Keynote Outline

The world is changing faster and faster.  Organizations, companies, schools and regions have to adapt to a world that is flooded with information and need to increase their power to learn and innovate dramatically. Today’s organisations and companies however are not able to create the right learning and working environment that enables and energizes disruptive innovation by using passion for talents. We unintentionally transformed talented adults and children into passionless sheep. We must rethink the organization of working and learning. We should boldly go for disruptive business innovation powered by disruptive culture innovation.

This session is a plea for a dramatic change in the organization of work and education. After this session 2D, 3D, Sheep and Red Monkeys will be branded in your brain. You will become disrupted.

  • Attendees will learn that transforming organizations into real learning and innovating organizations will not be possible with consensus, but will be driven by conflicts
  • Attendees will learn a new model for disruptive innovation: Red Monkey Innovation Management
  • Attendees will understand the impact of today’s information luxury on the organization of learning and work. We must get rid of our diploma-addiction and go for Competence Playlist Based learning and working.

Keynote Outline

Change is a force that acts on all aspects of life and business.  Those of us who work in change-related professions are continually assisting people through transformation, whether it be what the customer does, how they do it or even whether they do it in the future.  In most cases the need for change is a positive one, but it can be an unsettling and even frightening experience.

David was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 2010 and in this session he will explain the personal impact this had on him and how it has deepened his understanding of the way change works. In his own uniquely humorous way David will explore the nature of change, the effects it has on people and the lessons he has learnt from his journey. He will share his own thoughts and philosophy on what motivates him, the inspirational figures who have guided him and how he has applied this to his work and personal life.   He will discuss:

  • Two change models; the Change Curve and The Hero’s Journey
  • How to discover your own motivation to make change
  • How to communicate change effectively to others.
