We were randomly researching the ww webs the other day and were completely taken aback by the fact that we couldn't find a list of  Belgian female business leaders who are making waves in the offline and online world. So instead of just leaving it like that, we took some extra time and created a list (that will evolve) of six Belgian leaders who are serious about getting their social media act (the) right (way).

As stated, this list is not conclusive and there are a lot of great examples of influential Belgian Female Business Leaders out there. However, this list is an homage to a group of inspirational and thriving Female business leaders who are setting a great example for others.
