'Welcome to the future'
A new reality
after COVID-19

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?

Algemene inspiratie

Inspirerende lezingen voor alle sectoren

Trends2030

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?

The company of the future

Dominated by exponential technology and disruption, the world around us is changing rapidly. As an organisation, how do you deal with these changes? How do you successfully manoeuvre towards the future? Which steps can you take? And what are the characteristics of a future leader? This keynote lecture will offer you insights, case studies, many examples and a clear plan of action.

Industry inspiration

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!

The future of construction

An inspiring future awaits the construction sector. We will use construction robots, virtual reality, blockchain, 4D printers and digital twins. Drones will map construction sites and construction materials will repair themselves. Cameras and sensors will provide the data required for artificial intelligence. Everything will become smart. Are you ready?

The future of education

Young generations are going to inherit the most technologically advanced world ever, where everything is increasingly digitalised. It's of crucial importance that their schools adequately prepare them for the future. This requires a radical transformation of the education system and education culture, in which digital learning will provide tailor-made education and artificial intelligence will support both teachers and students.

The future of retail

The future of retail is in the hands of ‘extreme digital’. Virtual reality and 3D printers will enable the fusing of perception, personalisation and on-the-spot production. Intelligent systems will take the place of cashiers and more and more smart products will independently find their way to the consumer. Offline and online shopping will merge into a captivating world of immersive experiences. Are you ready for the future of retail?

The future of agriculture

Agriculture is on the eve of major technological changes that will bring a more efficient, smarter, and more sustainable digital future. Technologies like AI, drones, and self-driving machinery will facilitate better efficiency, greater crop yields, and more sustainable agricultural practices. Breakthroughs involving data analytics and predictive tools will make decision-making more efficient and help optimise water, fertiliser, and pesticide usage.

The future of logistics and supply chain

The transformation of logistics and supply chains has begun. We’ll see new autonomous transport systems, and robots and algorithms will ensure lower waste and more profits. Drones will deliver products within hours after you click the order button. Self-driving trucks will take care of the automatic supply and robots will provide maintenance in the warehouses. The Uberisation of logistics is underway. Do you know what the supply chain of the future will look like?

The future of finance

The future of finance is digital. Algorithms will coordinate banking, insurance, and investments. New business models will arise. Artificial intelligence will pay claims and improve digital customer experience. Technology will also help us keep hackers at bay. This future requires new thinkers and doers. Led by visionary leaders, they will form the backbone of the financial organisations of the future.

Smart governments

How would governments be able to operate smarter, faster, and more efficiently in a world where digital technology is the basis of decision-making and service provision? In the future, advanced technology will ensure that governments can communicate more efficiently with their citizens and that their internal systems – tax, licensing, telecommunications, security, transport, social benefits, education, and healthcare – become smarter.

Topic inspiration

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.

The future of crime and security

Technological progress can take us very far, but the threats that go with it are serious. Who would have thought that drones and 4D printers could be used for criminal purposes? Or that hacking hospitals and medical devices would become a business model for hackers? Or that someone may one day be able to print the successor to the coronavirus?

Smart cities

Or that hacking hospitals and medical devices would become a business model for hackers? Or that someone may one day be able to print the successor to the coronavirus?

The future of marketing

An even greater digital transformation awaits. The consumer of the future consists of data. His personal data and the ‘things’ he uses are the foundation for interaction and communication. ‘Love Brands’ and algorithms go hand in hand. Relevance is key.

Customized keynote

All the topics mentioned can be presented in a comprehensive, compact way or, if required, omitted. Topics from other lectures or your own suggestions can also be added. We will gladly discuss this with you.

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.
