Founder and managing partner of
PM • Risk Crisis Change

Stijn Pieters is co founder and managing partner of PM • Risk Crisis Change. He sets out to create an out of this world network of people (or ‘company’) changing the minds, attitudes and spirits of people on how to handle risks, crisis and change.

Stijn pursues his purpose to prevent future generations being born in a dystopian world filled with depressed, cynical, pessimistic, negative and insecure people without the chance of building capacity to quickly recover from difficulties. His purpose translates into the objectives to toughen up people, teams, organisations, societies to improve lives; innovate in the broad field of risk, crisis and change and to strengthen individuals and teams who accomplish tasks with virtuosity, mastery, fluency, ability and proficiency, at any given time.

As an advisor to private, non profit and public organisations he draws knowledge and wisdom from different domains such as crisis management but also performance, risk, change management and paradoxical leadership.

Stijn has a background in crisis communications but also strategic communications and web development. Multimedia engineering was his first degree. He also holds a Postgraduate in disaster management, Campus Vesta (University of Antwerp). In his dissertation he covered the pre-crisis conditions for effective learning during crisis communication simulations in organisations.

Additionally, Stijn is co-founder of the CIP Institute, a collaboration platform that advocates research and development in the field of risk & crisis management. He is an active member of the Federal Belgian Crisis Communications Response Team.


Learning from global crisis: shifting from efficiency to resilience?

Stijn Pieters discuss how we can deal with this pandemic in the coming weeks and months, but also how companies and emergency services can learn from each other when it comes to resilience and leadership. Can we benefit from this? Does the ‘next normal’ offer better, more innovative, and new opportunities for project managers and project leaders?
