Jean-Philippe Gerkens, CEO at Velofabrik SCRLFS and (former) workshop manager at Cyclo Bxl. Jean-Philippe is going to share the story of Velofabrik, a social-purpose cooperative born that lived from 2014 to 2017. It manufactured locally-sourced, Brussels-made quality bicycles designed for the needs of Brussels cyclists. Jean-Philippe will share what he learnt about competing with China on bicycle manufacturing.

Roxane Kaempf, Senior Strategy & Change Consultant at IBM, is currently coaching organizations going through all kinds of digital transformation, stimulating people’s risk appetite and tolerance for failure. She will share with us the story of how she learnt herself to cope with failure: after university, she took the leap of faith and worked hard for almost 3 years to get her start-up off the ground – GreenHopper, a sustainable tourism agency – which ended up in a dead-end.

Geert Vanhorebeek, sustainable development coordinator at Stad Leuven, will come to speak about how remarkably easy it is to make a city climate neutral. Or not. Geert is attempting to carry out a large scale energy-efficiency renovation of a neighborhood in Leuven, and will share with us how he has thus far not succeeded.

These speakers will candidly share in 7 minutes:

- What their project was
- What went wrong
- How it affected their personal life
- What they learned
- What they would do differently

At the end of each story don't hold yourself, ask anything you are curious about. All accompanied by beer and good friends.
