CSW Global and European conferences are the meeting place for all things crowdsourcing. CSW Summits offer in-person, year-round opportunities to learn from leading experts.
What is crowdsourcing? The future is human-centric, all about participation and the ability to co-create via an increasingly connected world. This new way of doing things – crowdsourcing, crowdfunding, co-creation, collaboration, and open innovation – is challenging business models and workings of organizations across the board, offering an immense opportunity to rethink and reinvent conventional processes.
The initiative to establish the “ Business Route 2018 for Metropolitan Brussels ", a not-for-profit entity, was taken by the three regional and the federal interprofessional employers organizations, i.e. BECI, VOKA, UWE and VBO/FEB respectively.
Brussels Metropolitan aims at boosting the Brussels metropolis through the integration of the four mentioned regional and federal structures. The latter includes the Brussels Capital Region but also other districts, such as Halle-Vilvoorde and Nivelles. The main goal is to highlight the advantages of Brussels as a European integrated and international centre, focusing on mobility in particular. In the interest of BM’s roadmap, mobility is defined based upon 5 pillars : infrastructure, governance, urban planning, technology & innovation and changing mentalities.
The European Movement-Belgium is a pluralist, bilingual non-profit organisation that aims to bring citizens closer to the European Union. It represents the Belgian section of the European Movement International that has branches in 42 countries.
In order to inform the citizens about the EU, to increase European awareness and to encourage dialogue, the EM-Belgium organises debates, events, cultural evenings and training days.

Hear what some of my clients and colleagues have to say about me after working together on various projects throughout my career.
"Cécile is autonomous, independent and proactive with a strong team spirit. Her reliability and commitment make it a pleasure to work with her. She is demanding for herself, which reflects positively on the way she manages her projects on the company she works for. Cécile is someone you can rely on. She expresses her opinion in a constructive way, with respect for others.
Happiness is not only a destination, it is a journey. With Cécile on board, you can expect both to be reached in a smooth and positive everyday collaboration.
Cécile is a very competent people's manager, who is able to keep her staff motivated at all times. She is excellent in finding innovative solutions, even in difficult situations, when the European Movement Belgium was in troubled water. She is highly professional in the search for new projects and has potential in fundraising. I couldn't have dreamt a better Director for EMB!
Cécile has managed the European Movement Belgium during troubled times due to a significant reduction of public subsidies to the Movement. Despite these difficulties, she has continuously developed new actions and she has also built a strong network. It is easy and pleasant to work with Cécile as she is autonomous but also open to discussions/advices/remarks.
I really enjoyed working with Cécile at the SAP Lounge.
Cécile demonstrated rigor, strong commitment, excellent client relationship and highly appreciated sense of initiative, especially in a very demanding environment such as the SAP Lounge. She is full of positive energy which contributed to an excellent team spirit and is never afraid to take up new challenges.
Cecile is a very driven, empathic and involved professional. When she sets a target, she goes all the way to achieve and to perform the impossible. With an extremely positive attitude & a never-give-up mentality & drive she qualifies for me as the ideal colleague! I highly recommend her to future managers and co-workers!
Ik heb als hoofd van het Belgische informatiebureau van het Europese Parlement altijd erg goed kunnen samenwerken met Cecile. Zij is precies, to-the-point en heeft altijd overzicht. Ze durft pro-actief te handelen en heeft een groot gevoel voor verantwoordelijkheid. Ik kan haar zeer aanbevelen.
