Who is Nic Balthazar?
After graduating in Germanic Languages, Nic took his first steps in the world of media as a film journalist but later worked as radio and television producer and presenter. His debut film Ben X was an enthralling drama that won various international prizes and triggered a debate on bullying and autism. Tot Altijd (Ensor for Best Film 2012) was a gripping story about euthanasia. For his film Everybody Happy, he was awarded the prize for best director at the Montreal World Film Festival.
As a writer, theatre and documentary maker, Nic Balthazar is a man of many talents who is also known for his many years of promoting sustainability and combating climate change.
As a presenter/moderator, he is able to combine his infectious style with a fluent and likeable approach. With a healthy dose of humour, he is able to smoothly guide speakers and the audience through a wide range of topics. He speaks seven languages, and his background knowledge crosses many domains.
We were very pleased with how the Everybody Happy lecture went. Nic Balthazar is able to address this difficult but very topical issue in an accessible manner, and also provides a number of simple tools. And all this is done with a sense of humour. He is an approachable and amiable person, who has a no-nonsense attitude and is able to get the audience thinking. I would recommend him to everyone!
Everything at our study day flowed smoothly, exactly as we had hoped. Nic Balthazar, and his lecture on climate change, was great.
We really appreciated Nic Balthazar's introduction to his film. He makes you look at the film, and the issue it addresses, in a different light.
We also thought it was great that Nic stayed around after the film.

Nothing but praise for a more than successful evening with Nic Balthazar.
The film and explanation were both well received.
Nic is a very amiable man, doesn't have an attitude and is very approachable.
After the film, Nic Balthazar provided a very entertaining explanation about his insights concerning this issue and how he prepared for the film. As far as I am concerned, it was a real eye-opener and a successful event, with a fascinating Q&A session.
