About Gunnar

Gunnar Michielssen

Gunnar is an engaging speaker and writer who definitely knows what he is talking and writing about! For more than 20 years, he has been obsessed with the impact digital communication tools have on the collaboration of teams and organizations.

His anecdotes will have you chuckling throughout his entire presentation. He includes relatable stories of colleagues who never answer their phone calls, others who are drowning in emails, and others who spend more time in Teams, Zoom, or Webex meetings and have nothing to show for it.

Since 1999, Gunnar has been the most requested corporate trainer in Belgium and the Netherlands. More than 85,000 participants have already followed his ‘Kicking the Email Habit’ seminar. Since March 2020, the beginning of the Covid crisis, more than 35,000 participants taken one of his webinars.

Gunnar Michielssen offers his presentations in English, Dutch, and French.

Gunnar does not lecture in the traditional sense; he is constantly interacting with the crowd regardless of size and will answer participant questions in real-time.

What participants say after Gunnar’s workshops:

  • “Really, really outstanding! I wish it had lasted longer!”
  • “Wonderful and witty! All my colleagues should attend.”
  • “Short, powerful, and useful. Nice presentation, pleasant.”
  • “Great tips, Gunnar. You are a funny speaker and so enthusiastic.”

Gunnar is a Master of Law (KuLeuven – Belgium), holds degrees in Business Administration (UCLouvain) and French Civilisation (Sorbonne – Paris).
