Hugh van Praet

My name is Hugh van Praet, and I am MentorCoach for Sales Professionals. I like to say that I found my professional purpose in helping individuals unlock their true potential, which will transform their lives and their business.

Let me start by telling you my story. Like most people, I started off doing what I was “told” to do: go to school, get an education and most importantly, get a good job. Well, I did all, and I am thankful to have done it too.

But after several years as a sales executive with companies such as Oracle, IBM, and smaller high-tech start-ups. I felt I was not fulfilling my purpose; I felt I had more in me, and that’s the reason I decided to create my own path on December 27th, 2016.

I decided to move to another country, something I always wanted to do. As that was not enough, I also took my destiny into my own hands as an entrepreneur.

It’s been an awesome journey with both victories and setbacks — one which has led me to what I am doing today with lots of excitement and pride.

Why excitement, because clients with whom I work fuel me this energy. Why pride, because I see my clients visioning – building the path that is right for them.

They are my best references next to the fact that I was very honoured, blessed and excited to be awarded the Vivian Prokop Mirchandani mentorship prize in 2019, this out of 3,000 skilled Futurpreneur mentors.

As a native English, French and Dutch speaker, with working proficiency in German and Spanish, I enjoy doing different types of sports, discovering the world and learning about other cultures.

Last but not least, I am a proud father; my daughter is a graduate of Imperial College in London, and my son is finishing his masters at Louvain la Neuve in Belgium.
