'Welcome to the future'
A new reality
How do you stay successful in challenging times? What are the consequences of COVID for organizations? How can you use a recession to gain an advantage over competitors and how do you prepare the organization for challenging times? What does an organization that can change quickly look like and what role does leadership play in this?
Inspirerende lezingen voor alle sectoren
Tomorrow’s world is just around the corner, with robots performing repetitive and predictable tasks, and sensors and cameras representing the digital feelers of our world. Self-learning algorithms will intervene on time and offer the best solutions at astonishing speeds. But will we be safe? Will we not be outsmarted by cybercriminals? The acceleration of smartification has begun. Are you prepared?
Inspiration sessions focused on specific industries.
The future of healthcare
Technological developments in healthcare are taking place at breakneck speed. Think telemedicine, wearables, brain implants that eliminate the effects of epilepsy and Alzheimer’s and bioprinters that print organs. In the future, we’ll swallow an electronic pill that keeps our health in check. Our personalised medication will be 3D-printed at home. Surgeries will be performed by robots, and we’ll even be able to ‘cut’ genetic diseases from our DNA. And best of all – that future is already here!
Inspiration sessions focused on specific topics
The future of work
The future of work will bring new working models and existing hierarchies will start disappearing. The quantified workplace will measure our performance, while VR and hologram technology will enable us to work remotely with people from all over the globe.

This futurist has chips in his body
“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 in 2020 and 2021.
