Luc Haegemans

“End of 70’s, Toronto, Canada… I was studying at the University of Toronto and lived on Duggan Avenue, a quiet and leafy street. It was an inspiring place, where I was able to broaden my perspective on the world."
Today it has become a symbolic methaphore. Duggan stands for : open minded, cosmopolitan and yet local, hands on action but also conceptual thinking.

Luc studied law at the Universities of Leuven and Toronto, international management at IESE (Barcelona) and organizational development at INSEAD (Fontainebleau) and Tavistock Institute (London).
