Thimon de Jong - Talare

Founder of Whetston | Strategic Foresight

”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.

 

Lectures:

IMAGINING A POST-COVID WORLD
It is time to envision how we will come out of this Covid crisis (the so-called transition/compensation period) and the world after the pandemic. What do the roaring twenties have in store for us and how to practically think about that post-Covid world?

 

HIGH-TRUST LEADERSHIP IN LOW-TRUST TIMES
What can leaders do to increase trust – in their organisations and in themselves? How will high-trust partnerships be build in the 2020’s? What are the implications on decision making of a low-trust / post-truth society?

 

THE HUMAN SIDE OF A DIGITAL/VIRTUAL FUTURE
How to strike the perfect ‘digital balance: combining the best of the virtual ánd the physical. And how will people step aboard the next generation of new technology? How to overcome ‘algorithm aversion’ – from a consumer and leadership perspective?

 

YOUTH IN ACTION: GENERATION Z & BEYOND
Welcome Gen Z! And yes, they are different. These modest entrepreneurial teens have entered the world of work years ago. Wise beyond their years, they approach the world with a activist & fresh perspective.

 

MENTAL HEALTH IN THE 2020’S
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)?
