Hi there, I'm a media-allrounder journalist (TV, print, online and audio) and a multilingual conference moderator (English, French, German, Italian and Dutch), based in Brussels, Belgium. During my 20+ years in the industry, I learned the tricks of the trade from scratch, starting as a local newspaper journalist and becoming 15 years later the Deputy Brussels Bureau Chief of the European current affairs TV network Euronews. 5 years ago I ventured into an exciting new life of freelance journalism. So do get in touch for: • Conference moderations (EU affairs, sustainability, economics, human rights and social questions) • Podcast production • Video production • Media training Also check my Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/obruns/
