Boeiende workshop voor wie krachtige technieken wil leren om ‘lastige’ gesprekken om te zetten in interessante opportuniteiten en kansen  

On Friday, May 7, 2021 RESET, ubeon is launching a virtual congress 'RESET'. About ten experts will each give a 20-minute presentation on how to efficiently deal with the new online environment and with change. Because of the pandemic, we were all dropped into an online environment. Try it, working online, especially if you did it little or never before. Our work environments have completely changed. We are moving towards a future with a constantly changing mix of live and virtual work - the new normal.

At ubeon, we quickly noticed that many were missing out on great online opportunities. We shared tips with each other and were able to get started with more self-confidence.  What we learned along the way we would like to share with you.

Learn from our experts, network with them and with the other participants and also share your experiences and ideas.

Stories can take on a life of their own, especially online. How do you create impactful stories that move your business forward? Storytelling... it's as old as humanity itself, we all know born storytellers, we hang on to their every word when they tell captivating stories, stir up emotions and take us on a journey full of possibilities and inspiration.

People who 'have to' tell stories professionally today sometimes feel hampered by the online scene, the technological barrier, etc. The medium has changed; from flip-chart and personal impact to technological tools in virtual meetings. Fortunately, the principles of Storytelling have remained the same.

How do you tell stories online that make people say: "Wow! I want more of that!"

This training is meant for people who 'have to' tell online stories: communication managers, marketers, salespeople, entrepreneurs, ... but also HR managers, training managers, copywriters, trainers, coaches and consultants.

During this two-day 'Online Storytelling' training you will learn:

Build a 'hypnotic' story structure.
Employing symbolism and archetypes as landmark.
Employ subliminal storytelling techniques (foreshadowing, suggestions, etc.).
Build-in emotional triggers.
Using humor and lateral jumps to hold attention.
Making your story or stories authentically live online.
How to use technology as a support (rather than a hindrance).
The coaches; Stephan Vanhaverbeke, Koen Callaerts and Hans Demeyer are professional storytellers who have been training and coaching entrepreneurs, professionals and other coaches to tell inspiring stories since the 90s. They draw from a treasure trove of stories and storytelling techniques that they complement with techniques from NLP, conversational hypnosis, marketing, etc.

This training is given simultaneously 'live' and 'online'. The 'live' training can take place in the safest conditions while a moderator ensures that you as an online participant also fully participate.
On 22/4/2021 Dr. Luc Swinnen organizes his 7th congress: 'The brain in the 21st century' We are very happy to offer our congress on 22/04/2020

Given the current measures of the government, this event will be streamed. This way you can experience everything in the comfort of your own living room with a group of well-known national and international speakers. You can watch the films again one to one month after the congress.

In the morning, the main focus will be on resources and tools that will be indispensable at that time.

In the afternoon, we will all be able to take a look at the 21st century with its AI, robots, exoskeletons, sensors in clothing and wearables. What makes sense and what doesn't? How can we best prepare ourselves? And what do we do to adapt and keep our brains in shape? Because all these technical gadgets may not be a threat at all to people who have a vital brain. And this congress will certainly help you with that.


GINA PEETERS, better known as Geena Lisa, is our new conference chairman. Gina has changed direction in her career as a presenter, broadcaster and actress and is now a coach at VRT. She teaches cognitive behavioral therapy, stands for stress and burnout prevention and gives heart coherence training. "It is good to dare to evolve and to look at what gives you energy."

FONS LEROY was at the head of the VDAB for more than 10 years. No one is better placed to describe how artificial intelligence will change our work and our way of thinking. "A third of the jobs in 2030 don't exist today," he said.
"Robots are our new colleagues."

FANNY MATHEUSEN has been providing training and coaching for over 20 years.

She is a practitioner, instructor and supervisor in the Deep Democracy Lewis method. She is the only trainer in Belgium to give the Level 1, 2, 3 and 4 trainings. Besides trainer, she is an experienced coach, facilitating group processes with the deep democracy method.

In leadership and in conversations, every perspective is important. Everyone is different and can optimize the quality of dialogue, consultation and decisions. It is "deep" because it goes beyond many traditional facilitation methodologies. Fanny brings this important subject matter in an engaging and interactive way with exercises and also with the necessary humor. The method is used in 20 countries around the world in various fields: business, education, healthcare, mediation, family counseling, partner counseling, politics.

LUC VAN IMSCHOOT is a laughter animator. Grease your laughing muscles.

Dr. LUC SWINNEN introduction is unnecessary. He is a specialist in the study of the workings of the brain, burnout and stress management. Already 20 years. He is also the author of 7 books and is a well-known speaker nationally and internationally. He is an organizer of lectures, seminars and this congress. (Of course with the help of Eddy Vandenbriele who will take care of all the paperwork).

Keynote: PROFESSOR DR ROSA MARIO BANOS is professor of psychopathology at the University of Valencia and head of the LabPsiTec-Valencia Research Group.

She is also Vice President and Head of several Spanish and European research programs related to cybertherapy. She works on our mental health and coaching techniques through computer science and communication techniques. She is the author of more than 300 articles and books in this field. As an international expert in this field, we brought her from Valencia to Brussels. In the house of the future of course. Everything is interactive and humorous.

What the heck is NLP and why should I learn it? NLP stands for "Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Another flag may be 'Natural Life Processes'. After all, that's what it's all about.

"It is the manual for life, which we should really be obliged to give to everyone," said one of our trainees recently.

"There's my life before NLP and my life after NLP," said another student, "and with what I know now, I should have done this a lot sooner," she added.

NLP provides insights that make you more aware of yourself, others and the world you live in. In both your private and professional life, NLP provides less stress, more freedom and maximum self-control. Thanks to NLP you will be able to tell yourself a completely different story, which will allow you to get the best out of this life in total harmony, even more than before. NLP will undoubtedly bring about a turnaround. It is therefore quite normal that you want to taste it first, before you take the leap.

Brain Pirates will introduce you to what NLP will do for you during this initiation event. Register now via the button below and get ready for numerous AHA moments!
