Ready made lectures

The post-corona world largely resembles the pre-corona world. But the pandemic has led to a digitization battle that is now five times faster than in the pre-corona time. However, life in the QR era has changed significantly in some respects. The recombination of working from home and working in the office is drastic for office workers. This leads to interesting domestic migration movements. We have become a technocracy, while at the same time we also want more human warmth.

In the following lectures I will tell my audience about different facets of the future, such as the future of work, the future of government, the future of entrepreneurship and the future of living together.

Welcome to the Age of Chaos

All great changes are preceded by chaos. Changes and innovations often take place gradually, but once in a while they happen really fast.
These revolutionary periods, such as the Renaissance and the Industrial Revolution, were preceded by a period of chaos.
In Florence, for example, a third of the population died from the Plague in such a chaotic time, while at the same time the city became a renowned center of innovation. After that the Renaissance began.

Healthcare in the 21st Century

The healthcare sector has changed dramatically during the corona pandemic. Digitization and technology have accelerated, flexibility has increased as a result of dealing with the crisis, but staff turnover has also increased. The industry is more relevant than ever, certainly due to the aging population. But the Central Planning Bureau warns that healthcare will soon become unaffordable. How to deal with all these trends and challenges. This lecture gives stakeholders in healthcare an insight into tomorrow’s healthcare. Because of his and his husband’s illnesses in recent years, Adjiedj has also become an expert by experience, he enlivens his story with anecdotes and personal experiences with healthcare providers.

Megatrends Entrepreneurship

No less than 97 percent of Dutch companies are SMEs.

SMEs account for 47.5% of the turnover of the total Dutch business community and no less than 97 percent of the companies with their own R&D activities come from SMEs. Nobody talks about entrepreneurship as a lifestyle, yet that is exactly what it is.

Bakas developed this lecture, based on the book of the same name, for business associations or for customer meetings of banks and accountants where many SMEs come. Bakas knows SMEs like no other.

He is the shadow minister of Innovation in the shadow cabinet of entrepreneurs’ association ONL.

The financial industry in the post-corona era

The money press is on at all central banks and low interest rates are the motto worldwide. Inflation remains reasonably limited and can remain that way, partly to finance an aging population, according to the New Monetary Theory. But can this really continue?

Or is the financial-monetary system bankrupt?

What will happen to gold and cryptocurrencies?

What will China do?

The future of work

Many have started working from home during the corona crisis. Now employers want their staff to come (partly) back to the office. But what will happen to office jobs in the future?

According to the authoritative Singularity University, more than 80 percent of people will lose their current job in the next 10 to 15 years. Old jobs disappear, new ones take their place. Since 1850, the working week has been shortened further and further, from 70 hours then to 35 hours now.

We are heading for an even shorter working week, redistribution of paid and unpaid work in the participatory society and the right to paid work for at least one day a week, as an alternative to benefits and basic income.

The future of work will be a completely different one than many people think.
