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.

Discover all speakers and register soon!

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.


All presentations are streamed. You can revisit the presentations for another month.

Systems thinking is a way of thinking that gives you insight into how people and organizations act, plan and organize. Systems are everywhere.

The world viewed through the lens of the wandering nerve: nine days polyvagal
Where and how can we see real threats?
How do we delete old traumas or unpleasant experiences?
Where and how do we find the signals of safety?
How do we increase our resilience?
What is that really: fight, flight and freeze?
How do I establish good relationships?
What is a safe and efficient team?
What is the vagal brake?
What is the social engagement system?
What are shimmers? How can I avoid fatigue?
How can I increase my immunity? How do I avoid burnout?
How do I avoid headaches, neck pain, muscle aches and other annoying ailments?



Have you ever experienced that for some incomprehensible reason you suddenly feel unsafe during a conversation or during a party or an outing? Or that you are present at a meeting but your opinion is ignored? Or worse, you fall completely silent and hardly dare to move? Have you experienced traumas in your life or do you sleep badly? Or do you go through many periods with intense fears or worries? Or pains and fatigue?

Scientific research proves that about 60% of people suffer from past minor or pronounced traumas. And they carry that with them for an entire lifetime.

Did you know that this has a huge impact on your immunity? And on the development of burnout and the reduction of your resilience?

Here you can learn the perfect method to make an important conversation, a coaching session or an important assignment go smoothly and safely. 

These problems can easily be avoided with the help of our nervous system and more specifically with the help of the wandering nerve. Once you realize that, all those complaints disappear like snow in the sun. And then you go through life quietly with valuable connections and maybe even with the perfect job and fantastic health.

We all possess a wandering nerve that lurks throughout the day to detect pain and danger. And especially to improve our connections and confidence or our resilience and immunity. Process unpleasant experiences, connect with other people, live healthy and improve your resilience.


This year we are planning a year-long training, a true specialization with a short recap and lots of new and exciting info on polyvagal theory.

We will have a virtual zoom session in February, March, April, May and June and further in September, October and November. And then we will organize another festive day at the end of 2021 ( hopefully the virus will be gone by then) with exercises and a festive distribution of the year certificates. Then you are a true specialist.
