Inspiring Belgium

A series of virtual inspiration sessions in acknowledgment of the 40th anniversary of McKinsey in Belgium

At Inspiring Belgium, you get a front-row seat for speeches and debate with Belgian thought leaders on digital and sustainability. Both one-hour events will give you a fresh perspective on the topics shaping our future and that of our country.

In celebration of our 40th anniversary in Belgium, McKinsey & Company will host a series of virtual events, called Inspiring Belgium, to reflect our appreciation, the topics we hold dear, and a way to inspire you and other engaged change makers.

Watch the recordings of both sessions below.
