Business career: What I've taught

Seminars, tutorials and workshops

Already at the university, and during the whole of my business career, I was a frequent speaker at conferences, trade shows and business seminars. I've spoken about hypertext and hypermedia systems, about the business opportunities & challenges of the Internet and intra/extranets, and about building XML-based solutions for document & content management and application integration. I have also given dozens of in-house technical workshops and hands-on courses on XML for leading Belgian IT companies such as Barco, Cap Gemini, Real Software (now called RealDolmen), The E-Corporation (sold to Alcatel-Lucent), Telepolis (now called Digipolis) and L&H Speech Products (now bankrupt).
