Hi, I’m Bert Heymans. I’m a digital projects specialist and I want to deliver quality experiences that make people forget about the technology they are using.
I’m as much a project manager as I am an analyst, they’re great complementary skills. I have a load of experience in leading web production projects, digital marketing, social media projects and I have a background in software development.
On the subject of people management I strongly believe in coaching, empowerment and facilitation. People describe me as a team-player who’ll explain difficult stuff in human language.
I’m a PRINCE2 certified Project Manager since 2010.
I was very lucky to enjoy a Certified Agile Leadership I training.
I’m a Kanban Management Professional (KMP I and KMP II).

► lean management
► public speaking
► business analysis
► graphical facilitation
► communicating technical design with wireframes and diagrams
► information architecture and user experience design
► leading web production
