 2 languages. Make sure you pick the correct one from the program.

Description:

There are places that somehow manage to get under your skin, even though you don’t really know them all that well. Bruges is that kind of place. A warm and friendly place, a place made for people. A city whose history made it great, resulting in a well-deserved classification as a Unesco World Heritage site. Medieval mysterious, unabashedly Burgundian and a metropolis for centuries; Bruges inner city impresses with its cultural-historical heritage.

Did you know that

  • In the 13th century, Bruges was the leading trade centre of Northwestern Europe.
  • The first ever stock exchange (‘beurs’ in Dutch) was founded in Bruges.
  • From the end of the 14th century, Bruges was part of the realms of the Dukes of Burgundy.
  • Famous painters such as Jan Van Eyck and Hans Memling – the great Flemish primitives – found their creative niche here.
  • The world famous ‘Madonna with child’ is the only work by Michelangelo that left Italy during his lifetime.

 On this exclusive walk (max. 16 persons), local city guides and JCI senators Claude Pauwels or Johan Persyn will take you along on a fascinating trail. You’ll discover hidden gems and secret places next to the must-see heritage and architectural highlights of Bruges.

From the Market Square and the Burg, over the Rozenhoedkaai (Rosary Kay) and the canals, through the Beguinage and the Lake of Love, the almshouses and much more. Iconic sites that give the city its look and charm you instantly. During the tour you will also see Bruges from the water. The canals of Bruges – the ‘reien’ – are the arteries of the city. Nothing is as pleasant as chuggling along in a boat as you sail past all the most beautiful places in the city. From the ‘reien’, you discover hidden romantic corners and secret gardens.

We finish and reminisce with a fresh pint in a local brewery.
