Keynotes: what do I talk about?

We live in an exciting and revolutionary era. Our familiar world is changing rapidly and radically, and we are at a major tipping point in our history. Together we must address hefty, interconnected problems and challenges. Businesses, governments and civil society organizations are busy making sense of these problems, finding vital solutions and taking action.

But how can the efforts of people and organizations contribute to a more sustainable environment and fair, inclusive society? How do we attract public attention for more impact and especially more progress? Real progress?  How do we mobilize people and organizations to transform awareness and desire into connection and implementation? And then what are the vital ideas and solutions for tomorrow’s world?

Vital solutions for the world of tomorrow

The spring of 2020 and the Covid-19 crisis have shown that the homo economicus has become an integral part of the material world. If we want to get out of the crisis better and prevent the next mega disruption, we have to enter into a different relationship with each other and nature. How do you do that?

Starting point for all my inspirements

Six principles

1. Honest storytelling
2. Cure against the delusion of the day

We are not in a health crisis or economic depression, but in a transformation to the next phase of our civilization. And there is no quick fix to the immense problems we have created for ourselves. I tell the honest and complete story. Based on facts. What are our limiting beliefs and what are the vital solutions for tomorrow’s world?

My inspirements are never about what is happening today but about what is happening every day. I rarely point out sensational trends, but rather the fundamental developments in our markets and society. Tomorrow’s weather is irrelevant, if it is to be about the climate. In this way I try to give a deeper and more honest insight into how the world works. Today and possibly in the future.

3. Independent but not neutral
4. Focused on vital solutions

I am independent, but not neutral, nor unbiased. This does not mean that I am partisan or adhere to only one ideology. I am transparent about my views and value the naked facts. But I give these meaning by interpreting them. Therefore, I am open about my worldviews and moral convictions. When the facts change, my opinions change with them.

I challenge stereotypes, prejudice and fear-mongering. I believe that a good dose of skepticism and realism opens up a view of the world and ourselves. My inspirements are sometimes confrontational, but certainly not intended to shock. I don’t just look at the problems, but above all at the vital solutions for the world of tomorrow. I am for positive change and actively contribute to it myself.

5. Impact over applause
6. No right, but a point

A positive and especially lasting impact is more important than high ratings and applause.  I don’t tell people what they want to hear, but what they should know. That’s why I always share my content, as a form of aftercare. This way I also get more feedback and my inspirements become more intense and the impact bigger.

I believe in transparency and continuous self-improvement. If I am wrong, I admit it and correct it. I make an effort every day to improve myself, my vision and contributions to a better world. In mutual desire and radical dependence. Finally, I find it more important to make a point than to be right.
