I am very thankful for your brilliant speech. It was not only fun to listen to you but also very inspiring. Everybody I was talking to loved it. That’s why I highly recommended you to the others that did not have the chance to listen to your speech.

For cultural institutions to remain relevant in the 21st century, we need to make some radical changes in the way we work and engage the public. What worked well yesterday simply doesn’t suffice anymore today, and will make us redundant tomorrow. Never before has constant change been as necessary as it is today.
Fortunately, new technologies, digital media and innovative ways of working cannot only help us to remain relevant, but also to attract new audiences, better connect with existing ones and make our content highly meaningful. Never before have there been as many opportunities to be successful as there are today.
I regularly give presentations on the topic of innovation, participation and the opportunities of media and technology for culture in the 21st century. Below there are some videos of performances at for instance MuseumNext in Edinburgh, Ignite Smithsonian in DC and a short talk in Dutch at Kom Je Ook?.
Looking for a more hands-on approach? I’ve hosted a number of workshops on these topics, for instance about digital engagement strategy at the Qatar Museum Authority, participation at Science Centre NEMO, online and institutional cooperation at the Dutch Museum Congress and many others.
Please contact me to inform about the possibilities to give a thought-provoking presentation at your event, or host an active workshop in your organisation.
