Ingrid De Clercq

“I am a free spirit, curious, adventurous, open and positive. My inquisitive nature, deep interest for people and why they do what they do make me a patient listener and perceptive sounding board who gets to the essence before drawing conclusions. All of this flavoured with an infectious enthusiasm, boundless energy and a big smile.”

Ingrid has over 20 years’ experience in projects involving the building out of entrepreneurial cultures, developing, launching and coaching innovation programmes for larger corporations besides guiding young, innovative companies to a model of self-management. She brings her expertise with start-ups to established companies and vice versa. Ingrid lectures on team composition for entrepreneurial teams at Imperial College, London, the University of Brussels (VUB) and Erasmus College in Brussels.

She has been a keynote speaker on Creative Thinking, ‘How to make Innovation work’, Culture Change and Building Futureproof Organisations in Belgium, the Netherlands, Canada, Romania and Pakistan.

Ingrid has a Graduate Certificate in Creativity and Change Leadership from the International Center for Studies in Creativity, of the State University of New York, Buffalo, is a FourSight Master Trainer in Mindset Certification and a certified MBTI-trainer Type I & II.

… And if she’s not working, Ingrid loves to travel off the beaten path and discover authentic cultures.


Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by. And that has made all the difference.
