Introduction

20 lines on me. Well, heck. Let’s try.
I’m happily married to a wonderful French girl, Nathalie. She quit her green Normandie to become my daily muse and dedicated source of energy (I need lots!).
I joined Porter Novelli Brussels as a communication specialist in 1998 after a short stint as a teacher and a nice career as broadcast, radio and print journalist. I kept my own management consulting agency Heliade*.

Currently, I head up Porter Novelli’s social media efforts in EMEA. Based @PNBR5, a social media lab at the very core of Porter Novelli Brussels, I co-ordinate PN’s cross border digital activities.

I studied Educational Sciences and Agogics, the social science relating to the promotion of personal, social and cultural welfare. My healthy passion for people, Schrödingers cat, quantum mechanics and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy make me an unorthodox out-of-the-box thinker with an untrustworthy  eidetic brain .

A passionate presenter, I speak  regularly on the integrated use of digital media, web 3.0, augmented reality, predictive web, crowdsourcing and metrics, and conversation management. I conducted media and digital media training sessions and seminars to brands and organisations all over the globe. My vision on digital and social media, the universe and life in general is daily voiced through my Twitter channel @dannydevriendt, this personal blog www.heliade.net, and a plethora of online forums.

I am a guest-lecturer at the University of Ghent on digital media, communication to generation Y and media-analysis. I like writing poetry and short stories.
As I travel quite a lot, and as I have the irritating habit of having an opinion on almost everything, I decided to post my mobile life online. That is where it belongs. Dotting down my thoughts is just in my blood. Hope you enjoy it. And let me know what you think.
Oh, by the way. These are my personal thoughts, my personal feelings. They are mine, and mine alone, and engage nobody else on a private or personal level.
