Gilbert Bentein

Together with my colleagues we are consulting private companies and public authorities active in the maritime and logistic domain. And when words like project, program or portfolio management, business process improvement or strategic alliance are mentioned or when is seems to be "something about ICT", people tend to anxiously look in my direction…

A recent example of a project that takes quite a bit of my time is the Belgian Maritime Single Window http://mswbelgium.be. We work together with other EU countries in the AnNa project http://www.annamsw.eu/ Hard work but fun ! Meanwhile I also did some RIS stuff and other projects.
