Inspiration Speech

Digitalization has created remarkable opportunities, but for whom specifically? What is the purpose of human contribution if robots and computers can work 24/7 without mistakes, without rest and most of all, without whining?

With the 30-minute program Wild Wild World Future Now sets out in search of our right to exist in the digital world. With exquisite stand-up consulting we make sure your employees are able to surf the digital wave. Our promise is enjoyment until enlightenment! The future becomes present, panic turns to motivation and paralysis transforms to empowerment. An inspiring prelude or a perfect conclusion for events or workshops of fifty or more people.

Change Boost

Stand-up Consulting

How you communicate your message decides how much energy you will set free with it – and whether this energy works in favor of your goals or is contrary to them.

With a tailor-made HOW we help you to achieve the former rather than the latter! Based on interviews and front-line research, we bring your message to the point. According to your goals, we develop a coherent story with humor and a special flair for dramaturgy. Our external perspective as stand-up consultants gives us the creative freedom to put the finger in the proverbial wound. By addressing resistance, fear or supposed taboos and humorously exaggerating them, we make those issues debatable and eventually redundant. Thanks to this method, we help awaken the audience and give it the energy you desire.  Whether strategy, reorganization, quality management, sales targets or organizational agility are your primary focus, your story deserves to be told in the best possible manner. Uncompromising. Live. Get your tailor-made story now and redefine the future of your venture!

Future Hack


The master program of the change of perspective. Leave well-trodden paths. Now. In thinking as in acting – and specifically in the design of your strategy or change workshop.

Those workshops develop their full potential in combination with a performative prelude such as the Change Boost or Wild Wild World, since these inputs create the open and energic athmosphere to fully engage in whatever process you’d like to iniciate.

During these highly interactive workshops, we create the space for new ideas. As part of our own playbook, we like to use the following methods:

Liberating Structures

As facilitators and moderators, we allow all participants to have their say and be heard. Everyone can contribute their knowledge and experience new insights in rapid, energetic cycles. This allows the entire group to unleash its full force, both creatively as well as intellectually.

Interactive Theater

This format gives all participants the opportunity to analyze different situations by using interactive theater techniques. While developing specific ideas or acting out future scenarios, implicit knowledge or possible solutions are unearthed, either conscientiously or inadvertently.

Applied Improvisation

What does it take for a team to pull together in volatile, uncertain, complex or ambiguous circumstances and then to develop a coherent story together? With targeted exercises, we strengthen competencies that help individuals and teams in such situations. Important themes include courage, flexibility, perception, joy of experimentation, intuition, appreciation and tolerance for mistakes.
