Management van Scopernia


A new style of consulting needs a new name

Gent, February 18th 2020 – The management of Duval Union Consulting announces, on behalf of CEO Nils van Dam and founders Jo Caudron and Dado Van Peteghem, that the company will continue as of today under the name Scopernia. The new name embodies a new style of consulting.

Nils van Dam: “We are convinced that organizations need to broaden their perspective if they want to successfully transform. A few years ago, it was enough to anticipate digital disruptions. Today it is necessary to understand all major social changes in the areas of work, housing, mobility, sustainability, healthcare and living. Companies are gradually realizing that a future-proof plan can only be written based on a holistic, cross-sectoral approach”.

New vision, new name

“Our old name fitted perfectly with what we used to do. But our current approach to transformation, innovation, partnerships and purpose required a new name that better covers the load: Scopernia. Our new name stands for ‘scope’, ‘Copernican revolution’ and ‘purpose’. A new era has dawned, a turbulent time, for which we as an agency are completely ready. In terms of expertise, network and people. Our name symbolizes this new era,” says Jo Caudron.

Core values of Scopernia

Dado Van Peteghem: “The values of our reborn company are “Fearless, different and entrepreneurial”. These core values match what is needed in this brand-new decade. We are full ready to help companies in building and implementing future-oriented, transformative and purpose-led strategies, for setting up a holistic approach to partnerships and eco-systems, and for accelerating companies by guiding innovation in product, service or business model”.
