Grégoire Van den Ostende
Senior Communications Strategy Advisor
As an experienced strategic communications specialist, I execute crisis communication, copywriting, press and public relations, and provide media training.
Throughout Belgium, I have worked across the fast-moving consumer goods sector with companies like 3M, Procter & Gamble, Nestlé, Panos, Carrefour, Marlow Foods and Kraft Foods. I also have experience in various other industries such as Eurogenerics, 3M Pharma, the Federal Institute for Public Health and the Federal Agency for Food Safety. Additionally, I was the director and spokesman for the Bureau du Champagne Benelux for 15 years. For 10 years, I was the account director and head of consumer affairs for Porter Novelli in Belgium. In 2004, I created my own strategic communications firm, Breaking News, which I still run today. I am also a partner of SoContent, a collective of communications specialists, based in Ghent.
