Brecht REYNDERS elected FITCE.be Young ICT Personality 2016 !
Friday 29/4 the finals of this bi-annual contest was held at Agoria (Diamant).
Some 40 participants enjoyed the presentations of the 3 top-of-the-crop candidates from the preselections.
Brecht Reynders, Pierre Vivegnies and Christopher Franskin did an outstanding job explaining their views on what the second machine age may bring us in the relatively short future.
A Jury of industry seasoned professionals together with the audience challenged their views in a interesting Question & Answer session.
The members of the Jury presided by Gert Pauwels (Marketing Director IoT/M2M for Orange-Mobistar), Alain Thielens (Director of Operations Commsquare) and Bert Vermeiren (Managing Partner/Director of Hightech partners) were impressed by the quality shown by all 3 finalists and decided to appoint Brecht Reynders as the winner who may call himself FITCE.be Young ICT Personality 2016.
Brecht is currently working on his PhD thesis at ESAT (KUL) in the team of Prof Dr Sofie Pollin.
The evening was closed with the award ceremony and reception where discussions on the contest topic continued.
Some pictures are included hereafter.
Thanks to all participants for being there and congrats of the FITCE.be community !
