I have appeared several times in digital and printed press. Sometimes regarding a current topic, other times with a publication in an article. And I have presented or participated in other ways at several Real Estate and Facility Management summmits in the past few years.
Below is an overview with, where applicable, a link to the publication, and/or article or summit program with presentation.
Presentation at LEDExpo 2018
O February 7th 2018 I gave a presentation during the exposition LED Expo about: "The role of the facility manager in the smart building".
This presentation is available on request. Additional information can be found with the newsitem
Whitepaper for Facto Magazine 2017
Together with Bart Leleij I have written a whitepaper on request of Facto Magazine entitled: "Aan de slag met sensortechnologie voor een slimmer gebouw".
Sensortechnology, Internet of Things (IoT) and big data contribute to an efficient set-up of sustainable building management. This whitepaper describes the steps to arrive at a smart building that saves costs and offers employees an optimal workenvirionment.

Column Building Holland 2016
Following the Trendrapport Belgium 2015, I have written an article for a column on the website of Building Holland entitled: "Smart Buildings en de veranderende rol van de facility manager."
Building systems in corporate real estate have gone through an evolution from Primitive via Simpel and Automated to Intelligent and now Smart. The definition of an intelligent building first appeared in the New York Times in 1984: buildings that almost think for themselves. Because of the technological developments Intelligent was no longer sufficient and hence the term Smart Building was established. The main characteristic of Smart Buildings is that they integrate the indivual building management systems and link them with ICT systems and Facility software. You can read the article here.

FM Trendreport Belgium 2015
On request of IFMA I have written a column in the report that was crreated by PROCOS. My contribution is about the evolution of Smart-Buildings and how the FM profession changes due to further digitization of building and integration of building systems with the grid.
The report itself is introduced as follows:
"IFMA Belgian Chapter and PROCOS Group, consultants in Facility Management, joined forces to research the Facility Management Market in Belgium
We hope the results of the research will improve the knowledge of Facility Management in Belgium. Too many decision makers, politicians, civil service managers and corporate organizations are not always aware of the role and importance of Facility Management as a profession. "
