  • Vera is regularly invited as a financial expert on the TV programme ‘De Afspraak’ on the Canvas channel.

Trainer

Vera has a Masters in Applied Economic Science. She graduated from the University of Antwerp in 1988. For a while she worked for IBM and KBC, but soon felt the urge to branch out and do her own thing.

Mission

She founded Fincover Ltd. in 1995. Fincover stands for Financial Consulting Vera. Vera’s mission has never changed: Fincover aims to bridge the gap between financial and non-financial people in business.

The method, however, has evolved. In the early days, the focus was mainly on classroom training. Nowadays, Vera combines a range of teaching methods. In jargon, we call this blended learning: e-learning, webinars, business-case coaching, event learning, classroom teaching… Together with the client, she looks for the best mix to meet the requirements.

For large companies and SMEs

Vera works mainly for large companies. Her many clients include Barco, Elia, Proximus, Electrabel, Telenet, BASF, Atos Worldline and Tiense Suiker. Fincover also enjoys providing training to SMEs through VOKA.

Vera teaches all the training courses herself, so clients can be sure of consistent quality, and she masters all three languages (Dutch, French and English).

Simple

‘If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough’, Einstein once said - and he was right. Vera speaks only no-nonsense language. Armed with plenty of examples and exercises, she manages to keep things interactive.

Customised

Vera uses your financial reports, emphasises the financial indicators that are relevant to you, and uses your financial terminology.

Fun!

Finance doesn’t have to be boring! Vera isn’t afraid to add a bit of fun to the conversation. She always has a quiz or cartoon-style film up her sleeve. Finance is fun!

Vera speaks your language

Fincover works in three languages – Dutch, French and English. Though the main activity is based in Belgium, Fincover also offers its services worldwide. The ‘Finance is fun’ story has reached Italy, France, Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Hungary, the UK, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, New Delhi, Abu Dhabi and Texas.
