Christian Kromme

Thought Leader, International Speaker and Best Selling Author

Christian Kromme was an innovative tech-entrepreneur for 15 years until he discovered the DNA behind disruptive innovation and how to use this to predict the next big wave of technological disruption.

Now Christian is one of the most in-demand futurist keynote speakers, speaking in front of hundreds of thousands of entrepreneurs, business leaders and policymakers about the radical impact of disruptive technologies on humans and organisations.

During the search to aid his daughter’s health, Christian Kromme discovered a unique wave pattern in the development of living cells and biological organisms. Living cells and biology solve problems in the same order as humans and technology do.

The human body is a coherent community of over 37 trillion cells that work together in harmony. These cells are highly intelligent, and they have many things in common with human beings.Living cells solve problems in the same way as humans beings do. The only difference is that cells use biological systems to build organisms, and human beings use technological systems to build organisations.  The wave patterns he discovered 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.

Christian is the author of the Amazon best-selling book “Humanification – Go Digital, Stay Human ‘. In this book, Christian focuses on the fascinating parallels between biology and technology. The waves of technological innovations that follow each other in rapid rate are in fact no coincidence. The book Humanification ‘helps managers, entrepreneurs, and investors anticipate and navigate in an extremely rapidly changing world full of disruptive innovations and exponential technologies.

In addition to speaking, Christian is working on the ‘Go Digital, Stay Human’ documentary and he holds a position as a board member at the Kronos Workforce Institute EMEA, The Human Genome Foundation and other tech start-ups.

In 2002, Christian founded his own agency (Artificial Industry), the agency facilitated disruptive technologies, ideas and incubator solutions for big brands such as Randstad, Oracle, Philips, Toyota, Auping, and Adidas, Bjorn Borg, Endemol, Rabobank, Corio, EyeWorks, ABP among others. As an executive advisor Christian stood at the cradle of several successful disruptive initiatives, often spin-outs in completely different industries but always focused on the interface between humans and technology. Christian and his agency have received several nominations and awards for its innovative vision and people-oriented approach, including Shell LiveWIRE Young Business Award SAN Award, Gold Award hooking, Red Herring Top100, Broos van Erp Prize, and many others. In 2014, Christian sold his agency to a multinational company so he could focus on giving presentations and workshops about disruptive innovation and exponential technologies.

Christian Kromme takes you on a journey through our exponentially changing world where increasing disruptive technologies and business models provide a massive shift of power towards the consumer.

Topics

Humanification Go Digital, Stay Human

Our world is changing at an exponential rate! A big tidal wave of digital transformation and disruption is coming at us fast. Many organisations see this wave as a threat and experience stress, but there are also organisations that just see this wave as an opportunity. Disruptive organisations act like surfers and know exactly where and when they need to jump on the wave of exponential technology to harness the power of the wave to make exponential speed.

Human Centered Artificial Intelligence

For a long time people are talking about Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, but it's really going to happen right now. In this keynote about the future of Artificial Intelligence I tell about the rise and impact of Artificial Intelligence. Companies must be prepared for this, so they can participate in these changes. Organisations that don't look at AI and Robotics could be disappear within a few years. The role of Artificial Intelligence on humanity, society and companies is the core element in this keynote. After this keynote you will know how to apply Artificial Intelligence on a human-centred level in your organisation.

Human Centered Jobs & Organisations

Sadly, many organisations will fall, but there will be a saving grace. At the same time, many more online platforms are going to empower more and more people to earn a living without needing a company or government to take care of them. I’m fundamentally optimistic that some of these platforms are going to end up transferring jobs and revenue from the big institutions to millions of people all over the world instead, providing a decent direct income.

Welcome in the Purpose Economy

If we mirror the patterns of Nature, then as our collective intelligence matures, we as a society will start to increasingly reflect on ourselves and have the tools to do something useful with what we discover. That gives me great hope that we will have the power and the will to solve bigger and bigger problems and realise our needs to understand the world around us and ultimately gain true insight into ourselves.

Future of Information and Communication

When every device with all its sensors and inbuilt intelligence has the capability to talk to all the other devices in it’s surrounding we will have an immense amount of contextual information. Our technology will know everything about us: which room you’re in, who you are with, where your car is, where your clothes are, whether your refrigerator is empty or not. What to do with all this information?

Future of Sharing and Collaboration

Increasingly we aren’t just sharing information; the growing trend is that we are starting to share our assets as well. Since the development of more and more platforms that allow us to share specific things, sharing our assets has gone virtual – and viral. So what’s next for the future of social sharing and collaboration? Let’s step into the future for a moment and see what sharing might look like in the near future.

The nice thing about Christian's keynote is that it is not an abstract high over presentation, he shows through practical examples that the exponential growth of technological developments is no longer unavoidable. Christian honestly and sincerely shows the chances and positive aspects of all those developments. That is what he does in his very own human way. And that is a unique combination for a fascinating keynote.

Manpower Group

Christian can help companies and people to take advantage of increasing technology and turn a threat into a challenge. Because every change offers endless opportunities.

Vanad Group

Christian made a truly inspiring speech on innovation which generated a broader perspective for the law enforcement community in terms of novelty and exponential growth of changes introduced in our society.
