"Hello Ian, normally you should be able to see the trainings come up in the listing on the site. I just checked and it seems there isn't one listed right now - which doesn't mean there isn't one in the making…"

Profile Information

How did you learn about Art of Hosting (please add the date and place) and what attracted you to it?
EC course in Bruges 2008. It quickly became
obvious to me that I was looking at the future operating system of the European Union. What's not to love?
Tell us about your experience with Art of Hosting as part of your life and work. What would you say your competence in it is? (new, starting practitioner, experienced practitioner, steward)
I am a regular senior practitioner of hosting in different formats at all levels of the European Commission and with stakeholders and other citizens. I have recently started co-hosting basic AoPL training. I believe asking questions is one of the best ways to get informed. :-)
What is the primary field/topic/focus in your hosting work?
Bringing out the collective intelligence and native knowledge in each. I believe the historic mission of the European Commission is to host conversations among the Europeans about how they want to work together in designing their common future. Nudging the European Union towards participatory co-creation of policy.
Where do you live/work?
Brussels bubble
Are there interests/passions that you'd like to share?
Baroque flute music, mountain hiking.
