Ann De Bisschop (keynote)


Ann De Bisschop has worked in the media business for more than 25 years and has held several management positions. She became one of the first Wellbeing Directors of Belgium sparking a powerful cultural change in management.

She realizes better than anyone that the work climate and rhythm takes a heavy toll in many companies. According to Ann things can be done differently and better.

In her first book ‘Countdown to Monday’ Ann mainly focuses on the employee.

In her second book ‘Wellbeing=Profit’ she addresses the business leaders and managers about the importance of a proactive and strategic welfare policy. She wants to convince companies of her policy based on 5 elements: only with Healthy, Happy, Motivated, Talented and Informed people you are future-proof as an organization. Employees are the most important asset of a company. She believes investing in the well-being of employees is not an unnecessary luxury, but an absolute must. The Corona pandemic has significantly increased attention to the wellbeing of employees and their mental and physical health.

Ann is the most sought-after keynote speaker in Belgium because of her authentic and hands-on approach. In her keynote, she reflects on the role of the organization and of the manager in the work happiness and enthusiasm of the employees. Among other matters, the following topics are discussed:

  • The ‘why’ of a welfare policy

  • How to maintain a connection during a period of working from home?
