“Understand people’s behaviour and you will know what to do next!”
How are people going to behave in the (near) future? And what are the implications for leaders and business strategy? These are the two questions Dutch strategic foresight expert and university lecturer (social-psychology) answers in his entertaining, interactive and practical keynotes.
Thimon de Jong is the founder of WHETSTON, a strategic foresight think tank based in Amsterdam. WHETSTON explores the future of human behaviour, societal trends and generational change. These insights are then applied to leadership and business strategy. Thimon is an experienced (virtual) keynote speaker and leadership trainer and has worked for clients like Morgan Stanley, Vodafone, IKEA, Novartis, Nike, Microsoft, Warner, Tetra Pak and L’Oreal.
Thimon also lectures at the social psychology department of Utrecht University. He is a former insights & strategy director at TrendsActive, researcher at FreedomLab Future Studies and editor-in-chief of RELOAD Magazine. His first book Future Proof will be published in 2021.
Talking about mental health & resilience are part of the ‘new normal.’ What are the future expectations for the 2020’s? And most importantly: how can mental health be improved, both internally (employees) and externally (customers)?
