Prof. dr. Peeters is an independent sparring partner who differs from the traditional consultants in that he combines in-depth, well-founded analyses with systematic process management. As Senior Partner of Policy Research Corporation N.V., established in Antwerp in 1989 and since 1994 also very active in the Netherlands, he is known for his typical hands-on approach, characterized by the combination of a no-nonsense mentality and in-depth knowledge. His research has been the basis for innovative policies and strategies for companies and governments worldwide.
His presentations are always perceived as fascinating and animated. Complicated issues are explained in clear terms, and he doesn’t mince his words. Thanks to his Belgian style of presenting, the message always gets through to his audience and he even creates acceptance for the solutions he proposes. This creates a climate of trust and openness and a productive platform for problem-solving. Prof. dr. Peeters has already been awarded several scientific distinctions, and his research is published in many international academic and professional journals. He is also author and co-author of more than 30 books.

Condition hereby is, however, that such chairmanship must go hand in hand with a contribution to the content of the conference or panel, whereby the vision and views of Prof. dr. Peeters can shed new light on the issue at hand.
