"You can’t really talk about the future without also being part of it”, says Richard van Hooijdonk. So he put his money where his mouth is. To date, he’s had several RFID chips injected into his body that perform various tasks for him. Van Hooijdonk is planning to have a number of additional chips implanted

Great brands and organisations we work with


A keynote speaker is, of course, nothing without his team. Ten years ago, we put together a future intelligence team consisting of members located in countries all over the world.

On a daily basis, this international team of more than 20 specialists – including trendwatchers, analysts, marketers, copywriters, video editors, and graphic designers – is involved with the latest trends in many sectors.

All team members are also part of our future intelligence unit, TrendForce.one, and enable us to efficiently ‘translate’ rapid market developments into keynote lectures and masterclasses. Thanks to this team, our clients’ customisation requests can also be processed faster and more efficiently.


We offer various products and services, including keynote lectures, workshops, masterclasses, professional webinars, virtual reality or hologram lectures, and video productions. During a keynote, Van Hooijdonk can give a live demo of the functions of the various chip implants in his body.


Our keynotes can be held at any desired location. The duration of a lecture varies from 30 to 60 minutes. Shorter and longer keynotes are also possible. While our keynote lectures mainly focus on a specific sector or topic, we can also put together a customised version. A sector or topic lecture, which examines the trends in a sector, is often combined with a lecture about the future of the organisation. During keynotes on the future of the organisation, attendees are shown ways in which organisations can adapt to the rapidly changing world. Our clients experience this as a valuable keynote combination.

Clients  also regularly book our masterclasses.  In many cases, a masterclass has a specific sector or topic focus and combines the advantages of a keynote with those of a workshop. Whereas a keynote inspires, a workshop is where the acquired knowledge and inspiration are put into practice. During a masterclass, participants are coached and teams presented to each other. This is one of the reasons why a masterclass is very valuable as in-company training for companies and organisations.

A keynote can be extended with a Q&A, a supporting poll, an interview, or a round table discussion. In addition, we have exclusive offers for certain sectors. For example, you can combine a keynote with one of our annual trend packages.

In addition to lectures and master classes, we offer a unique service for clients who book a lecture. For an additional fee, they receive one year of trend updates on desired sectors or topics. Based on these trends, the organisation can, possibly with our support, start developing future scenarios. The trends, statistics, and predictions serve to support the development of scenarios and the strategy to be chosen. In addition, important interim trends and developments can be a reason to change the approach. If you are interested in this, please let us know. This service is provided by our future intelligence unit, Trendforce.one.

A wide array of lectures is available for many sectors and on a variety of topics.

Although we have a large variety of keynote lectures available, sometimes clients request other keynote topics. In these cases, we schedule a brainstorm with the agency and the client, upon which we base our research and develop a new keynote, masterclass, webinar, or video production.


The keynote lectures by trendwatcher & futurist Richard van Hooijdonk will also be held online. We have a private studio with all the equipment and technology needed to offer a quality, inspiring program. Our interactive online keynotes are based on visual content, boasting clear images and engaging video footage.


Our marketing team can help inspire your clients and prospects to book one of our events. We can, for instance, develop a content and marketing package around certain themes that consist of e-books, whitepapers, videos, sample keynotes, or video teasers. An example of such a theme could be 'cybercrime month' or a 'future of education project'. This marketing support not only provides leads but has a positive effect on the image of an agency as well.

The ultimate goal is, of course, the sale of a keynote or masterclass, or rather a series of keynotes or masterclasses. And because clients often contact and compare multiple agencies and keynote speakers, a competitive edge is important. We have used the 'brainstorming concept' with some agencies before – and with excellent conversion results. As part of the collaboration, we would like to offer such an online brainstorming session with Richard van Hooijdonk.
