Who is Pedro De Bruyckere?
The youth are like the weather: everyone has an opinion about them. And the same applies to the education system. Nonetheless, few people are better qualified to understand the biggest trends and expel the myths than Pedro De Bruyckere. This self-declared addict of popular culture is a researcher and pedagogue at the Artevelde University of Applied Sciences in Ghent and Leiden University in the Netherlands. He has been studying the lives of young people for many years and conducts research into authenticity in the education system.
Pedro is an inspirational speaker who, with his enthusiasm and humour, never fails to give the audience – be they bankers, teachers or students - a special and educational evening. He examines the truth behind age-old myths, explains the biggest trends and provides specific tips for all those who deal with young people. You will certainly recognise the issues he raises and will be amazed at how he is able to dissect serious subjects with a sense of humour.
We give Pedro De Bruyckere a 10 out of 10 for his lecture.
