My daily job is to drive innovation in corporates, and to me that is all about bringing new perspectives. Robert is a master in just doing that. He uses inspiring, fun examples that are touching and tickling at the same time. He has found an unique way to connect his artistic background to this techy world we are living in. The only way to survive in this fast paced world, is to be able to adapt constantly. Robert's program about the adaptable mindset is a great way to get surprised and inspired!

Simone van Neerven
Head of Innovation Vueling
Despite all progress there’s still little wisdom in business. We pay little attention to the world of the arts, philosophy, games, science or design. The Adaptable mindset addresses this gap and disconnect in a playful, inspiring and activating way. It will broaden your perspective, change your mind and behavior.
