Billions of bright minds are online and connected and they all share their ideas, emotions, thoughts, and feelings. Innovation has exploded; every individual now has the power to create and launch new innovative products and services and make a big impact within their own community. There is almost no problem left that can’t be solved by smart online social swarming communities empowered by advanced software and unlimited machine learning power in the cloud. That’s the future we are heading for, a future where massive swarm organisations are ruling the world.
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.
Just for a moment, imagine your favorite football team (if you aren’t a football fan, feel free to substitute a music artist) performing before an audience of 20,000+ people. Now imagine you are one of the people in that audience. The moment is building. That moment when the football player has just scored that important goal (or your favorite artist is playing that #1 song) and the entire audience explodes and moves in the same rhythm. At that very moment, the audience becomes as one; a harmonious and coherent community behaving like one single organism. At that exact moment, incredible amounts of energy are released. As one of the audience, you can feel it. You are a part of it. You are it. It’s powerful stuff. What happens when an entire country celebrates winning like that? Now, instead of a crowd of 20,000 or 30,000 people, imagine a crowd of hundreds of millions of people, or even a billion highly connected people. What happens when that many souls start to act like one single organism and achieve one very hard-to-reach goal? Now, with that euphoric crowd in mind, imagine what that highly connected group of people will be able to do when they join forces? Billions of bright minds are now online and connected and they all share their ideas, emotions, thoughts, and feelings. Innovation has exploded; every individual now has the power to create and launch new innovative products and services and make a big impact within their own community. There is almost no problem left that can’t be solved by smart online social communities empowered by advanced software and unlimited machine learning power in the cloud. That’s Humanification. That’s the future we are heading for. That’s something worth having.
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.
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.
Organizations will need to be more fluid, 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.
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.
