Turning crisis into opportunity

It's not easy to keep your calm and not be guided by insecurity or panic during times of crisis. What you should remember is that every crisis -in one way or another- brings new possibilities with it. If you keep the right mindset while guiding your company through a crisis, you will certainly be able to turn difficult times into opportunities.

This is obviously easier said than done. At the very least, you have to be able to see the early warning signs of a crisis.

How to do this, and how to be able to step outside your comfort zone even during a crisis, will be explained by our guests in AUSY Talks. Journalist Astrid Roelandt will lead the interviews and filter out the most interesting statements.

Quote: I give my people a lot of space: I think it's better to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Jacques van den Broek

CEO Randstad N.V.

Jacques van den Broek has been a part of the Randstad family since 1988. Starting at Randstad felt like coming home to him. He began as branch manager a few years after his law studies. Later, he grew to be the regional director in the Netherlands and simultaneously accepted a challenge as CEO of and director of Capac Inhouse services, which are all part of Randstad. In 2004, he took his first steps in the board of directors.

Jacques has been CEO of Randstad N.V. since 2014. His vision? It's okay to make mistakes, as long as the qualitative work predominates. He doesn't think of himself as a follower: if everyone turns left, he will happily take a look on the right side. 

Nice to know: Jacques is a collector of miniature cars and comic books.

Bruno Venanzi

President of Standard de Liège

After graduating in history from the University of Liège and graduating in economics from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Bruno Venanzi joined Belgacom (now Proximus), where he worked in commercial positions for 8 years. Later, in 2003, he established Lampiris, which supplies 100% green electricity and natural gas. In 2016, he sold that company to the Total Group. 

Since 2015, Bruno has been president of Standard de Liège, the soccer club he has been a fan of since childhood. 

Nice to know: his favorite travel destinations are Rome and Istanbul.

Quote: Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion.
