If you are interested in Social ' Business' Networking, Ecademy,SunZu, BlackStar or just want to meet for a coffee or a beer, i'm always open for a 1-2-1 !

A small review on my private life ... ;-)

Januari 1965, born in Mechelen - Belgium, under the sign of the zodiac as a Capricorne and in Chinese mythologie as a Snake.....

Believe it or not, but people who know me very well, they recognise a lot of those two animals in my character, and yes, i know .... ;-)

I'm the proud father of two lovely daughters, Nicky ( born in 1995) and Chloë (born in 1997) ! :-) :-)

Also i'm the godfather of Karoline, a very dynamic young lady (almost 20 years old ;-) ).

On May 7th, the first child of my brother was born, a little baby girl named Paulien. I'm so proud to be her godfather :-)

February 2002, my life changed completly.

Some friends talked me into a bet, i must be nuts at that time but couldn't refuse, i became a passionate snowborder.

In winter, you can find me offen in Austria but i discovered in the last years also France - Alpe d'Huez, Valfréjus and Switzerland - Leysin area.

In summer, i have fun on the tracks in Snowvalley - Peer - Belgium or Snowworld - Landgraaf - The Nederlands.

Oeps, somebody is missing here :-)


In between the summer and winter season, i have great fun with my family driving my Peter Lynn buggy and my 6 m² kite on the beach in Belgium - France and Holland.

Lucky me, my kids are crazy about this sport aswell ! :-)



Sometimes, i still enjoy an old passion: Mountainbike and '4x4 - Off the road' with my truck!



On holidays or some evenings when i'm not busy, i like to read books.

Unfortunathly, most of the time it's business stuff but i also love reading the books of Jef Geeraerts.

I think i have almost his whole collection now.

I'm also a great fan of Hergé and his strips Kuifje | TinTin.

Traveling around the World with my family, Enjoy! :-)

Business as usual ... ;-)

My first Black Star meeting in Holland - May 2008 - opened some new opportunities for me.

I had several 1-2-1 meetings with collegue Black Stars from UK and Holland. The discussions on our 'Virtual Table' made me think and the day after, i decided to take urgent action and change some important things in my life!

First of all, i started a club on Ecademy - ' The World of Gifts & Incentives ©'

Why this club? I like to help people, so i tell Ecademy members around the world what is going on in the branch.

The club is set up as a place were everybody can meet and post his questions, his new products, change idea's and even promote his own products, ....

Today, Mike Verdugt is helping me out with this club. Thank you for that Mike ;-)

I also need to thank Penny Power to give me that wonderfull idea! Thank you Penny to share this idea with me!

An other result, after a good meeting with Black Star Lesley Morissey, i became a part of the Ecademy Support Team. What does the Support Team do? If you have a support request thru the Ecademy system, there will be a big change that you get in touch with me or one of my collegae from Support. It's amazing what kind of questions we recieve and words of thanks to help the Ecademy Members with their problems.

Personnaly it's a fantastic experience, i learn every day more and more about the Ecademy Tools. I'm happy to share this knowledge with the Ecademy members.

You see, investing in a 'Black Star Membership' gives you an excelleration in your business. . . . . . . . . . . . .

Since October 2007, i'm shareholder at Belgian Gifts & Incentives, a company specialised in gadgets, premiums, promotional products, (exclusive) businessgifts, charity programs, loyalty programs and incentives.

"Heard from a friend that Peter is well organised, proactive, helpful, friendly, and trustworthy. What more can you ask?"

Ron Ladage

"Het is alweer 7 jaar geleden, dat ik in Mechelen op een event van Ecademy Belgium Peter Claes voor het eerst ontmoette. In de loop der jaren en vooral binnen Ecademy leerde ik steeds meer van Peter en vooral hoe hij tegen het zaken doen aankeek en hij was altijd bereid om mij te helpen om zaken beter aan te pakken. In 2010 samen met Peter in de Board van Ecademy Belgium gewerkt, waarin Peter de Country leader was en daar vooral Peters deskundigheid op het gebied van organiseren leren waarderen. Peter is een groot netwerker en vooral een eerlijke vent, die zijn mening bijna als een Nederlander ventileert, wat hem als echte Belg soms wel eens door zijn landgenoten niet altijd in dank wordt afgenomen. Wanneer hij wat zegt, dan is het zwart wit en heel duidelijk. Hij zegt wat nodig is en is altijd bereid om met anderen daar over te praten. Peter is niet alleen een groot netwerker, maar ook een goede trainer/coach voor bedrijven en de medewerkers van bedrijven. Zijn jarenlange ervaring binnen het management van grote bedrijven hebben hem gevormd tot een uitstekend interim manager en trainer voor bedrijven. Vanuit BGifts heeft Peter een ongelofelijke expertise opgebouwd, zodat hij een van de beste deskundige is binnen Benelux voor bedrijfs- en personal branding. Dankzij hem hebben bedrijven hun naamsbekendheid naar hun klanten vergroot. Verder heeft Peter een belangrijke levenswijze, hij is goudeerlijk en verlangt dat ook van anderen. Een afspraak is dan ook een afspraak en wanneer je dat weet te waarderen, dan weet je dat je samen altijd door één deur kan, ook wanneer er wel eens onenigheid is. Ik kan dan ook met een gerust hart iedere zelfstandige zakenman of de managers van bedrijven Peter Claes aanbevelen. Zijn kennis is niet allen breed, maar ook kan hij de diepte ingaan en voor anderen heel veel betekenen. Ongeacht wat mijn weg wordt in de toekomst, ik weet dat Peter altijd een vriend van mij zal blijven. En ik zal hem al;tijd blijven aanbevelen aan al mijn contacten binnen mijn netwerk. Namens Ron Ladage van Ladage Praktijk"

Anna Figiel

Sofie "Catching dreams" Vanhoutte

"Peter, I would like to thank you for all the support, good (sometimes very direct ;) )advice you are giving me in the last couple of years. And yes...I didn't like you very much for it at first ;) but now I'm so grateful for it. Finally after 2 years of hard work for Krijtlijn, I'm finally making baby steps of progress. And now I truly believe that I will achieve my goals with Krijtlijn...thanks to people like you in my network. To me, you're not only one of my network-connections, but also a friend who gives honest advice. Thank you for all of that! Sofie"

"Meeting Peter was a special experience. Not just because of the special occassion for which we have met but also because of Peter's warmth. This big man can be so tender and warm and you can feel when talking with him that you can trust him completely. From what I know and what I've seen he is also an excellent business man and a wonderful father. Putting all this together you get Peter - great and unique. I'm looking forward to meet him again and I wish him all the best. He really deserves it. If you are not connected with him yet, stop finally reading our impressions and get to know him - send him a message - a very nice one - as he deserves it ;-)"
