A critical analysis of the relevance of selected current megatrends in different industries and economic contexts

Lectures on megatrends and future

One of the most important trends is digitization. It is not only a megatrend but is also classified as the 5th Kondratieff wave. This puts it at the same level of innovation as the steam engine or the railroad. For this reason, many industries are currently in the digital transformation. The respective companies integrate digitization into their business activities. With some business models, this change even goes so far as to speak of a digital disruption.

Based on these trends, we hold lectures for customer events and act as speakers at events such as trade fairs, congresses or conferences.

Future Digitalization: The Race to the World Operating System

Why we need new visions for economy, state and security

    What is the result of the digital transformation of the next 10 years?

    Will digitization still be compatible with our economic system?

    Does work still have a future in times of robotics, artificial intelligence and digital networking?

    Does our financial system allow the digital disruption of the banking industry?

    Are we on the right path to more security in a fully networked world?

    Who will dominate the (digital) world? What opportunities does Europe have between the US and China?

    How can digital technology help us solve the challenges ahead?
