If we want to build agile organizations, we should take a cue from nature. After all, it has been around for billions of years and is infinitely more agile than any human-made organization. In this keynote, we will explore some of the principles that drive natural ecosystems and see how we can apply them to our businesses. It will inspire organizations to determine who they are, how they operate, and how they can grow. By borrowing from the agility of natural systems, we can create organizations that are better able to adapt to change and thrive in today's rapidly-changing world.
Nature always operates with a very clear purpose. What are the purpose principles of natural ecosystems that can be applied to business?
Culture & Value
Our subconscious (cell culture of our body) mind runs 95% of the show, this is true for organizations as well. So not only the conscious culture and values are important but in particular the subconscious culture and values.
What organizational structures and principles do natural systems employ to become agile and flexible? What can we learn from nature?
Future organizations need to be decentralized, self-organizing, and autonomous. Who or what will make the short and long-term decisions?
Talent & Learning
Skills and talents needed in future organizations will be focused on problem-solving, emotional intelligence, flexibility, adaptability, creativity, and critical thinking. Due to new exponential technologies like Ar and Ai, learning will be a continuous and fun process.
The shift from traditional hierarchies to more networked and distributed ecosystems will have a positive impact on people and the planet. Fluid organizations will adapt to their environment more easily and will start to have a positive impact on our planet.
Nature and biology are all about unity and empowerment to enable the growth of fluid ecosystems. If we start to use technology for that same purpose, organizations will also become fluid ecosystems.
Organizations will need to be more fluid, agile, dynamic, and adaptable: the ability to change and adjust in response to new situations and environments. We are on the cusp of a new era of organizations, ones that are more fluid and agile and which behave like swarms we see in nature. Thanks to the exponential evolution of communication and collaboration technologies, we are now able to build organizations that are better able to adapt and respond to change. These new organizations will be powered by AI and blockchain, and they will be more open, transparent, and decentralized.
Due to the exponential development of technologies like AI and Robotics, many of today's most essential skills and talents will become less valuable in the future. Problem-Solving, Interpersonal Skills, Adaptability, Creativity, and Critical Thinking are just a few examples of important skills that will get more crucial in the future. Organizations will need to put more emphasis on developing these types of skills in their employees.
And as we move into the future, we will see more and more businesses adopting these principles. There is no doubt that the organizations of tomorrow will be very different from the businesses of today. But one thing is for sure, they will be more human-centered.
Future Organisations will use powerful technology to unite and empower their people. We have already seen the first DOAs (Decentralized Autonomous Organisations) emerge! These new organizations are powered by AI, blockchain, and hivemind technology and therefore they will be more open, fluid, transparent, and fully decentralized. What does that mean for the future of work?
It means that we will see a shift from the traditional hierarchical organizational structure to a more flat, networked, and distributed model. This new type of organization will be better equipped to adapt and respond to change. We are already seeing the beginnings of this new type of organization, and it is only going to become more prevalent in the years to come.
The rise of swarm-like human-centered organizations will have a positive and regenerative impact on people and the planet. Fluid and agile organizations will put each human being at the center of their own ecosystem. These eco-systems enable individuals to focus on their passion and intrinsic motivation and as a result, they enable harmony and balance on a larger scale.
As a result, people will be more engaged and productive in their work. In addition, these organizations will be more sustainable and have a smaller ecological footprint. Fluid swarm-like organizations also adapt seamlessly to the fast-changing ecosystem, and because they adapt easily there is less environmental friction. So overall, the rise of hum

I was very impressed by Christian, right from the first time we spoke by phone, subsequent dialogue, and final presentation. Christian was remarkably quick in understanding our needs and customizing his talk accordingly. The end result could not have been more on point, which was amazing considering how little time we had and how little he was briefed. I welcome further opportunities to work with Christian.
John Dunne, Halma p.l.c., Medical Sector Vice President
I have seen Christian 'perform' a couple of times now, among others at a club of ambitious and critical entrepreneurs and during the kick-off of our event marketing agency. The story of Christian is very clever! Handsome how he can draw a parallel between biological developments and technological developments and revolutions. Besides, his story is more than a lightning-fast succession of gadgets and technical gadgets, but it is particularly relevant to how our society and all sectors within it will develop. Absolutely a must for every organisation that wants to gain insight into how to respond to all technical innovations and disruptions that are going to take place. And very beautiful: the end of his speech in which Christian ends with the 'human touch' and 'purpose'.
Pieter Bas Boertje, D&B Eventmarketing
The nice thing about Christian's keynote is that it is not an abstract high over presentation, he shows through practical examples that the exponential growth of technological developments is no longer unavoidable. Christian honestly and sincerely shows the chances and positive aspects of all those developments. That is what he does in his very own human way. And that is a unique combination for a fascinating keynote.

Christian can help companies and people to take advantage of increasing technology and turn a threat into a challenge. Because every change offers endless opportunities.
Ad Nederlof, Founder & Chairman Vanad Group
Christian made a truly inspiring speech on innovation which generated a broader perspective for the law enforcement community in terms of novelty and exponential growth of changes introduced in our society.
Christian is a futurist who speaks about the impact of exponential technology on people and organizations. He tailors his presentations to the specific industries and the needs of your audience.
Our world is changing at an exponential rate! A big tidal wave of digital transformation and disruption is coming at us fast. Many organizations see this wave as a threat and experience stress, but there are also organizations that just see this wave as an opportunity.

In the future, 3D printing and generative design will allow for products to be designed in a more decentralized manner, and production will take place closer to the customer and fully on-demand. 3D printing technology will also allow for more customization and personalization of products.
The agricultural industry is ripe for disruption. Robotics, AI, and IoT are all technologies that have the potential to radically transform the way we grow food. In combination with vertical farming, these technologies could increase the efficiency and quality of agricultural products.
A human-centered society is one that puts people first and where technology is used to unite and empower people. It is a society that values biological life and dignity above all else. It is a society that recognizes the importance of human relationships and works to strengthen them. In a human-centered society, all members of the community are valued and treated with respect.
It's hard to believe, but the way we experience and buy products is changing. With the advent of emerging technologies like artificial intelligence (Ai) and augmented reality (AR) and 3D printing, eCommerce and traditional retail are merging into one single experience.
The future of healthcare is here. New technologies like AI, IoT, big data, and smart sensors make it possible to become the CEO of your own health. Imagine that your phone can listen to your voice and AI algorithms can detect small nuances in the tone of your voice that indicate specific diseases.
