Keynote speaker

Our world is changing at an exponential rate! A big tidal wave of digital disruption is coming at us fast. Many organizations experience this wave as a threat and fear them, but there are also organizations that just see this wave as an opportunity.

Disruptive organizations like Uber and Airbnb think like surfers and know exactly where and when they need to jump on the wave to harness the power of the wave to make exponential speed. Christian Kromme challenges organizations to think and act like a surfer and thus helps to transform disruptive threats into disruptive opportunities. In 2011, Christian Kromme did a unique finding.

During the search for his daughter’s health Christian Kromme discovered a unique wave pattern in the development of cells and biological organisms. These seven wave patterns also form a blueprint for the disruptive technology trends that we see around us today; the patterns are even able to predict future technology trends. This gives organizations and companies more certainty in the future and thus a solid foundation in the formation of long-term visions and strategies.
