Working in different teams at the Belgian KBC bank on process related topics, Geert Nijs (Belgium) became passionate about the possibilities of social collaboration. He shifted from being a formal process thinker towards an “employee of the future” embracing new, social collaboration tools. “This shift wasn’t only about giving up the search for control, it was about completely reinventing myself and opening myself to this new world.”
Geert successfully enforced Hans de Zwart’s (Shell) social experiment at KBC, and today he gives talks about this topic at seminars and organisations. Previously involved in different network organisation and community building initiatives at KBC, Geert now works as a Learning Architect for the corporate L&D department at KBC. He also advises other companies in their social collaboration journey.
