EBBC invites Thierry Geerts – Digitalis: “How to reinvent the world”





Thierry Geerts and EBBC invite you to travel with us to Digitalis, a country that connects more than 4 billion people through the Internet. A country where healthcare, education, mobility, economy, and other social issues are being addressed thanks to the possibilities of the digital revolution.

This interactive session will be a powerful plea to put fear aside and embrace progress in these times of digitalization. The digital revolution has immense social, cultural, and economic implications and poses major challenges: we must reinvent no less than the entire world. But the message is positive: technological progress offers unique opportunities to improve our society.

Meet and chat with the author, ask questions, get advice, and connect with intra- and entrepreneurs, digital enthusiasts, IT, learning, education, sales, marketing, communication, and other leaders from all over the world!


Since 2011, Thierry Geerts has been heading Google in Belgium and Luxembourg, the company that has become much more than just a search engine. He graduated from the VUB as a Solvay Business Engineer and soon became general manager of an industrial laundry company. With the advent of the internet in the mid-1990s, he reoriented himself towards the media industry and held various management positions at VUM (now Mediahuis), publisher of newspapers such as De Standaard and Het Nieuwsblad.

His book Digitalis (2018), in which he describes the possibilities of the digital world, has meanwhile sold more than 25,000 copies. In 2021 he published his new book, Homo Digitalis, about the impact of the digital revolution on people and society.

The event is finished.
