J’ai compris très vite que Danny  Devriendt savait concevoir avec audace des approches stratégiques gagnantes quand je lui ai confié chez Parrot la coordination de mes 10 bureaux PR à l’international. Mais, franchement, ce qui m’impressionne le plus chez Danny c’est le speaker calme et passionné qu’il m’a été donné de rencontrer. Je pense que Danny a une Intelligence hors norme qui vous fait bouillir le cerveau à 360°. « Passeur » de tendances ? Evangéliste des média sociaux et des nouvelles technologies ? Ecoutez-le : Il est un peu tout cela à la fois pour savoir créer des moments aussi magiques à chaque rencontre !

Danny Devriendt brengt storytelling live op het podium. Hij voert in de praktijk uit waarover anderen enkel strategische nota’s schrijven. Met een drietalige flair, als spreker of deelnemer aan een panelgesprek spreekt hij over social media met relevante praktijkvoorbeelden. Hij moet zowat de oudste digital native zijn, een ervaren pionier. Hem bezig horen is altijd een verrijking.

De kijk die Danny Devriendt brengt op toekomstige (media/communicatie) evoluties start dikwijls vanuit het verleden en bewandelt een pad waarin iedereen zijn richting weet te vinden. Hij brengt relevantie ipv paniek zoals enkel ervaren gidsen dat kunnen.”

“I engaged Danny Devriendt as a keynote speaker for an event run by the Association of European State Lotteries. He is one of those rare speakers who is not only a professional and engaging speaker, but has a practical background and experience to back up his presentations. His content was solid and completely relevant for the theme of the Event (Social media and PR/Communications) and he delivered it in a way that held the audience’s attention. His preparation was meticulous and he took my brief 100% and understood exactly what was wanted. And if all of that were not enough, I found him to be a genuinely “nice person” who enjoyed what he did and delivered what was required. He was a gentleman and a pleasure to work with, and I would definitely hire him again.
