On August 30, more than 300 Alumni made THEIR late summer reunion a special event in Ferme de Profondval.

This ancient château-farm provided a cozy venue for an informal evening of reconnecting with ex-colleagues and friends. On the menu: great stories, fine food, refreshing cocktails, live music and a fun photo booth.

Enjoy watching your favorite sport live on TV?

EVS makes it happen

A highlight of the evening was the fascinating keynote by alumna Muriel De Lathouwer (CEO EVS Broadcast Equipment). At the helm of this Belgian company since 2014, Muriel gave us an insider view of the amazing technologies they provide to broadcasters across the world to bring just about every live sports event to our TV screens, from the Olympic Games to football matches. As the undisputed global leader in its domain, EVS is busy innovating for the future, moving from traditional linear video business models to more flexible standards based on IP technologies that will offer an unprecedented and interactive live sports experience to viewers.

Muriel also shared her career story in a Q&A session with Eric Lonbois. Voted ICT Woman of Year 2017 Muriel is an inspiring role model for women entering the technology domain and as a recent member of the CoderDojo Belgium board, she is also passionate about its mission to provide free and open technology learning to young people.

Thank you for making this event our best reunion yet!
