It is always a pleasure to read or watch news about PTMBA students in the press (recap of the latest so far: Bart, Peter, Sam and Tom here ; Danny here). Earlier this week it was Katrien Kimpe’s turn to be in the limelight. As coordinator of Flanders’Care it was unavoidable to end up in the press (for a good cause, of course) :-) Katrien was featured in De Standaard and Het Nieuwsblad.
From the papers you can capture some key MBA words like “platform”, “innovation”, “stakeholders” (ok, my own translation of “partijen”), “leverage” (I learned a new work in Dutch: “hefboomeffect” – thanks!), “process”, etc. ;-) Teasing is easy but I think Flanders’Care is doing a very good job at making connections in the healthcare sector (alas, they can only operate in Flanders) and trying to address the challenges of an ageing Europe: chronic diseases and elderly care will indeed become more and more important health issues. You can have another glimpse at what Katrien is doing in one of her recent presentations (there are plenty of links to interesting videos on slide 12). Proficiat, Katrien!
