Who is Joachim De Vos
International keynote speaker, author, business owner/executive & professor specialising in foresight. Focus on the future, technology, foresight, strategy and innovation and how to prepare your organisation. Joachim De Vos, since 1995 top exec at Living Tomorrow, the leading international innovation platform connecting with 5M+ visitors about what the future could look like. He started TomorrowLab in 2007 as an innovation consulting company working with over 600 companies on innovation, future strategy, technology and open innovation. He is a professor of scenario planning at the University of Ghent. He is the author of the book entitled “Why Innovation Fails”, bringing the real story of Kodak together with the inventor of the digital camera, Steven Sasson. Joachim talks about the future, how it could unfold and how to prepare your organisation for this change. He talks with passion, vision, insight and, most importantly, practical experience of all these companies and consumer insights.
"There is no doubt that the way we live will be different in the future. The advances in technology and communications are changing our lives dramatically. I think the Living Tomorrow project of Joachim and his team – where you brainstorm about what is possible and you get people to come in, look at it, and talk about what this all means – is fantastic… I am certainly impressed with what I’ve seen."
Although we live in times of uncertainty, De Vos gives us hope in Why Innovation Fails. He offers practical insights and ideas to keep believing in the future. I was able to see up close how innovation is his life and how he and his teams open the eyes of companies, governments and cities to the unknown. "The Future is Ours" is his message!
