EdTech, LearnTech, MadTech … Whatever Tech

Will technology help us bridge the skill gaps or will it be the catalyst that widens the gap?

More detailed information

This keynote takes you into the world of new innovations that support learning, personal and organizational growth. You will be forced to reflect on the impact of human-centric innovations and ethics. We learn how technology in a human-machine symbiosis should help us to be more human as the world becomes more virtual.   


The future is now and delaying innovation makes no sense. This keynote helps to understand an opportunity-based approach to innovation as opposed to a problem-based approach.  It is the ideal starting point for organisations that want to bet on new technology from a holistic approach. 


Involvement of all stakeholders is the only way that innovation can land in an agile organisation.  This involvement implies that knowledgeable employees support the implementation. In addition, the transformation must support and anticipate the skill gap of employees.   


Technology is never the answer, people are. This keynote can be part of an executive workshop on transformation around human capital and technology.
