The good thing about Bart is that he knows where he wants to go. But what really sets him apart is his 'CAN DO' mentality in order to get there. So after one interview it was already clear that Bart would write his thesis at Euro RSCG 4D. And since then he hasn't proven me wrong.
Bart is not dependent on others, without being a loner. He's fun to work with, without losing his professionalism. Always eager to work, eager to learn and eager to progress. So if you're in the position to help him progress, you should definitely do so. Not just for the sake of Bart, but also for the sake of yourself and your company.
Bart is recognized as one of the China blogging experts with Science of the Time for a half year now. During our conversations together in Shanghai, Bart inspired and surprised me with brilliant stories of China. He analyses valuable insights, in depth knowledge with a methodological but still pragmatic approach to reach trends and also for putting elusive ideas into words. His contributions point to an inquisitive mind with a wide range of interests and endless curiosity. I will follow his work with great interest.
