What can we learn from children to create the future of work?

This motivational yet slightly provocative keynote takes you into the world of our children to shape the future of your organization.

More detailed information

Meta- and virtual worlds have been the old normal for our children for years.  Yet as adults, we mainly see the dangers and are driven by fear of the unknown.  When we enter the world of children, we experience the possibilities that digital citizenship has to offer them. We close the gap between the generations and learn from each other, each with our own background and competences. By emphasising the hypes and hopes of AI and its ethical impact, we point out the responsibilities for us as human beings, as organisations and as society.    


This keynote brings together the experience of 4 years of workshops with over 15,000 children and young people.   


It is an ideal session to engage employees in digital transformation and the opportunities it offers from a positive perspective.  For the education sector it helps to implement a sustainable vision of learning that supports children in their well-being.
