Who is David Steegen?
“Everything he does is an excuse to share his thoughts”; that’s what his close friend Stefan Himpe once said about him in De Morgen. And David Steegen has done a lot. This includes managing communication for a film company, a TV broadcaster, politician Guy Vanhengel, and now RSC Anderlecht. In between, he has also been manager of football services at Belgacom TV, established sports broadcaster Exqi Sport, wrote the books De zomer van Mexico ’86 (The summer of Mexico ‘86) and 100 jaar RSC Anderlecht (100 years of RSC Anderlecht) and worked as a columnist for weekly magazine Bruzz.
As an expert communicator, David Steegen is the perfect person to inform you about the communication policy of an elite sports company. His lectures contain striking examples and captivating anecdotes from daily life as well as stories that can be appreciated by football fans and non-sports enthusiasts alike. He speaks fluently about his favourite sport, but also about his favourite city (Brussels), where Dutch and French speakers are now a minority and where security is a hot issue. He passionately expresses his own take on the city’s past, present and future, as well as that of Belgium in general.
