Hello there, nice to meet you

We organize the TEDxFlanders events because we like Ideas Worth Spreading, the international motto of TED. All of us are into creativity and improving things.

Please come and have a chat with us at one of our events, we would love to talk to you!

Christophe Cop

Tedx role: Curator & Founder
Christophe Cop

Christophe founded TEDxFlanders because he’s just too big a fan of spreading ideas. He is a dreamer and a sceptic, a rational optimist, and a child of renaissance and surrealism. He works part time as a statistician when he’s not figuring out what the next dots to connect or realization will be.

An idea worth spreading: “Eat together with the people who are dear to you! And try to make everything a positive sum game!”

Denis Ghys

Tedx role: Communications Instigator
Denis Ghys

Denis is a communications strategist and director at 10 advertising. Denis has a hard time choosing between being a marketing-man, a creative or a cook as he oscillates between cooking, his wife and kids and the everyday frenzy of “ad” land.

An idea worth spreading: “Ken Robinson’s talk on schools killing creativity was a great talk for all of us who live in a world and economy that is becoming more dependent on ‘creative thinkers’. I have three children and it is amazing to see them pursue more creative and alternative ways as they cope with their dyslexia.”

An idea worth spreading: “SIMPLICITY. People overcomplicate things most of the time. We see the world in 256 colours and HD, but sometimes we have to bring everything back to a couple of basic colours. By bringing back complicated processes and procedures back to simple and straightforward ideas, you can easily shift projects ... be it professionally or personally.
