Katja Schipperheijn is an internationally recognised author, learning strategist, futurist, lecturer and keynote speaker on human-centred innovations that support learning and the future of work and, by extension, society. Her provocative ideas challenge traditional dogmas and offer fresh perspectives on how organisations can achieve sustainable growth by investing in learning and a strategy focused on continuous improvement.

Katja's work explores the intersection of technology and human experience and its impact on our society, often drawing inspiration from observing the world through the eyes of our children. As such, Katja's keynote speeches are engaging, inspiring and tailored to the needs of her very diverse audience. Her energetic style and ability to connect with her audience make her an ideal choice for events focused on learning, innovation and technology for a future that already seems to have caught up with us.

Besides advising governments, multinationals, learning institutions and start-ups, Katja is also a philanthropist as founder of sCooledu and author of Little Digital Citizens (Dutch 2018). More than 15,000 children have already participated in her workshops about the future and the increasingly virtual world. In doing so, she demonstrates her commitment to social responsibility and the importance of promoting digital literacy among young people.

By booking Katja for an event, you not only gain valuable insights but also support a good cause.

Based on her most recent book Learning Ecosystems (2023) finalists best international business books in London and listed at Top 100 best international business books at the eLearning Journal in Germany, Katja also offers advice for selecting technology and implementing these innovations with involved stakeholders. This can be part of a tailor- made keynote and extended with a workshop.
