Katja Schipperheijn is an internationally recognised author, strategist, futurist, lecturer and keynote speaker. Her expertise focuses on AI and ground-breaking innovations that create a human-machine symbiosis. 

Her provocative ideas challenge traditional dogmas and offer fresh perspectives. In doing so, she inspires executives and employees to adapt before they suffer irreversible harm.  AI is therefore ubiquitous, influencing organisations and their employees with unprecedented speed.

Only when a Learning Mindset prevails and organisations have an Ecosystem strategy that underpins continuous improvement can they achieve sustainable growth. To this end, Katja's research explores the intersection of technology and humanity and its impact on our society. In doing so, she is often inspired by observing the world through the eyes of children who embody the future of work.

Katja's keynote speeches are therefore engaging, inspiring and tailored to the needs of her very diverse audience.

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.
