Studied Industrial Engineering Biotechnology at Campus De Nayer (KU Leuven).

P&G’s history in Belgium started in 1956 with the introduction of Dreft, the first synthetic detergent. Over the next 60 years, P&G introduced many breakthrough, life-changing products to the Belgian consumer, including laundry products, disposable diapers, feminine care, and hair care. In 1963, P&G chose Belgium for its first European Research & Development Center for Fabric and Home Care products, located on the old Expo ’58 site. The facility was called The European Technical Center, later renamed the Brussels Innovation Center.

Brussels Innovation Center is Procter & Gamble’s European R&D headquarter and is home to 1100 employees, from which 600 are scientists and engineers.

Kris Van Impe

My affection for Continuous Improvement and Lean started when I worked for General Motors Belgium, 20 years ago.

Later on I worked at Pfizer where I had the chance of developing my skills in Operational Excellence and where I was trained to become Master Black Belt.

At Pfizer I had the pleasure of improving my knowledge of Human Error Reduction, Lean and Six Sigma. Training, coaching and deploying programs in all those disciplines for Pfizer Belgium, and sometimes also other Pfizer sites in Europe, was my job and my hobby at the same time.

After a period of working as freelance where I gave some training sessions for Pauwels Consulting and other companies, I started working for Pauwels with a project at Biocartis. During that time I continued working on all kinds of OpEx related subjects for Pauwels and for Biocartis.

Over all those years I’ve been attracted to everything regarding OpEx and my passion is turning into an addiction!

Learn to be more mindful about stress, worries and fears

“?? ??? ??????? ??? ?? ?????? ??? ?????? ?? ??? ??????? ?????? ?? ?????? ???????? ???? ?? ??? ?? ????.” (Shantideva)

We all know stress is no good. We all know worrying doesn’t solve anything. In this hectic and demanding world, many people fall victim to stress, worry, and fear as a result of fear.

The thing is, stress, worry and fear don’t always have to be bad things, they can serve as necessary alarm bells, protection or the fuel we need to propel us forward, to make the changes we need.

In this session, we’ll learn to be more mindful about the stress, worries and fears we hold and we’ll explore practical and grounded ways to reduce our stress and become more aware of ourselves.

We’ll get inspired with quotes, poetry and videos. We’ll journal and answer honest questions. You’ll receive practical tools to help you with stress reduction (breathwork, meditation techniques, soft movement exercises)

I look forward to sharing this honest, powerful, stress-free webinar with you 🙂

See you soon!

Biography

Namasté ? My name is Delphine Delchambre, born and raised in Belgium, but a world citizen at heart (aren’t we all?!). Yoga has been a big part of my life for the past 6 years, I dare say, it has become my life. Yoga is more than a series of postures we practice and try to move into and sustain, it’s a way of moving, breathing and thinking, a way of life. Yoga is raising your (self)awareness and diving deeper into a broader consciousness. When I’m not doing yoga, I travel the world with my personal project “Wayra Freedom Project”, write, dance, create, get involved in NGOs all around the world… In short: I love to express and share my heart with the world.
