Dajo Hermans


For many years, Dajo worked as a journalist at Het Nieuwsblad and De Standaard. He subsequently built up expertise in the real estate and communications sector. For the past ten years, he was one of the founding fathers of Bepublic Group, a reputable PR company in our country. There, he noticed that companies are increasingly reflecting on the social role they could potentially play. His passion for nature and entrepreneurship automatically led Dajo towards Forest Fwd. "Not just having impact through words, but also through deeds" that's what he is all about.

Arnout Cogen 

SR Consultant 

Arnout studied journalism at the Arteveldehogeschool in Ghent and is a magician with words. During his internship at De Gentenaar he first came into contact with Forest Fwd. At the planting of the very first company forest Arnout was present and immediately did the first press interview. Today he is SR consultant (not Public Relations, but Sustainable Relations) at Story Fwd, the PR agency that focuses on sustainable projects and impact stories. Walk the talk and talk the walk, it is certainly a slogan that is right up Arnout's alley.
