#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 ;-)

According to Frank Deboosere it’s going to be really really nice weather this Friday, especially in Antwerp :-) Next to that Microsoft & Telenet are organizing “Work in the Park” @ the Middelheimmuseum, and they will turn the park into an open air office for people to work or study. They have foreseen free WiFi, coffee, water, sun cream and even a masseur…

So, ideal timing & location for a Twunch!
Tweeps, sunshine and a free lunch, that can’t go wrong! ;-)

We will provide sandwiches, picnic plaids, drinks and of course ice cream for dessert!
Only thing that you need to bring with you is your good mood & sunglasses…
