Who is Peter De Keyzer?
Peter is a well-known commentator in Belgian newspapers and magazines, and on social media. He is a critical observer/analyst of Belgian and European economic policy and is known to regularly ruffle a few feathers.
In 2016, the former chief economist for Petercam and BNP Paribas Fortis decided that it was time to become an entrepreneur and founded his strategic communication bureau, Growth Inc. The agency helps customers to have a sustainable influence on our rapidly changing society. On the right people, institutions, companies and eventually the whole of society. He will be releasing a book about this in 2020. His innovative and sometimes radical ideas allow De Keyzer to get most audiences thinking about the society of tomorrow and how you can help to construct it as an individual, company or organisation.
Peter De Keyzer presented a fantastic lecture. Great content, well founded and well delivered. He is a fluent, dynamic speaker. His progressive optimism is infectious! I would recommend his lecture to everyone!

Peter De Keyzer presented our General Meeting with a keynote on the current financial/economic situation and his vision for the future. Not in the least boring, but enthusiastic and interesting!

It’s fantastic how Peter, on several occasions, has managed to inspire large groups of youngsters - from difficult backgrounds - at A Seat At The Table. He shows them that you can and must be ambitious in order to create opportunities for yourself.

Many economists only impart the current pessimism about the future. Peter De Keyzer is a welcome exception. Yes, there are problems, but Peter clearly shows that there are also solutions. There is reason for optimism.
