Belgian Girl Geeks

#10BEGG recap – Digital Speeddates powered by Telenet’s Digitale Versnelling

Telenet Business invited us for a very inspiring event powered by their cool project for entrepreneurs and small businesses: “De Digitale Versnelling”. We started with food & drinks (delicious pizza!) on their beautiful terrace.

Telenet Business - Digitale Versnelling

We were welcomed by one of our Belgian Girl Geeks role models: Martine Tempels, head of Telenet Business, founder of CoderDojo Belgium and member of the Flemish STEM platform.


Afterwards it was time for the speeddates with 9 of the Digital Experts from De Digitale Versnelling. They received questions about different digital domains: Email MarketingE-commerceSocial MediaWebsiteEfficiency & InfrastructureOnline SecurityBrandingOnline Advertising and Reporting & Conversion. From When should I post on social media and What tools should I use for my business to How should I prepare for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)… No question was left unanswered!

Do you also want to have a ‘digital date’ sponsored by Telenet Business? Small businesses up to 20 people and entrepreneurs can book a free 2h session via And no, you don’t have to be a Telenet customer to participate and no they won’t try to sell you something ;-)

Last but not least a big thank you to everyone who made this inspiring event possible:

  • Martine Tempels, Pieter Aertgeerts & Nikki Paelinckx from Telenet Business for being such great hosts
  • Robbe Dierckx for the really nice aftermovie of our event
  • My 8 expert-colleagues for the speeddates: Liesbeth Keuninckx, Elien Vanhaesebroeck, Herman Maes, Stijn Martens, Kristof Verheyden, Roald Larsen, Kristof Nizet, Gianni Brisson
  • Sarah Vandendael from Smaak for the delicious surprise treat in our goodiebag

…and of course all attending Belgian Girl Geeks for the great vibes & atmosphere.

See you next time ;-)

Telenet Business recently launched “De Digitale Versnelling”, an amazing initiative allowing small businesses up to 20 people and entrepreneurs to book an expert for free and receive 2 hours (!) of digital advice. And no, you don’t have to be a Telenet customer to participate and there is really no catch Topics wise you can choose between 9 domains: Email Marketing, E-commerce, Social Media, Website, Efficiency & Infrastructure, Online Security, Branding, Online Advertising and Reporting & Conversion. The entrepreneurs who provide the advice are all entrepreneurs themselves like Herman Maes who you might remember from #8BEGG – How to Blog, and yours truly is also one of them.

Therefor it seemed really fun to create a spin-off Belgian Girl Geek event and organize Digital Speed Dates @ Telenet powered by De Digitale Versnelling. They said yes so I hope to welcome you all at #10BEGG on the 5th of July Unlike the title might suggest we are not going to look for love… as always we are going to look for inspiration!

The concept:
There will be 9 tables with Experts who will talk about the 9 different topics mention above. So in total you will be able to have 9 speeddates in small groups. During these speeddates you can ask the Digital Experts anything you’d like to know for your company, or for yourself. Of course you can still book an expert after the event if you want to know more via
