Tomorrow will be radically different from today. Let us show you.

radical Keynotes.

To navigate the challenges of an unpredictable future, you need to envision and explore a wider range of possibilities. You need to leverage actionable insights to truly transform your business into a future-forward organization. You need a new mindset – and a new toolset.

Our keynotes go far beyond the “sage on stage” model of information dissemination. We deliver immersive participatory experiences designed to educate, entertain, and most importantly, create measurable change. We don’t hide behind fancy language, but say it like it is and focus on practical takeaway value. We stretch and challenge you and your workshop participants, as learning happens in the sweet spot of just outside our comfort zones. With us, you don’t just sit and listen; you do.

Our Topics.

No two keynotes should be the same.

Instead of delivering a pre-packaged keynote or workshop, every (and we mean every) session we deliver is created specifically for you and your audience. We start the process by asking you, “What does winning look like?” and then work backward from there. It is the only way we know to create something truly outstanding – something we can be proud of. Life is too short (and you and your audience too important) to do anything less.

We never talk about things we don’t have expertise in, even if it’s hip and trendy. Here is what we do know well, and just like a good dinner, most of our sessions are mix and match.

Decoding the Future.

In a world where change is the only constant, understanding and preparing for the future has never been more critical. With our proven, practical tools and frameworks, as well as cutting-edge insights, we turn you into a “practical futurist” – ready for anything the future might throw at you.

Innovation | Disruption | Transformation.

Drawing from our groundbreaking book “Disrupt Disruption,” we offer a fresh perspective that challenges conventional wisdom on the topic.Our practical approach to innovation not only demystifies the process but also equips you with the tools to innovate continuously and effectively.

Navigating Uncertainty.

What worked yesterday just doesn’t work tomorrow anymore (and likely doesn’t serve you well today already). Find the answer to the question, “How do you lead into and in the unknown?” and reframe uncertainty as a window into opportunity with the help of our insights and frameworks.

Sustainable Relevance.

How do you build an enduring organization in a constantly and rapidly changing world? By distilling insights from hundreds of leaders and organizations that have successfully managed change repeatedly, we offer answers to the eternal quest: “The goal of the game is to stay in the game.”

Rapid Prototyping.

Innovation requires action. Our rapid prototyping approach accelerates the innovation process, allowing for quick iteration and learning. This hands-on method ensures that your innovations are market-ready and poised for success—faster than ever before.

Deep Dive into (Generative) AI.

Truly understand what AI is, why it matters, and why it is all happening now. Plus, plenty of practical examples, use cases, and thought-provoking explorations on where AI will go, all delivered at just the right level of detail—not too detailed and not too high-level.
