Luc Swinnen studied medicine at the KUL (1975) and specialized in epidemiology, insurance medicine and statistics.
He worked for more than 10 years as an insurance physician and was frequently confronted with the increasing consequences of stress in companies.
Encouraged by the then Minister of Employment & Labour and Equal Opportunities, Miet Smet, he conducted a large-scale study of stress in the early 1990s and immediately calculated its cost to companies, the government, the taxpayer and the employee. It was hallucinatory.
From the mid-1990s, he began lecturing on stress at national and international conferences. For this he worked closely with Levi, a renowned Scandinavian psychologist and European founder of stress management in companies. Levi remains to this day a great source of inspiration for Dr. Swinnen.
Since 1994 he has been a full-time business consultant in stress management and team building. For many years he has been widely consulted by the banking world, the telecom sector, the Flemish Government, Sidmar, Bayer and many other large companies.
Dr Luc Swinnen also tests his analyses against the latest insights and findings on stress thanks to his international network of renowned stress specialists. It is more a rule than an exception that he asks for a second opinion from a colleague in Orlando, Oxford or Atlanta about a certain result or finding. Naturally with the utmost discretion and anonymity.
Luc Swinnen is a doctor, licentiate in insurance medicine and statistician. For more than twenty years he has been a business consultant and coach in the field of stress, emotions and happiness. His passion is the impact of emotions on the functioning of people. He has published in numerous international and national journals and is an eloquent speaker at conferences.
At these international conferences, the latest experience is exchanged and he comes into contact with the most experienced researchers on these issues.
He has specialized in Flow, stress and burn-out since 2000 and has developed his own methodology. In doing so, he follows the workings of the brain and proposes an adapted working model.
