The impact of technology forces our organizations to change, but how do we do that? What sort of structure and what type of culture do we need? How do we "manage" insecurity? And which success factors are needed to get to that future? This inspiring reading offers many examples and practical guidance on how to deal with change.
Below is an overview of the various available keynote lectures. It is possible to combine different keynotes and we can also develop a tailor-made keynote, suited to your requirements.
Smart cities, smart homes and intelligent infrastructure form the basis of the society of the future. Technology changes the way we build. What trends can we see and how can we respond to them?
What will healthcare look like in 2030 without a family doctor and general hospital? How will predictive care ensure efficient and affordable healthcare? Will we live to be 130 years old? What can we expect from biotech and nanotech? Are you ready?
How will technology change agriculture in 2030? How does biotech ensure efficient crops and healthy animals? How do robots, drones and big data reshape the industry? Is the farm of the future a tech company?
What will the world look like when ‘things’ start making payments, algorithms give advice and blockchain keeps track of our transactions? What will the insurance business model look like when risk becomes predictable? Is there any future for money now that it’s becoming less visible?
Countless jobs will disappear but many new ones will emerge in their place. Children and students are now learning for jobs that in ten years will no longer exist. How do we prepare them for this? What does the future of education look like?
What does logistics look like in the world of automatic traffic flows? How do algorithms and the Internet of Things ensure a fully automated supply chain? And what is the impact of new production technologies like 3D printing? The future of logistics and transport offers solutions to many of the challenges we face today.
All technologies come together in the promise of tomorrow: the smart government. Cities and countries become 'systems of systems'. The ‘Omega generation’ is at the helm and the future is in sight. Which type of culture, organisation and measures are needed to bring our country to the next level? Are you ready?
New technologies such as 3D printing, virtual reality and self-driving transport determine the future of retail. Big data and the IoT provide analyses and triggers. And more and more smart products find their own way to the consumer. Retail will never be the same again. Are you ready for the future?
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.
Technology is changing every aspect of our work. Working in the office is no longer the norm. Focus on the digital individual takes centre stage. Self- managing teams and future labs have more freedom and knowledge comes from everywhere. Are you ready for the future of work?
