Who is Kris Daels?
Kris Daels started his career with the Special Intervention Squad, which is the anti-terrorism unit of the former Gendarmerie (now the Federal Police Force). He later became the team leader of this elite unit, which was responsible for all dangerous intervention assignments in Belgium. After ten years of jumping through windows and hanging from helicopters, he decided to become an undercover agent. His job: to befriend the leading criminals in our country. For eight years, he infiltrated the sinister world of prostitutes and pimps. He spent a lot of money in brothels but eventually ended up catching an international drugs gang.
He also wrote a best seller (Alpha 20) about his years as a detective. For the first time ever, the book offers readers a unique insight into how undercover work is carried out. If you are looking for a speaker whose life resembles an action thriller, then Kris Daels is the man you are looking for. He is able to fluently recall countless stories and anecdotes and, when it comes to modern police work, doesn’t shy away from criticism.
The lecture by Kris Daels was exciting and surprising. Kris Daels is a fluent speaker, likes to answer questions and isn't constantly looking at his watch, which meant the lecture over-ran by 30 minutes. If I hadn’t stopped him, I think he would still be sharing his experiences with us.

The FO club had a fantastic evening with Kris! Very worthwhile and very fascinating!
We were able to welcome Kris Daels as guest speaker yesterday. He has had an unconventional career. Mr. Daels is able to talk about his experiences with great passion, and moves gradually from the strict procedures to the spectacular work in the field. In short, not an everyday topic. I would recommend it to everyone!

Chairman De Kamer Roeselare
There were many enthusiastic reactions to his testimonial.
Kris Daels is able to truly fascinate the audience.
When it comes to Kris Daels, I think it's a question of 'hang on his lips' instead of 'read my lips'. He is a gifted speaker and you would really like to spend a long evening with him. He addresses a wide range of topics with the required sarcasm, humour and tension, without ever losing touch with reality.
We had a fantastic evening with Kris Daels. There was an immediate bond and I don't think any evening with another speaker has ever overrun like this one. We really look forward to repeating the experience.
