Less is Beautiful
Discover how 'less' can succeed in business
'Less is Beautiful' … We live in a society with an abundance of products and services, connections, technologies, information but a downside is that we almost get paralyzed by the choices and possibilities (burn-outs, stress and less and less time for the real important things in life).
There are already several great examples of individual initiatives of people who live with less stuff or who choose to live a simpler life. But, there aren't a lot of examples of how professionals in organisations and governments can apply 'Less is Beautiful' to their daily practice. Get inspired by loads of examples from very different industries and learn how you can apply three simple principles to experience ‘less is more’: start to stop, simplify and letting go. This presentation gives you insights into the exaggerated search for efficiency, the paradox of choice, and very concrete examples and tools to apply 'Less is Beautiful' to your professional lives.
A different look on time
‘I have no time’, ‘Time flies’, ‘Just in time’, ‘I haven’t seen you for a while’, Time is money’, This product or service will save you a lot of time’, … These sentences are some of the expressions with time. Time is an aspect of life that will join us from the moment when we are born until our earth time has come to an end. It looks like the whole society is built upon the task to get control over time. Most people only know the clock as a form of time but there are a lot more shapes of time. You will get an overview of these different shapes and experience some of them. We will also break some thinking patterns and offer you a new model – Time-volution – to get a different perspective on time. During the presentation, you get inspired by several interesting, amazing, weird things to know about this intriguing topic.
