Our Lectures

Which lectures and keynote speeches do we offer?

From research and practice for the living and working world

Our lectures are designed like our research. We do not gloss over anything but we also do not dramatise unnecessarily. Especially in times of crisis, we provide scientifically proven basic information on the respective topic together with realistic scenarios of future developments, in which we emphasise the opportunities of the future!

With our lectures we convey scientifically sound information in an entertaining and often eye-opening way. We take the audience on a journey of discovery into the future of humanity, society, work, education or the interaction of generations. And we surprise them:

By exposing known truths as shaky, by opening unexpected perspectives and by constantly showing them how strongly abstract developments affect you personally – often faster than you think!

What futurologists and economic experts expect for the time after Corona.

The fragile society

Volker Heun / Lothar Abicht

What can we expect in the economy and society in the coming months during and after the end of the corona pandemic? How will the life of each individual change? What mechanisms have triggered the crisis and what significance will these mechanisms have for the period until 2030?

These and other questions will be answered by the speakers in the lecture, which is an anticipation of the two authors’ book in progress. They characterise a profound upheaval with chances and dangers for companies and people, leaving nothing out. The world of business and finance is attracting attention, as are politics, technology, research, consumption, health care and the world of work.

The lecture on the successful book

2030 - How many humans can the future hold?

What will change in the next 10-15 years in our way of living, loving, eating and working? How will the digital revolution, the development of biology, genetics and pharmacy affect us? Will we break the shackles of evolution? And how will we deal with the increasingly intelligent machines – or will they deal with us?

The lecture substantiates what will be possible in the future and shows astonishing directions outside the mainstream discussion.

How will we work in the future?

Do we work incessantly or does technology take the work away from us? Are we becoming an appendage to computers and robots or self-confident designers of a highly technical working world? Which activities are enduring, which are newly created and which are dropped? But above all: what will the workplace of the future look like? And which people will be needed there?

An entertaining combination of science and practice that sketches a thoroughly optimistic picture of the future.

How will the digital revolution change our way of studying

Digital technologies in education? Does this lead to lonely, transparent learners? Do learning processes become more interesting and eventful and do many more people gain access to them? And who will prevail: Monopoly providers such as Google or are we witnessing a move by universities into the digital learning age?

A technology lecture which, however, emphasises one human factor above all: the role of the learner.

Digitale Revolution unser Lernen verändert

Working world - Generation Y vs. Generation 50+

The successful combination of working and living, self-determined work, temporal and spatial flexibility – ideas and privileges of Generation Y? No way!

Work in the sense of meaningful activity is important for all age groups, even if today’s generation 50+ still often regards work as a necessary evil full of self-denial and pension as the most important goal. High time to question the 8 mistakes of the baby boomers.

Because: What do you actually do between 60 and 90?

How will we think and feel in the future?

Man is the most rational but at the same time the most emotional of all living beings. Our creative abilities have developed over thousands of years – is it possible that they will change within a few years? What does digitalisation do to our brains? Do emotions and thought processes also mean that we can influence them? Can we do that? Are we allowed to do that? Do the new technical possibilities help us to use our brains better, or are we just being researched and left behind by computers?

A critical look at the interaction of man and machine in the future.

The Digital Revolution

Digitalisation is sweeping around the globe like a storm and leaves nothing as it was. But is it really so new or are we experiencing the incredible acceleration of a development that is almost as old as human culture? Which technologies have the greatest potential to fundamentally change our world and turn entire industries upside down in the next 20 years? And above all: where does the human being stand in all these developments?

A lecture that vividly presents insider knowledge and sketches the picture of a fascinatingly changed world.

Your personal topic

Ready-made presentations often do not fit 100% to your own event. The topics listed above are therefore only a selection from the many possible focuses. You can have a presentation tailored to your needs around the topics “From the crisis to the future”, future of living environments, work, education, technology and generational transition.

For example, take a look at the table of contents of the book “2030 How Much Can the Future Hold?”. All topics dealt with there are also available as lectures with corresponding updates.
